Our Story

Our Story

Since 1993, Back in Motion has been dedicated to helping people improve their health, reach their full employment potential and live a fulfilling and purposeful life.

Born out of the motivation to make a real difference in the lives of others, Back in Motion was the first private organization in BC to specialize in the rehabilitation of individuals with chronic back pain, to help them get back to work. Back in Motion’s five founders used their combined expertise in clinical psychology, physiotherapy, and business to help a Richmond man start anew, after being told he would never return to his career in logging. This founding success defined Back in Motion’s purpose to help people improve their health, enhance their opportunities, and live better lives.

Today, Back in Motion has evolved to deliver flexible and accessible health and employment services that recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. Known for our creative solutions and exceptional results, we ensure the needs of our clients are met, and expectations are exceeded. We help people work, and live happy, healthy lives.

Our team of dedicated professionals serve over 13,000 people annually at 15 convenient locations across Metro Vancouver and Victoria, all of which are fully accessible and barrier-free.
