"LOVE working with Dr. Mims. She is so talented as a physical therapist. Her techniques for relief of acute pain and strengthening as a preventative have had a huge impact on lower back and hip issues. In addition, she has given me tools to use at home in between our sessions that have made my progress more rapid. She is a professional, caring, top notch physical therapist. The use of pilates in her treatment protocol has created permanent improvement in my condition."

Amy H.

"I strongly recommend Dr. Mims, a top physiotherapist with an amazing personality. I have been treated by her in the past year and a half and Dr. Mims has a significant role in making my life less painful. She is professional, I completely trust her, and I always feel much better after our sessions. Dr. Mims has been treating my injured tailbone, my knees, and jaw (from being problematic after past surgeries) and she is always up to date with new and helpful exercises."

"I've been in and out of physical therapy for 17 years. As a ballet dancer it was always extremely frustrating having therapists either not willing to see beyond what a "textbook" body should be, or not willing to treat multiple problems at once. I tried Brittney at a point when I was ready to give up on physical therapy and accept that I would just always be with some level of pain in my day to day life. Brittney's hour long sessions were a game changer for me. She doesn't try to rush through a session, she takes her time to listen to your concerns and doesn't just focus on one issue. Her mindset that everything in the body is connected is an extremely necessary approach for someone like me who has had years of untreated issues that just keep piling up and adding to further injuries. She is very open to not just doing something because it worked for someone else. Rather she takes your unique anatomy and problems into consideration for every session. When she is in a session with you she is 100% focused on you and not just charting looking away from you at a computer screen. I would highly recommend Brittney not only as a physical therapist for when you are injured, but as someone who can help with strengthening to prevent injuries as well. If I would have had Brittney earlier on in my ballet training, I could have prevented so many injuries."

"Dr. Brittney Mims has been a lifesaver to me. Injuries I didn't think I'd recover from or would get better from PT have completely healed, helped, and strengthened by Dr. Mims. I walked with a limp before I met her and she was confident she could help me, and she did and still does. My job involves a lot of physical wear and tear and Dr. Mims has not only address all my injuries but I learned so much about preventing future injuries. She has literally saved my career."

"I always assumed that PT was for when you got injured - not true! While Brittney did help address some nagging hip issues related to an old ballet injury, the majority of our sessions in the past year have focused on injury prevention and strength building. Brittney was able to target specific weakness with a holistic approach, which has drastically improved my balance and standing leg stability in ballet. As an amatuer runner, my stride was analyzed and Brittney provided me with techniques to prevent the knee soreness I would sometimes experience after a long run. I also used to get tension headaches somewhat frequently, but through massage and strengthening exercises with Brittney, my headaches are now incredibly rare. Beyond these tangible results, Brittney's professionalism, personality, and dedication have made our sessions both fun and productive. Her genuine care for her clients is obvious, and she goes above and beyond to check-in and involve my feedback. I recommend Brittney to everyone, especially dancers and runners!"

"I have been seeing Brittney for years, to treat a mixed connective tissue disease in my knee. I never knew physical therapy could be so much fun! We not only work on my knee, but also add in Pilates, manual work, and she helps with whatever pain I have that day. I leave her beautiful space feeling 100 times better in my body and mind. I never thought I could do the things we do together on the Pilates reformer, and after every session I feel rejuvenated and completely aligned. I always look forward to seeing her smiling face, and I can trust her to make me feel great! Can't wait for our next session!"
