About Us

Our Company

Cottage Rehab & Sports Medicine is a professional therapy services corporation established to provide outstanding physical, occupational and speech therapy services.

The company was founded in 1997 by Christopher Byers, PT, and Michael Salaway, MSPT, as a physical therapy provider to area nursing homes and home health agencies.

Since then, it has grown to encompass eight outpatient physical therapy centers throughout central Illinois offering all levels of physical rehabilitation as well as providing services to area home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, and various other healthcare providers.

This growth and development allows us to be involved in the entire continuum of care as it related to physical rehabilitation services.

Both Chris and Michael have always believed that when there is a will, there is a way. Their vision from the start was to build a new kind of rehabilitation company that provided residents of small towns with peace of mind that they could access the most advanced, rehab care solutions and modern technology available.

At the core of our mission is a conviction that people can be helped to regain mobility, strength and hope.

We are committed to being a leader in rehabilitation services through our focus on patients, professionals, and technology.

Our patients can be assured of the highest quality of care through our successful integration of clinical practice, varied environments and the latest evidence-based care and modern technology.

We are committed to your well-being. Our results-oriented philosophy and effective communication are the hallmarks of our positive patient outcomes.
