I am new to the world of physical therapy joining the extraordinary office admin staff in 2017. Before joining the CIM team I spent 10 years in the hotel industry. I love to sing (if you can call it that) karaoke, travel (anywhere and everywhere I can!), getting to know people and what drives them, and water (water is my favorite element; in all its many forms). My favorite part of this job is watching the transformation in a person’s mind and body from their initial evaluation, where they are often in a lot of pain, to when they are discharged because they are doing better. It’s amazing what we do here and I am very proud to be a part of it!

I am 100% cured. No more numbness in my fingers. I don’t even need to wear my brace at night anymore. Your recommended equipment and posture changes did the trick. Thanks so much!

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it. Derek took time explaining to me how dry needling could help the situation, the results were amazing. It took about 4-5 sessions of dry needling…

Tim has been helping me deal with various running and cycling injuries for a couple of years. They have included hip, back, calf, and knee issues. The at-home exercises he recommended helped so much, and I am now running and cycling pain free. He also recommended a specific strength training program. I am so grateful…

Three months ago I started working with David at the College/Harmony facility. What a difference he has made…
Through a combination of dry needling and exercises, Terry had my lower back pain gone within a few weeks. His approach to care is great — educate the patient, give ’em the necessary tools, and the healing happens.

I was impressed that he often would follow up with an e-mail with photos…
I was referred to Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and saw John. He was very helpful in easing the pain in my shoulder and gave me exercises to do at home in short increments of time that would fit into my schedule, but would still accomplish the goal. He will listen to any concerns, is very…
