Kincart Physical Therapy Services welcomes Katie (Appler) Kincart, DPT to the department team. Katie Kincart will join fellow Doctor of Physical Therapy Jackie Wells along with Physical Therapists Brian Sharp and Karen Kincart.
Katie is a graduate of Centerville, High School in 2012. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Physiology from the University of Iowa in 2016. Soon after, she began the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Iowa Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. During her time there Katie received the Tracy Dahl Family Scholarship for dedication to physical therapy and a desire to provide the highest level of care. Her clinical experience includes: acute care, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient orthopedics with a heavy emphasis on manual therapy, and neuromuscular physical therapy. She also has experience in traumatic brain injuries and cardiopulmonary conditions including congestive heart failure, post-cardiac events, and cystic fibrosis.
“We are excited to have Katie join the experienced professionals at Kincart Physical Therapy Services. Her advanced credentials and exceptional training from the University of Iowa Physical Therapy Program has more than prepared her to serve the Davis County Hospital and community at large,” said Karen Sloan-Kincart, PT, LAT.
Kincart Physical Therapy Services is now also offering Speech Therapy on their roster of services provided by Speech Therapist, Trinity Davis, CCC-SLP. Along with occupational therapy and physical therapy, patients who come to Kincart Physical Therapy Services in the Davis County Hospital can receive well-rounded care addressing multiple medical problems all in the same place.
Speech therapy involves the evaluation and treatment of those with difficulties swallowing, speaking, as well as cognitive impairment, and is helpful for adults as well as children.
“Adding speech therapy was a natural move to get patients back to 100 percent, not only with how they’re feeling but in all aspects of their lives,” said Karen Sloan-Kincart, PT, LAT.
Striving to be a leader in wellness and rehabilitation, Kincart Physical Therapy Services has provided over 30 years of service to Davis County Hospital. For more information, visit https://www.dchc.org/services/physical-therapy/.
