Get started with Motion through our app

We’re now welcoming new members at our San Francisco clinic, right in SoMa.

Sample in-app messaging conversation between Motion Care Advocate and sample member, Julia Motion: 'Hi Julia, welcome to Motion! How can we help you today? Would you like to schedule an appointment?' Julia: 'Yes, that would be great.' Motion: 'To better match you to one of our clinicians, can you give us a little more information?' Motion sends Julia a link: 'Tell us about your issue or injury'

About me

I believe movement is medicine. As a chiropractor, I enjoy partnering with patients and educating them about their bodies, tailoring treatments to the individual — whether they are endurance athletes or experiencing day to day pain. When I treat athletes, I look at their care through a performance lens and I enjoy the challenge of overuse and chronic injuries. I love helping people get back to the things they care about.

Special interests

My special interest include treating sports injuries, lower back injuries, and injuries of the lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle and foot).

How I move

When I’m not busy at Motion, you’ll find me on my bike cycling around Mt. Tam and Marin County. I also love trail running, skiing, and any other activities that get me outside.
