Specialties:

  • Vestibular & Neuromuscular Rehabilitation
  • Sports & Ortho Rehab
  • Balance, Gait & Posture

Michelle Kim, a Southern California native, received her doctorate of physical therapy from Chapman University and a Bachelor of Science Degree from U.C.L.A. Hailing from a family of healthcare providers, Michelle always knew she would follow in that tradition.

During her undergraduate years, she utilized her volunteering duties at the hospital to explore the various fields and approaches to patient care to help guide her career path. What struck her the most was the ability of a physical therapist and the rehabilitation process to tangibly help patients improve their quality of life. This realization led her to pursue a career in physical therapy where she could have a direct and meaningful relationship with her patients.

One of the aspects of her physical therapy training that most intrigued Michelle was neurological and vestibular rehabilitation. She says she likes the problem-solving aspect and how seemingly simple interventions can make a world of a difference in a patient’s daily life. Toward that end, she has received advanced training, earning a vestibular and concussion management certification from the prestigious American Institute of Balance.

Key to her success is using those problem-solving skills that include listening to patients to help understand and identify the cause of the issue, in order to develop a rehabilitation program that will help each individual achieve their desired goals whether it be from a sports-related injury, an orthopedic issue or surgery, or a more complex neurological condition.

When Michelle is not at work, she is very involved in her church and enjoys hiking, going to the beach, watching baseball, eating good food, and watching movies.

  • Ortho & Sports Injuries
  • Aquatic Sports & Artistic Swimming
  • Artistic Sports Performance Injury Rehab
  • Movement, Body Mechanics & Joint Hypermobility

Rachel, who grew up in Redondo Beach grew up the world of aquatic sports participating in both water polo and synchronized swimming competitively from a young age through college  She received her Doctorate in Physical Education from California State University Long Beach.

She was inspired to become a physical therapist during her own rehabilitation program following a shoulder injury in high school.

“I had a typical shoulder injury in high school from the repetitive movements of synchronized swimming and water polo,” Rachel said.  “Most, if not all, the PTs did not know about synchronized swimming and all it entailed. I was, however, fortunate to find an amazing therapist who really took the time to learn about my sport. This really inspired me.  Additionally, being inspired by the healing process plus loving anatomy and physiology really piqued my interest.”

Rachel is delighted with the opportunity to join the Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation team. She says they offer the same type of care she received in high school, where they listen to the patient and take the time to work through all the issues, creating personalized plans to reduce pain and improve movement and function.

“I really enjoy connecting with the patients and integrating their interests into their program,” Rachel added. “I like making PT meaningful to a patient even if I have to learn about something new.”

Rachel left California to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in rehabilitative science with a minor in theatre and psychology at the University of the Incarnate Word in Texas. At Cal State Long Beach she was a research assistant where she worked on a feasibility pilot study for mHealth exercise intervention to improve cardiometabolic health, quality of life and social support.

Outside of work, Rachel continues to stay involved in the performance arts and aquatic sports community as both an artistic swim coach and fitness coach, stage manager, performer with Aqualillies.
