Born in Rochester, New York Dr. Sean P. Konrad left home at the age of seventeen for service in the United States Navy. For eight years he served with various Seabee units as an equipment operator until deciding to leave the Navy in 1996. He continued to work as an equipment operator within the civilian sector and subsequently injured himself on a job in 2003. At the urging of his cousin, a massage therapy student, he sought the care of a chiropractor who, after three months of treatment, was able to alleviate his pain making the need for medication non-existent!
This was a life changing experience for Dr. Konrad and with his GI Bill still available decided that he wanted to be able to provide others with this same type of opportunity. In 2004 he went back to school and after completing his undergraduate requirements enrolled in the Doctor of Chiropractic program at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) in Seneca Falls, New York.
During the internship phase of his training, Dr. Konrad had the opportunity to serve in the chiropractic clinics at several health care facilities in the area which include Monroe Community Hospital, the campus health center at St. John Fisher College, St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center, the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in Bath and Canandaigua as well as the Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic in Rochester. This diverse learning environment has given Dr. Konrad the ability to devise comprehensive treatment plans for a wide range of patient presentations.
His devotion to excellence led to being consecutively named to the Dean’s List at New York Chiropractic College. He also expanded upon his knowledge, skill, and ability by earning an Advanced Certificate in Whole Foods Nutrition, as well as becoming certified in NIMMO Receptor-Tonus Technique and as a Kinesio Taping Practitioner. Upon graduating from NYCC in November 2009, Dr. Konrad began his practice as an independant contractor renting space from an established chiropractor. He left that office in July 2010 to start a new venture.
Partnering with Dr. Cheyenne Fralick, they opened Life in Motion Chiropractic and Wellness in upstate New York where, in October 2013, they both achieved recognition as a Primary Spine Practitioners which enhanced the already exemplary primary spine care at Life in Motion Chiropractic and Wellness . In February of 2015 Dr. Fralick opened their new office at 205 Main St. in Ridgway, Pennsylvania where, upon closure of their New York office in August, Dr. Konrad joined her.
Dr. Konrad resides in Elk County with his three beautiful children Savahnah, Joshua, and Ella and believes he has the best job in the world providing the members of his community with affordable evidence based chiropractic care.
Products & Services
Chiropractic is an approach to health that focuses on the body as a whole. Doctors of Chiropractic treat conditions relating to bones and joints, nerves and muscles. Chiropractic's primary treatment method is called an adjustment or manipulation. Doctors of Chiropractic use their hands or equipment to apply a short quick thrust to a joint or joints. The thrust is carefully administered with the intent of improving joint and nerve function, reducing pain and speeding recovery. It may be used with other forms of treatment, depending on your specific needs.
The goal of treatment at Life in Motion Chiropractic and Wellness is to restore balance, flexibility, and control which instills self-efficacy and helps to keep your body moving naturally, feeling good, and aging well.

Dystocia is defined as a difficult labor, which is something that every woman wants to avoid. Aside from the pain and exhaustion caused by a long difficult labor, dystocia can lead to multiple medical interventions which may be physically and emotionally traumatic to you and your baby. Commonly reported reasons for dystocia are pelvic imbalance and its resulting effects on the uterus and the baby's position. Chiropractors certified in the Webster Technique are specifically trained to correct these imbalances.
Trigger Points explained with animation [Published on June 06, 2013] This first video is a short explanation and introduction to the trigger point. Many health and pain problems, like frozen shoulder, chronic neck stiffness and migraine are related to trigger points. People can learn how to effectively treat trigger points themselves. I hope to show you in this video that trigger points are a fact, not a theory.
The big question on every prospective patient's mind is, "So what's this going to cost?" At Life in Motion Chiropractic we believe that every new patient should be aware of his/her financial obligations prior to care being rendered. Our office participates with Highmark BC/BS and UPMC, so at the completion of each office visit your only obligation will be to render your plan's co-payment or fee for service (should you have an unmet deductible) and our office staff will take care of the rest. If you are unsure of your coverage for chiropractic care simply contact our office to discuss your plan.
