Our Story

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

10 years ago, while employed at Saint Luke’s Hospital, I met a patient that would change my life. She was a client who had suffered chronic low back pain and after many failed treatments and no resolution in sight, she confided in me to help resolve her symptoms. Over the next several weeks we worked closely and accomplished her goals 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 at Body in Motion 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, we would continue to change many lives. Through our strong referral base, 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, easy, 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 under one roof. Owned and operated by Sushma Patel, PT, MTC, Body in Motion provides a hands-on friendly environment with state-of-the-art equipment helping patients live a pain-free active life.
