Ryan Haskell, PT

Schools Attended: Ryan’s undergraduate degree was in Biology at Washington State University, and he went on to get his MPT at University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in St. Augustine, FL in 2002. Back then, St. Augustine had only one campus and the cost for a master’s degree was less than a third of a therapy degree now!

Hobbies & Interests: Ryan has been involved with playing football poorly, track, cross country, wrestling and crew in college. Ryan and his wife Amy have two children, Luke and Natalie as well as an untrainable pound dog named Emma. Emma has already sustained her first broken limb and surgical repair from running away from them and into traffic. She is expected to make a full recovery. Ryan normally enjoys running with Emma every morning, but that will have to wait for at least 5 weeks as she undergoes canine rehab.

Activities that keep Ryan and his family busy outside of work include homeschooling their children, morning bible study, outdoor activities and watching movies together. They are new in Idaho and are learning to enjoy all the outdoor recreation in the area. Ryan and his family look forward to exploring the region further in the years to come!

As of 2021, Ryan has almost 18 years’ experience in physical therapy and has extensive experience in spinal rehabilitation, balance/vestibular rehab, and sports/work injuries. He has always enjoyed seeing patients come in with an assistive device on the first visit and finish up rehab by walking out the door independently. He finds it is also fulfilling to see people get back to their normal lives and the activities they enjoy. Ryan believes living your life without pain is more important than any amount of money you
could earn.
