Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical Pilates, and exercise and rehab to Alphington and surrounding suburbs. We have one-on-one and semi-private classes and because our services are delivered by physiotherapists you can claim them on private health insurance with extras cover.

Why we're different

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. Our unique clinical approach, Results4Life, keeps you on track towards optimal lifelong physical health.

Our guarantee

We are committed to your satisfaction and delivering the very best in physiotherapy care, customer service and outcomes. If you are not 100% satisfied with your experience at Back In Motion, we will refund your money and deliver your next session free.

Our Service Offering

done Physiotherapy

Whether you have back pain, neck pain, flexibility or mobility issues, we can help. We work in partnership with you and take a holistic view of your health to help you achieve lasting results and help get you back to doing what you love.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research and physio equipment to develop a personal treatment plan to help you improve flexibility, mobility and strength.

done Clinical Pilates

Our clinical pilates and reformer pilates classes are taught by qualified physiotherapists and tailored to your needs. This helps to ensure you achieve faster clinical results and minimise the risk of re-injury. We use a combination of pilates equipment, including reformers, trapeze tables and floor-based exercises.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research in the development of your personalised clinical pilates plan to help you improve flexibility, mobility, and strength.

done Massage

We know your body and can identify the causes of aches, pains, and soreness, ensuring a better result every time. A massage conducted by our physios will see a reduction in your aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury or the stresses and strains of everyday life.

We offer a range of massage therapy services – including remedial massage, sports therapy massage and deep tissue massage – so you can benefit from qualified physiotherapy staff and their extensive knowledge of the human body and anatomy.

done Exercise and Rehab

Whether you have lower back pain, neck pain or a shoulder injury, exercise rehabilitation can help. Our exercise programs can help with increasing fitness, weight loss, injury rehabilitation, endurance training or strengthening, in a safe way that minimises risk of injury.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research and physio equipment to develop a personal exercise plan to help you improve flexibility, mobility, and strength.

done Vibration Therapy

We offer side-alternating, high frequency vibration therapy using a vibration platform. You can experience results not only as treatment for an existing health concern but as a preventative measure for a diverse range of health issues including back pain, falls prevention, core strength, and elite performance.

done Women’s Health

We provide effective, tailored programs to support women during all stages of their lives. Talk to us about pregnancy and post-natal care, fitness and exercise classes; pelvic floor physiotherapy, pain and incontinence; and musculoskeletal conditions.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research and physio equipment to help you improve the quality of your life, mobility and strength.

done Dry needling

Whether you have back pain, neck pain or other musculoskeletal injuries, dry needling with acupuncture needles can be an effective part of your treatment plan.

Dry needling can help reduce muscle tension and pain levels and trigger a healing response in injured tissues within the body. As opposed to acupuncture, dry needling works directly on the injured body part, not meridian or energy flows.

done Aged Care Physiotherapy

We provide a range of physiotherapy services for seniors and residencies in the community. We support aged care facilities, supported residential services, and retirement villages. We can also visit clients in the privacy of their own home.

done Custom Orthotics

When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk can cause a chain reaction that alters your posture and movement mechanics. The symptom of poor foot mechanics can include localised foot pain, bunions, arch or heel pain, leg or knee pain, hip or back pain – and even neck pain. Custom orthotics have been shown to correct these issues, giving you improved balance, posture, and general wellbeing.
