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…
From the very first treatment with Tim I knew I was on the road to recovery. A combination of dry needling, manipulation, home exercises relieved my chronic leg pain caused by a herniated disk. I was in severe pain and limited mobility for more than 3 years. I’ve had 4 treatments and I’m back on…

Bio coming soon!
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!
