Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical Pilates, and exercise and rehab to Bayswater 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

Quick-fixes or shortcuts are not something we strive for during your consultation. The swift management of your pain and symptoms is only the first step our team will take to help you achieve lasting results.

We believe in getting the right result the first time so you can get back to what you love without the threat of re-injury.

Our focus is not only on offering talented physiotherapists, but also delivering a great physiotherapy experience.

You will be surprised at all the physical health benefits that come with sticking to your personal treatment plan including improved flexibility, mobility and strength.

done Massage

When you get a massage from a physiotherapist you are benefiting from four plus years of dedicated university study on the human body. 

Sporting clubs, athletes, and massage devotees see our expert physios and therapists for a reason: because 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.

done Clinical Pilates

We offer individual and small group clinical Pilates classes taught by qualified professionals and physiotherapists. Unlike group classes at a gym, our approach to Pilates is clinically proven and specifically tailored to your needs. These tailored exercises target problem areas ensuring greater results and minimising the risk of injury re-aggravation.

You will use a combination of specialised Pilates equipment including reformers and trapeze table complimented by floor-based exercises depending on your needs. This brings about better targeting and resistance as you progress in your Pilates program.

done Exercise and Rehab

Whether you’re looking to increase your fitness or get back into exercise after time off or injury, an exercise and rehabilitation session will get you off to a good start. 

Our physiotherapists can design programs to cater to your every need including weight loss, injury rehabilitation, fitness and endurance training as well as strengthening and toning.

Your physio knows your body and has the scientific and clinical knowledge to ensure your workout is both safe and caters to your abilities and previous injury history.

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.

done GaitScan® Assessment

Back In Motion’s scientific GaitScan® assessment technology allows your physio to closely analyse your foot mechanics. This is done by measuring timing sequences, mapping foot pressure and providing an in-depth visual report that you can take home.

Using GaitScan®, your Back In Motion physiotherapist can then determine whether faulty foot function is the cause of your discomfort and whether custom orthotics will benefit you. If so, the results of your assessment are used to create custom orthotics moulded and manufactured specifically for your needs.

done Dry needling

Treating musculoskeletal injuries with acupuncture needles can be an effective form of treatment helping to reduce muscle tension, decrease pain levels, and trigger a healing response in injured tissues when the body has ceased healing. As opposed to acupuncture, dry needling works directly on the injured body part, not meridian or energy flows.

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 weakness, pain and incontinence; and musculoskeletal conditions.

done Men’s Health

Men have pelvic floors and bladders too! Whilst they don’t carry and give birth to babies, men can suffer a range of issues from pelvic floor deficiency following prostate surgery and also lower back pain. Our physios can address these issues with appropriate assessment and exercise prescription.

done Continence Physiotherapy

Continence and pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specific field of physiotherapy. The focus is on the treatment of pelvic floor related disorders like incontinence and prolapse by restoring muscle function to the pelvic floor. Back In Motion offers discrete treatment for both women and men.

done Pilates In Motion

Pilates In Motion is an advanced clinical Pilates class guided by a physiotherapist. Once you have progressed from individual and semi-private Pilates, you’ll be able to join Pilates In Motion classes allowing you to develop your practice and challenge your body.

done Semi-Private Pilates

Once you have completed a prescribed series of one-on-one Pilates sessions, your physio may recommend you commence semi-private Pilates classes. These classes take a maximum of four participants. You'll receive guidance and attention from the physiotherapist instructing the class in accordance with your individual Pilates program. Your program may include a combination of mat and reformer work.

done Vibration Therapy

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