Our Story

Starting my own business had always been a dream,  but I never imagined the company would evolve from a chance encounter with a former patient.

While employed at Saint Luke’s Hospital ten years ago, I met a patient that would change my life. She was a client who had suffered from chronic low back pain. After many failed treatments with no resolution in sight, she confided in me to help resolve her symptoms. Over the next several weeks, we worked closely and accomplished her goal of living a fairly pain-free and productive life. For the first time in years, she was able to exercise and tolerate her daily activities without pain.

“Having suffered from chronic lower back pain for years, I was a bit skeptical when my physician suggested more physical therapy! Was I surprised! The “hands on” approach of Sushma Patel…has changed my life completely. I am doing things that I haven’t been able to do for years. And – she gave me realistic exercises to keep my back in shape. My doctor was right – she is a miracle worker!” – B.Ross

I was simply doing my “job”, but for her it meant so much more! A friendship evolved and I was soon renting space from my “former” patient under the name of Body in Motion, PC.

Over the next 10 years, the company would continue to change many lives. Through our strong referral base exhibiting a 95% retention rate of previous clients and our ever growing “word of mouth” referrals, Body in Motion, PC has evolved into a niche practice in the heart of Prairie Village, Kansas. Our 3500 square foot facility boasts state of the art equipment, ground level entry and a friendly staff that always aims to please.

Body in Motion is Kansas City’s only combined outpatient Physical Therapy (PT) clinic and PT guided exercise studio. We provide a hands-on, friendly environment that aims to help patients live a pain-free, active life.
