Therapy In Motion opens new clinic

NORMAN — Therapy In Motion, recipient of the 2014 Norman Transcript’s Best of the Best Physical Therapy Clinic award, opened a clinic June 2 at 334 12th Ave. SE.

Located next to an urgent care clinic, Therapy In Motion’s facility offers comprehensive, state of the art equipment and is open during the week and on Saturdays, if needed.

Owners Cindy Merrick and Dick Stewart, report that the continuous growth of their existing facilities prompted the need for an additional clinic in Norman. Merrick states, “With over 550 different referral sources, we have been blessed with a continuation of positive growth and happy patients.”

This new facility will improve the use of existing space in our current Norman clinic and parking lot. Therapy In Motion offers many specialty programs and specialized equipment that aren’t found in this part of Oklahoma. Established in 1992, Therapy In Motion is currently the largest physical therapy clinic in Norman.

Dr. Robert Barbour P.T., D.P.T., is the clinical director of Therapy in Motion’s new east Norman clinic. Dr. Barbour is a Norman native and graduated from Norman High School and the University of Oklahoma prior to pursuing his master’s degree in physical therapy at the University Of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. He furthered his education with a doctorate degree in physical therapy in 2012.

Barbour offers expertise and advanced manual therapy in orthopedics, spinal dysfunction, post-operative rehabilitation, workman compensation injuries, neurological disorders and vestibular and fall related conditions.

Last month, Gov. Mary Fallin signed HB 1020, which allows patients to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist for up to 30 days without a referral from a physician, beginning Nov. 1, 2014. The previous state law required a physician referral prior to treatment. Oklahoma was the 49th state to pass a law allowing some level of physical therapy treatment without a referral.
