Kim received her doctorate of physical therapy from Western University and her physical therapy degree from California State University, Long Beach in 1985. She obtained her Masters degree in Biokinesiology from the University of Southern California in 1996.

She has specialized in the treatment of orthopedic injuries for the past 20 years. Recently, Kim has directed her continuing education towards rehabilitation of the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. Kim developed this interest after her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and, as a result of the surgery and subsequent treatment, her grandmother lost her shoulder mobility and developed lymphedema. In addition to becoming certified in the treatment of lymphedema, Kim completed the STAR training to address and treat other side effects of cancer including unspecified pain, neuropathy and fatigue. Kim co-founded Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation with Michael McKindley in October of 2004.

Alison Nguyen, DPT


  • Spine & Ortho Rehabilitation
  • Injury Prevention & Sports Rehab
  • Exercise Management for Chronic Illness

Alison was born and raised in Los Angeles and now calls Garden Grove his home. He is an honors graduate from the University of St. Augustine where he obtained his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry from UC Santa Barbara,

where he was a teaching assistant and led student lectures on Human and Exercise Physiology. He then went out to obtain a Masters of Science degree in exercise physiology from San Diego State University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude.

Alison became interested in the medical field after designing his own healthcare plan to lose over 100 pounds. By trial and error and a few injuries he was able to obtain his goal of better health, It was that pursuit and interest in the science of medicine that led to his foray into exercise physiology that provided the spark to pursue a physical therapy career. Motivated to help others obtain better physical health, Alison has a unique insight into overcoming obstacles to achieve those goals, whether it is rehabbing from an injury or a surgical procedure, or simply using exercise to improve the health of those suffering from chronic or complex conditions. 

Alison is fluent in Vietnamese.

In addition, Alison has a special interest in sports rehabilitation and conditioning and has worked with several local youth sports teams. He has received advanced training in myofascial manipulation and is currently pursuing a Strength and Conditioning certification. Using evidence-based science combined with his clinical experience, Alison is committed to designing customized programs to achieve results.

In his free time, he likes to power lift, ride his bicycle up/down the coast, play spike ball, and pretty much participate in anything active in order to offset his voracious appetite. He loves to eat-KBBQ, Shabu, pizza, cheese, and his favorite type of dessert is ice cream.
