Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical Pilates, and exercise and rehab to Bribie Island 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, our physios at Back In Motion can help resolve your pain and improve the quality of your life. 

Find out why physiotherapy is a GP's most recommended health professional today.

What can Back In Motion physio do for me?

We'll use the latest clinical research and physio equipment to develop a personal treatment plan to help you recover for your specific condition.

You don’t need a GP's referral to see a physio, and often we'll work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for your specific condition or injury.

How will a Back In Motion physio assess my injury?

We'll assess your condition to diagnose the problem and focus on how to help you heal with tangible tools like Results4Life®

What sort of treatments do Back In Motion physios use?

Treatments include massage/soft tissue mobilisation, muscle re-education, exercises, acupuncture, dry needling and crutches/wheelchairs if necessary.

What else does Back In Motion offer? 

We’re a one-stop shop for allied health, and also offer related health services such as clinical/reformer Pilates, remedial massage, exercise rehab and more.

We work in partnership with you to identify how we can resolve your pain and condition, and then how to heal you and get you stronger to ensure it does not happen again. 

done Clinical Pilates

Whether you’re wanting to improve your flexibility, core strength or your posture, Back In Motion offers clinical Pilates and reformer Pilates taught by qualified physios.

Many gyms and exercise studios offer pilates these days, but few places offer personalised and tailored programs to help you recover, achieve your goals sooner and help stay injury-free.

Why should I do Clinical Pilates/Pilates Reformer at Back In Motion?

Our physios have completed formal Pilates training, and supervise you during class to offer you a safe and effective program.

When you do Pilates with us, you’re in a smaller class with an individual program designed just for you – so you’ll progress faster and are less likely to get injured.

What equipment is available at Back In Motion?

We offer a range of specialised Pilates equipment, including reformers, trapeze tables and floor-based exercises to help you progress and achieve your health and fitness goals.

Who will benefit the most out of Clinical Pilates/Pilates Reformer?

Pilates can benefit everyone – from the elite athlete wanting to improve their core strength, to a beginner seeking to improve their flexibility and muscle strength.

We recommend all of our Back In Motion clients try Pilates at least once. Once you see the results and feel the benefits, you'll be hooked!

What are the health benefits of Clinical Pilates/Pilates Reformer?

The health benefits of Pilates include improved flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, core stability, improved balance, spine stabilisation and improved posture.

done Remedial massage

Whether you’re wanting to loosen tight muscles, soothe your body or simply relax, Back In Motion offers a range of massage services including remedial massage, sports therapy massage, deep tissue massage and myotherapy.

There are many places that offer massage these days, but few offer highly-qualified and trained physios with extensive knowledge of the human body to help your body heal.

Why should I have a remedial massage at Back In Motion?

We take a tailored approach, targeting key areas of your body chosen by you and your physio and it’ll be completed in a safe and professional environment.

Our highly-experienced physios have spent more than four years at university learning about human anatomy and biomechanics. We know your body and can identify the causes of aches, pains and soreness, ensuring a better result every time.

What remedial massage services are offered at Back In Motion?

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

What are the benefits of regular remedial massage?

Massage is beneficial to the body in many ways, both physically (tissue manipulation) and emotionally (relaxation). 

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.

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 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 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 DEXA Body Scanning

DEXA is an advanced medical scanning technology that provides a safe way to precisely measure body composition - specifically bone, fat and lean muscle mass. This information can then be used to set realistic health and wellbeing goals. The DEXA can also be used to diagnose osteoporosis and is effective for tracking the progression of any treatment and rehabilitation.  The scan itself takes six minutes and is painless and non-invasive.

done Podiatry

Whether you have plantar fasciitis, an ingrown toenail, bunion or problems with your gait, we can help.

Our podiatrist is trained to assess, diagnose and treat foot and lower limb problems to help you look after your feet, improve your posture or help you to manage foot complications related to medical conditions such as diabetes.

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 Shockwave Therapy

Whether you have plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow or an injury that won’t heal, shockwave therapy can help.

Back In Motion offers a free initial assessment that is obligation free – so if you do not decide to go ahead, then there is no cost for that assessment.

Shockwave therapy – also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) – is a non-invasive therapy that uses low-frequency, acoustic shockwaves generated via a handheld device that kick starts the body’s natural healing response in tissue that may not have responded to medication, rest or other therapies.  

If you have tried rest, medications, other therapies or even steroid injections to overcome the  injury, and are now considering surgery, then Shockwave Therapy could be a good option for you.

Up to 92% of patients report significant improvement in their tendon pain after a course of shockwave therapy.

done Bodyflow Therapy

Bodyflow Therapy is a new and exciting electrotherapy designed to speed up the removal of swelling in the body. Endorsed and used by orthopedic surgeons and some of the biggest professional sporting organisations around the world, Bodyflow technology offers clients an exclusive opportunity to fasten their recovery when compared with other modalities and treatment. Bodyflow may also help when used on post-surgery swelling and serious sprains and strains to significantly reduce recovery and healing time. Bodyflow Therapy treatment is offered within our practice via a lager machine or a smaller take home machine which is available for hire from the practice. The rental of a portable device allows clients to continue their recovery in between physio visits in the comfort of their own home.

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 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 customer orthotics moulded and manufactured specifically for your needs.

done Aquatic Physiotherapy

Our hydrotherapy classes are ideal if you are going through injury rehabilitation or if you have long-term injuries. Our physios will guide you through gentle group and individually-tailored water-based exercises in the water with buoyancy devices as needed.

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.

Coming from a military family background he moved around a lot as a kid and lived in 3 different countries by the time he was 10 years old. This brought about a love for exploring new places and cultures.

Growing up loving sports led him to wanting to have a career in a sports based profession as well as looking for a job in aiding others.

This brought podiatry to his attention, with a particular interest in how the foot functions during sports and walking.

The University of Salford in Manchester had the most up to date technologies in gait analysis so that’s where his future lied. This also allowed him to work closely with the two soccer teams in the city MUFC and MCFC. 

After completing his degree he moved to London to work in the national health system to gain some experience and then went into private practise.

Before he got too settled in his life he strove for a new adventure which brought him here at Back in Motion, Australia.

He chose Back in Motion due to its client centred approach to treatments as well as having the opportunity to work within a multi-disciplinary team along with Physiotherapist’s and exercises physiologists.

He is particularly passionate about patient care and wellbeing, which makes for a very thorough treatment as well as been a friendly face you can confide in, as long as you don’t mind the accent.

Outside of the work place he enjoys playing soccer in the Brisbane league, as well as climbing a couple times a week. You may spot him exploring the local area bush walking, diving into rock pools or attempting to surf.
