A better way to indulge...

You might have heard that collagen is an important building block for our bodies including skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints; but did you know that our bodies cannot synthesize enough collagen on their own to aid this building block? It is also impossible to count on our diets to fill this void because most of the processed food we eat today has been stripped of this vital component. Fortunately, we have a product that believes in sustainable practices that produce the highest quality nutrition products all based around collagen.

"Feed Me!" - your muscles

We all know, to some degree, the importance of eating a balanced, healthy diet. What we don't always realize is how the food we ingest is put to work internally. Without making you yawn with scientific details about how food is digested, let's just skip to the basics. Glygogen is a form of glucose that serves as energy storage and is the body's predominant source of energy during moderate to high-intensity exertion. The main thing you need to know?

Cool tattoo!

Contrary to popular belief, we didn't just pick this tape for the designs. At Body in Motion we use Dynamic Tape because it truly is the best functional tape on the market. The tape itself is made up of a stretchy blend of lycra and nylon, compared with that of traditional kinesiology tapes that are primarily made of cotton. These materials allow for a 4-way stretch in all directions instead of only two. Dynamic Tape can also stretch to 200% of its resting length and has many times the resistance and recoil of traditional K-tape products.

Fortunately for the patients at Body In Motion; however, we utilize a therapy known as Active Release Technique (ART) that helps us quickly and effectively treat these conditions and get you back in action with minimal down time.

What's with all the tools?

If you've been to a chiropractor who does a lot of soft tissue work, you might have noticed a tray of oddly shaped instruments made of either metal or bone lying around. Have you ever wondered what those crazy looking things are for? At Body in Motion we utilize a set of tools for a treatment technique called Graston. The Graston Technique, combined with the principles taught in the FAKTR Method help us treat soft tissue disorders like plantar fasciitis, IT-Band Syndrome, shin splints and many more.

Advanced Muscle Integration Technique

Our main goal at Body In Motion is to have your leave our office feeling and moving better than when you arrived; however, as much as we rely on the power of the chiropractic adjustment, we are well aware that to provide complete and efficient care for every patient, we need more than that in our arsenal. One of the tools that we use quite a bit is called Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, or AMIT.  This method helps us identify muscular instabilities in your body that could potentially lead to injury.

Resolutions: Realistic and Achievable

With each new year, people everywhere make resolutions: loose some weight, meditate more, become a better cook, read more books. What do each of these resolutions have in common? Each one is unquantifiable. None of them include the most important part - steps or measures we can take to achieve them. By creating resolutions that are both quantifiable and schedule-bound, we are able to set ourselves up for success instead of failure.

Healthy Fall Favorites

One of the best parts of the fall season are the flavors that come along with it. Pumpkin spice, apple pie, pecan topping, butternut squash soup; so many comfort foods come to mind with this cooler weather. Just because the days are getting shorter and cooler, though, doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your diet and protein intake! Many fall foods can incorporate some of the Vital Proteins products that Body In Motion now carries.
