I recognize I had a choice in my PT provider and have consistently chosen Therapy in Motion. They successfully rehabilitated my shoulder, knee and now my fused low back. I have great respect for the folks that work at Therapy in Motion. They are not a “cookie cutter outfit” because they provide individualized hands on care. They get to know you personally and embrace you as a welcomed member into their family. They have improved my range of motion, strength, flexibility and even my posture. I actually look forward to my physical therapy visits. We had so much fun and shared a lot of laughs in their personal, yet professional atmosphere. I am especially a huge fan of “dry needling”. It is the third best thing I have ever felt.
Chris Vinson – Marathon Runner
I had been preparing for upcoming marathons for many months and unfortunately I tore my right hamstring after I completed the 2015 OKC Memorial Marathon in April. I had a goal of wanting to run the Chicago Marathon which was in October of the same year. Despite vigorous stretching and exercising at home, I continued to limp and was unable to completely, successfully stride and complete any increased mileage without hurting my hamstring. I went to Therapy In Motion and the talented therapists provided great hands on care. I received dry needling, cupping, gua sha therapy, kinesio taping, myofascial release, and a wide variety of comprehensive and individually prescribed therapeutic exercises. In addition, they performed a slow motion treadmill analysis which revealed severe biomechanical problems. After completing a few short weeks of physical therapy I was able to return to pain-free running and successfully completed the Chicago Marathon. I truly believe in Therapy In Motion and have referred six of my friends for treatment. They have all been extremely happy with their care and great results.

Chapman McKown – Wrestler
Therapy In Motion congratulates our patient, Chapman McKown. This outstanding 12 year old was recently named the Greco National Wrestling Champion in Wisconsin and was runner up in freestyle. No one even scored a point on him in Greco. Chapman will be a sixth grader at Whittier middle school next year. His other past accomplishments are that he is nationally undefeated in Greco. He also plays football and baseball and is a 4.0 student. His dream and goal is to participate in the Olympics.
Chapman suffered a rupture of his left deltoid and as a result, had to compensate by stressing different muscles. Chapman says, “ I really liked the dry needling” and couldn’t wait to tell his friends that he let his physical therapist stick needles in him. He credits Cindy Merrick as his reason for wrestling pain-free and winning his national titles.
With a history of spinal pain for over 40 years, I have seen many different healthcare providers and have received numerous medications and injections. Despite these attempts, I received no permanent relief and continued to suffer. The constant pain was debilitating and affecting the quality of my life. I thought I was going to have to live the rest of my life in agony.
When I was referred to Therapy In Motion, I was skeptical that they could help me. However, to my surprise and delight, their highly trained and skilled manual therapists have provided the excellent care that I needed to improve the quality of my life.

Now I am more flexible and stronger. I have lost 10 pounds and I do not have constant pain, if any pain. Therapy In Motion has a wonderful loving, compassionate, and knowledgeable staff. The whole team seems to work in a unified manner and has a dedicated interest to improve the physical and emotional condition of their patients. I am truly grateful for their care. I have lost my fear of having a miserable future and look forward to being active in upcoming years. My results were nothing short of a miracle.
“On November 11, 2015, I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident which left me with a dislocated shoulder and elbow. I also fractured my pelvis and hip and was in a wheelchair for 3 months. I was not referred to Therapy in Motion by anyone. After a brief internet search, I settled on Therapy in Motion. My choice was based on the website; they posted their earned awards and the Testimonials featured all age ranges and ethnicities. Sally, the secretary, was extremely polite and helpful and Dr. Robert Barbour was very thorough in his exam and very knowledgeable in the art of physical therapy. Since my initial visit, my improvement has steadily increased along with my strength. Since starting at Therapy in Motion, the staff helped me regain my pre-accident mobility. Every staff member of TIM was dedicated to helping me get better and provided excellent care in a fun, yet professional environment. The staff is qualified and knowledgeable and worked closely with me to help regain my function.
Therapy in Motion is the best!”
