Michelle Kim, DPT, Joins Progressive Physical Therapy & Rehab in Irvine
Michelle Kim, DPT, a Southern California native who earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Chapman University in Orange County joins the staff at Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in the Irvine office.
“We are excited to have Michelle join our team,” said Michael McKindley, DPT, owner of the clinic. “She is bright and very personable with an interest in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation that fits in perfectly with the personalized services that we offer our patients.”
Hailing from a family of healthcare providers, Michelle always knew she would follow in that tradition and began her educational journey by obtaining a Bachelor of Science Degree from U.C.L.A.
During her undergraduate years, she utilized her volunteering duties at the hospital to explore the various medical 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 for a patient’s daily life
