“Kim’s knowledge of the body and intuitive ability to diagnose and treat injuries makes her one of the best manual therapists in the area.  Not only have I personally benefited from her therapy, buy my athletic children have been able to continue playing sports due to her intervention”-BS, Barrington, RI

“Kim has helped many of my personal training clients recover from pre-existing injuries, allowing them to get back to their workouts.  I find her pleasant demeanor and professional approach refreshing, and my clients have enjoyed working with her.  Her concern for her patients is evident; she is great about following up and collaborating with me so that proper progression of exercise ensures success.”-BGS,  Barrington, RI

“Kim Serra was recommended to me by my doctor to treat my back pain related to scoliosis. Kim is extremely knowledgeable and skilled with applying her expertise through manual therapy and low intensity aerobic activity. She taught me how to minimize and manage my pain through exercise to strengthen my core and through strategies to correct my posture, movement and daily activities. With her guidance I have been able to modify how I engage in outdoor activities such as walking, biking, and gardening in a way that I can continue to enjoy my desired life style. The pain and discomfort I had been experiencing for most of the past 5 years has been greatly reduced.”   – Marilyn S.

“Kim Serra has been a lifesaver for me. She supported me before surgery, helped me decide about the need for surgery, and she guided my recovery since surgery. Kim has gone above and beyond the call of duty as a physical therapist, I could not recommend her more highly.”   – Eileen G. Johnson

“As a massage therapist specializing in chronic and acute pain and one who works with professional and amateur athletes, it is very important for me to have a support team of competent professionals to refer my clients to.  Every referral reflects on my reputation, so you can imagine how cautious I am to refer to only the most knowledgeable and effective physical therapists.  I’ve had the pleasure of sharing clients with Kim for over 10 years, and I have never been disappointed by her work.  Her unique training and mastery of manual therapy yields much faster results than traditional physical therapy.  Just as importantly, you’ll receive the personalized one-on-one care and continuity, which unfortunately is harder and harder to come by.  I trust Kim implicitly as do many, many people in the community.  Her success has been built on her skill, professionalism, and integrity.  And of course her phenomenal results.”   -Sara Riley,  LMT

“As a former competitive high school runner and lacrosse player, and current collegiate athlete, I’ve had my fair share of injuries.  From stress fractures, to shin splints, to ankle sprains, Kim as always been there to help me rehab and strengthen my existing injuries in order to return to competition in an efficient manner.  If it weren’t for Kim, I would’ve likely missed an extensive amount of competition time;  however, Kim’s work allowed me to quickly get back to playing the sports that I love while being healthy and ready to compete!”      Mary Kate Coogan
“My family has been seeing Kim for their Physical Therapy needs for more than 15 years.  We refer to Kim as “The Miracle Worker” since her specialized form of manual therapy is done with her hands to help restore natural movement without pain.  It may take a few weeks to get an initial appointment – but she is worth the wait!!”    Karen G.  6/3/15

“Thank you so much for the care and treatment you have given me on and off for the last 5 years!  Your treatment and exercise program that you gave me really makes a difference in how I get through my day.  Without your help I would not be able to get through the day without pain.  Your one on one, hands on treatment really gets the job done.  Thanks!”   Eileen Brandao – Riverside, RI
“Kimberly Serra is an excellent Physical Therapist.  No “factory style” treatment at her practice.  Kim’s one-on-one method is the only way to go for comprehensive, personalized treatment.  From my initial phone conversation to my last visit, Kim was amazing.  Trusting in her technique of combining manual therapy, a personalized exercise program, and daily living advice, my back is now pain free and stronger than ever!  I highly recommend Serra Physical Therapy.”    Donna Celone – Bristol, RI
“When I began treatment last November, I had been diagnosed with a mild pinched nerve.  I was in constant moderate to intense in my left shoulder, which radiated down my arm.  I was also on 900 mg of Gabapentin a day.  Within 4 months of therapy with Kim and doing my “homework”, I was pain and drug free, and I remain so today.  I live in Rehoboth, MA and being treated by Kim was well worth the drive”  – CG
“I herniated a disc in my low back in 2004 and my doctor told me that I needed surgery.  I had tried 3 different Physical Therapists and 2 chiropractors over a number of years as was living with constant pain and taking pain medications to get through each day.  I was encouraged by sister to see her therapist, Kim Serra.  Within only a few weeks, Kim had me off of the narcotic oxycodone and I was even able to stop taking ibuprofen in a couple of months.  Kim Serra has done what no one else has been able to do ….. help me to live pain free!!!”
Michael Cambra – Cranston, RI 

“I would highly recommend Kim Serra as a Physical Therapist for all your physical therapy and rehabilitation needs.  Last year I suffered a low back injury that had me in considerable pain which severely limited my everyday activities.  I started physical therapy with Kim to rehabilitate my injury, strengthen my lower back, and ultimately allow me to resume my full range of activity.  Kim was able to diagnose and treat my injury and she prescribed specific exercises to prevent future occurrences.  All patients receive individual personal attention and a treatment plan that is specifically structured to their specific needs.  My experience with Kim has been fantastic!!!”
