What we stand for

Our goal is to help you achieve optimal lifelong physical health. This philosophy of care is encapsulated in our clinical approach, Results4Life® ; helping you achieve lasting results.

Sustainable results allow you to enjoy living life without having to holding back with the endless threat of injury reoccurrence. Reaching your chosen health destination is much easier when you’re enjoying the journey. Therefore, we do our best to provide a great experience that is both informative and engaging.

Back In Motion offers a range of Allied Health services designed to meet your needs including Physiotherapy, Massage, Clinical Exercise and many more.

Lifetime clients

All of our staff are committed to building sincere rapport and lifetime relationships with you when you visit any of our practices. We’ll focus not only on resolving your health and fitness issues today, but rather educating, treating and preparing you for tomorrow and beyond.

Holistic and integrated solution

Back In Motion Health Group physios will devise holistic treatment programs which integrate a number of interventions offering you long-term results.

We put an emphasis on exploring the broad picture of your needs allowing us to offer you a number of strategies to manage any range of concerns you may have during the delivery of our services.

We’ll use this approach, considering your physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs, making appropriate referrals to other professionals as required.

Sustainable results

You can be assured that our services will be delivered efficiently and ethically. As a condition of employment, our physiotherapists are required to be full members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), thus binding them to the APA's position on ethical guidelines and professional code of conduct.

The APA exists to improve the health of Australians by supporting world's best practice physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is a holistic approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and therapeutic management of disorders of human movement to enhance the health and welfare of the community.

More than physiotherapy

We can offer you more than physiotherapy – depending on your circumstances, your treatment plan might include massage, Clinical Exercise, and personal training.

The core of our approach is the part about you, and achieving the outcome that you desire.

We continue to have lifelong, loyal clients that occasionally still need us. For instance, to tape their ankle so it holds up for the following week’s footy final, provide an amazing massage to de-stress or relax aching muscles after work or play and even help parents fit kids’ school bags before the school term to avoid postural issues as they grow.

You’d be amazed at some of the things your Back In Motion physiotherapist can help you with, make sure you ask during your next visit!

Where We Started

History of Back In Motion Health Group

A simple philosophy

Back In Motion Health Group first emerged as a concept or desire to offer clients:

  • Holistic solutions;
  • Sustainable outcomes;
  • Genuine and ongoing after-care.

Encapsulated in relating to people with prestige and dignity. This philosophy of health care as unique in comparison to the more traditional models of physiotherapy at the time.

From a humble practice in Wantirna, Victoria

Back In Motion was launched as a small practice in the home of founders Jason and Paulina Smith in September 1999. Their early success resulted in quick growth and by April 2000 they had moved the practice from their home into more suitable commercial medical facilities. An expert and committed team soon gathered around Jason and Paulina as they focused on emerging as one of the choice physiotherapy providers and employers in the industry.

Pursuing the dream

In 2006, Back In Motion embarked on a major growth phase which continues to this day. From seven practices in early 2006 to more than 100 locations across Australia in 2017, the future is bright and exciting.

We have now established a unique health group of physiotherapy and wellness practices fuelled by a passionate vision to build a leading physiotherapy brand delivering optimal lifelong physical health to all Australians. 


Unique clinical approach for lifelong optimal physical health

A “quick-fix” for your pain or injury might sound good, but over time is proven to be inconvenient, costly and ineffective in comparison to taking preventative measures.

The swift management of your pain and symptoms is only the first step we take to help you achieve lasting results. Our Results4Life® approach ensures you can enjoy a healthy, injury-free lifestyle without that lingering threat of injury re-occurrence.

Tailored Results4Life® Roadmap

Whether your goals are focussed on rehabilitation, fitness, performance or lifestyle, your Back In Motion physiotherapist will work with you to create a tailored roadmap to achieve them.

By using a defined path which measures progress, you and your physiotherapist are always on the same page because of this structured approach. Your physio will also equip and empower you with the tools and techniques to self-progress outside of the consulting room.

How Results4Life® offers flexibility and choice

A tailored Results4Life® Roadmap for injury rehabilitation starts at pain and symptom management, moves to identification and treatment of underlying causes, before transitioning to a strengthening, fitness and lifestyle focus.

In other words, during a single treatment cycle, the Results4Life® approach addresses the three key areas that are fundamental to lasting recovery from not only injury or pain-relief but treatment and prevention of injury re-occurrence.

Our physios are also able to harness the benefits of multiple treatment methods including clinical Clinical Exercise, deep tissue massage, body vibration therapy, as well as hands on physiotherapy.

Comparing philosophies of care

This graph demonstrates a tailored treatment plan. You’ll notice that “quick-fixes” result in a pattern of re-occurrence, whereas Results4Life™ produces more sustainable results. Ask your physio how Results4Life® can help you in achieving optimal lifelong physical health.
