Kim received her master’s in science physical therapy degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and her Bachelor of Science degree from Stockton University. She continues to expand her knowledge and skills by attending a variety of continuing education courses to provide the highest quality of care to her patients. She is certified in the Graston Technique (GTS). GTS is an evidence-based instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) that enables clinicians to effectively treat chronic, acute, or post-surgical soft tissue restrictions, range of motion, and inflammation with specially designed stainless-steel instruments. With over 20 years of experience in outpatient orthopedics, Kim has worked with patients of all ages and backgrounds. Her approach to patient care is to start with a thorough evaluation and then build an individualized plan of care geared toward each patient’s personal goals. Various treatment techniques and manual therapies are integrated to treat the underlying cause of pain and not just the symptoms. These include but are not limited to Graston Technique (IASTM), McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, Mulligan concept, Kinesiotaping, Myofascial Release, and postural/ergonomic training. Patient education and home exercise plans are also key components to each successful recovery. Kim takes pride in getting to know each patient and delivering the personal attention needed to help them reach their goals in the quickest way possible.
When Kim is not working, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three children playing sports, coaching, skiing, and hiking.
