Doctor Karim is originally from Coralville Iowa, and loves being a part of this area. In 2003 he graduated from West High School, then shortly after became an active member of the Coralville Fire Department, where he served 14 years as a volunteer firefighter before retiring in August of 2018. It was while earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa he realized his true passion was natural healthcare. He wanted to bring patients natural care and life changing experience under chiropractic care. This passion led him to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. He excelled as an active student and was nominated for the Clinical Excellence Award for his mastery of several chiropractic techniques, as well as his exceptional doctor/patient interaction. He graduated receiving his Doctorate in Chiropractic, and shortly after opened his own practice in North Liberty, Iowa.
Continuing education is extremely important to Dr. Karim. He takes pride in being board certified in Chronic Intractable pain and Neuropathy from the American College of Physical Medicine, which allows him to further help as many people as possible.
Dr. Karim strongly believes in overall health and the body’s ability to heal without the introduction of pharmaceuticals. He enjoys sports (Go Hawks!) and his regular workouts at Core Fitness, which his office is conveniently located next to. Family and Sport Chiropractic is also located close to his family, which is of the utmost importance to him.
Dr. Karim’s priority is and always will be helping people. He plans to achieve this goal consistently one patient at a time, by giving the best chiropractic care and patient service as possible. When you’re a part of his office, you are a part of his family and he thrives to serve surrounding communities in Iowa.
Tina Davis-Robinson recently moved from Clinton, Iowa to Cedar Rapids. She previously worked for 14 years as a cardiac telemetry technician. She is very eager to continue learning about the natural healing of the body with Dr. Karim and his team. Tina has 3 sons that frequently amuse her as they transition into adulthood. She highly values her faith family and friends. Keep smiling because you will always see hers at Family and Sport Chiropractic.
Aisha is our insurance and billing extraordinaire, with a degree in accounting and lengthy experience in finance. She also assists Dr. Karim whenever possible, and has become a patient favorite. Aisha's smile and personality are infectious, and she firmly believes in healing as a team. She never hesitates to help a patient struggling with their new natural lifestyle, and sees every day as one to help someone heal.

If you catch her outside of the office, it could be as a Thirty-One consultant, but will most likely be coaching her daughter's basketball team or attending one of her many soccer games. When she finds some free time, she spends it cooking and being with her family.
Angela is Dr. Karim's assistant in our neuropathy and knee pain clinic, as well as our practice representative. Chiropractic is deep rooted in her heart. Not only has she experienced relief from years of chronic pain in her neck and back, chiropractic care from Dr. Karim has led to a significant difference in the lives of her children, it also saved her son's life.
Due to unexplained seizure activity, Angela's daughter had been on adult seizure medication since the age of one. Nobody could quite put their finger on what was causing her condition. After a few short months of regular adjustments in her neck, Ashlyn has been seizure free and off medication, enjoying her seizure and medication free life.
Angela's oldest son Chandler came to Dr. Karim for routine sports care when he noticed some things about him that weren't considered 'normal' from a neurological standpoint. Before then, she had no reason to believe there was anything concerning about him, as he had always had these traits. He never missed a checkup with his pediatrician and had a sports physical every year; he was also a patient in Endocrinology at the University because of his large stature. Everyone agreed his clumsiness was due to being very large for his age. It was after Dr. Karim's insistence she get further testing it was discovered Chandler had an aggressive brain and spinal cord tumor that was suffocating his brain stem, and essentially crushing his spinal cord. Had it not been for Dr. Karim's attention and intuition, Chandler would have been gone within 4 months.
After taking almost a year off while her son recovered from a risky surgery, radiation, and physical therapy, Angela has returned to us, ready to tell the world what chiropractic has done for her and her family.
Her honesty, empathy, sense of humor and love of healing will touch you as much as it does us, whether it be during your appointment, through a lunch and learn, health fair, or a How to Stay Young seminar.
In her free time, Angela enjoys every second she gets to spend with her husband their 5 kids and 2 dogs, writing, playing Trivia Crack, doing yoga, and her ongoing work with other families who have had children diagnosed with a critical illness, along with her philanthropic work with the Make A Wish Foundation and children's cancer research. She is an active member of Life Church in Coralville, passionate about children's ministry and Servolution projects.
