Kim Brokaw is a Bureau County native and a 2013 graduate of Blackhawk College in Moline, IL where she received her Applied Science Degree in the Physical Therapist Assistant program.
She has several years experience providing physical therapy in the skilled nursing setting. In 2015 she also became part of the team of therapists at Princeton Physical Therapy, which is not the Princeton Clinic of Doctors of Physical Therapy. Here she enjoys working in the orthopedic outpatient setting.
While placing importance on listening to the patients’ needs and goals, Kim is skilled at introducing appropriate exercises for strengthening and increasing mobility for each patient, as well as providing manual therapy and utilizing various modalities as needed. She finds it very rewarding to help patients find ways to reduce or even eliminate their pain during their time in physical therapy at DPT.
Having previously been a patient for shoulder physical therapy herself, Kim is enthusiastic about helping facilitate a patient’s treatment program in ways that help them achieve their goals of successfully returning to their prior level of work, daily activities and hobbies.
