Dr. Stephens is an Airforce brat and lifelong dancer. She has been a practicing sports chiropractor in the Bay Area since 2010 and has worked her entire career in interdisciplinary settings. Both in private clinics and in hospitals, Lindsay has assisted surgeries and outpatient procedures; she’s also logged hundreds of hours in orthopedics, neurology, pain management, radiology, and OB/GYN departments. In August of 2016, she opened Motus Wellfulness Clinic after recognizing the need for a more compassionate integrative healthcare clinic. She enjoys working with patients at every stage of healing, always with the mission of empowering those in her care with the knowledge they need to affect long-term changes in their lives.
To phrase this simply, it has been life changing for me. It had been 2 years and a half that I had back pain every single day. The pain was ruining my life, I have tried countless other professionals with different specialties during these years and none could move the needle. After a month in, not much had changed, She adjusted a bit the treatment along with the PT onsite and BOOM! The magic happened! I had no more back pain 2 weeks after. I can't express how happy I am about this. Lindsay literally allowed me to get my life back.
This review is very long overdue. Motus clinic is AMAZING. They are true professionals who will give you thorough and personalized attention while also being friendly and approachable. They are reasonable in their diagnosis and aren't salesy or forceful about trying to get you to come in more than needed. Since coming to Motus, I've learned how to improve my running form efficiency and be well intune with my body to prevent injury and stay healthy. I came in September 2016 because I had a persistent nagging right side glute/hamstring injury and I didn't really knew what to do about.
I came in with unexplained calf problems after a season of fairly heavy running and Lindsey worked with me to define the problem, worked on mobility and recuperation, and over the course of 2-3 months not only solved my issues and got me running again but also set me up to build strength for the long term. I'm a faster, happier and healthier runner as a result. Hard to express how big of an impact Motus had on me. Whenever I hear a colleague talking about an ache or pain while running, I refer them here.
I had been going to physical therapy at different places on and off for 10 years. When I found Lindsay she was able to help diagnose the root of the problem, and fix that, NOT just the symptoms (which is what all the other places did). I am SO happy seeing her and I’m doing much better than before and only getting better! I would HIGHLY recommend Lindsay to anyone that need physical therapy and have already referred some of my friends! :)
Injured or in pain? Let us help you!
Motus Wellfulness Clinic is an out-of-network clinic that works with an upfront payment model. As clinicians passionate about providing the highest level of care, we’ve made the purposeful decision not to participate with health insurance programs. Doing so would make it exponentially more challenging for us to serve you; this is due to administrative overhead costs and claims processing times, along with the exhaustive disadvantages to a volume-based care model. Our goal is transparency: with us, what you see is what you get. If you have chiropractic and/or physical therapy insurance coverage, you can possibly receive reimbursement for your rehabilitation. We also accept Medical Reimbursement Account (MRA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), and Health Savings Account (HSA) funds as methods of payment.
During this initial session, we take a complete history, perform a detailed physical exam, and assess specific functioning based on your present condition. From there we design a customized integrated therapeutic program for you.
These sessions are 40 minutes long and focus on assessing improvement and refining your therapeutic program. This includes exercise progression, reviewing diagnostic studies, and considering additional treatment options. Video visits are also offered for intermittent check-ins when coming to the office isn’t possible.
