In Motion

In Motion’s focus on health, rehabilitation and injury prevention makes it the ideal sponsor of Bluewater Health Foundation’s Race for Health event. “We have been actively engaged in supporting a wide variety of community events in the past; however, the opportunity to commit ourselves to one event, one that ties in healthcare and activity, was too good to pass up,” says Dr. Luke Winegard. “Being the platinum sponsor of the Race for Health aligns with our mission and values at In Motion and allows us to give back to a wonderful cause. Brendan (co-founder Dr. Carney Kilian) and I are both runners, as are several of our team and a great many of our clients.”

The event, which promotes active living through running to support cardiac care for local residents, complements In Motion’s work with their clients to set and exceed their personal health and fitness goals and to improve their quality of life. “We are built to be In Motion – exercise really is the best medicine,” says Dr. Carney Kilian. “It is a natural fit for the proceeds of this event to support the great work done by the cardiac care team at Bluewater Health.” Dr. Winegard ran the 10km distance and several staff completed the 5 and 10km distances. Dr. Carney Kilian took a different role this year and volunteered on the course. A free 5km run clinic for clients of In Motion saw several participants gear up for the 5km race. This group ran three times per week from In Motion and had participants ranging from those learning to run to those looking to run a personal best time.

Drs. Carney Kilian and Winegard opened In Motion: Health – Wellness – Fitness in January 2007, to provide clients with the best possible treatment and rehabilitation options to keep them moving and to motivate them to live an active lifestyle. “We had prepared the business plan in our final year of school and upon graduation in June of 2006 we started taking steps to establish In Motion here in Sarnia,” says Dr. Carney Kilian. “It was a huge risk to open a large multidisciplinary clinic immediately out of school, but with hard work and good fortune the risk has paid off.” In Motion offers a variety of pain management, rehabilitation and injury prevention options to an array of clients. The team includes chiropractors, physiotherapists, registered massage therapists, kinesiologists, personal trainers, a chiropodist and a dietician. To learn more, visit the In Motion website.
