Our History

In Motion Therapy was founded in 1994 as In Motion Hand Therapy by Gary Krabbe OT, CHT. As his business grew Gary began to recognize the need for a broader range of specialty therapy services in Montrose, CO. He put his plans in motion and from 2006 to 2011 In Motion Therapy gained an additional 7,000 square feet, an indoor heated therapy pool and a specialized sports rehabilitation area. In 2018 IMT’s founder Gary Krabbe passed away. But not before he took his own advice to “live a legacy”. His vision is forever captured in the establishment and ongoing operations of IMT. In late 2018, In Motion Therapy was purchased by Krabbe’s friends, Martin and Lori Lutz, with the intent to continue as an independent private practice, focused on the provision of the highest quality therapy services.

Public outreach and active participation in our community has always been a key feature of the In Motion Therapy business model and is evident in the In Motion Engaged program focus.  Employees of IMT are encouraged to volunteer for community service projects and currently represent Montrose on three community Board of Directors. In Motion Therapy is also a teaching clinic. During the school year, In Motion Therapy hosts many students from the Montrose High School career options seminar program, promoting career development and helping students explore career options. IMT hosts many Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy doctorate and assistant students as a clinical location for schools all over the country. In Motion is also the yearly host for sports physicals where local healthcare practitioners volunteer to give the most comprehensive physicals. 100% of the proceeds are donated to the HS sports medicine programs.  IMT’s annual Orthopedic Symposium supports the continuing education of local therapists keeping the bar high for quality care.

Today, In Motion Therapy is 95 percent doctor referral based. It offers full-range physical therapy and rehabilitation services, including aquatic therapy and Dry Needling. Patients of all ages are welcomed from all over the Uncompahgre Valley, as well as from Telluride and Grand Junction.
