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.

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

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 Clinical Exercise, 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. 

Clinical Exercise

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

Many gyms and exercise studios offer Clinical Exercise 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 Exercise & Pilates at Back In Motion?

Our qualified physios supervise you during class to offer you a safe and effective program.

When you do Clinical Exercise 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 Exercise & Pilates?

Clinical Exercise 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 Clinical Exercise at least once. Once you see the results and feel the benefits, you'll be hooked!

What are the health benefits of Clinical Exercise & Pilates?

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

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.

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 and deep tissue massage, 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). A regular massage can provide check ups with your physio, treat niggles, prevent new injuries/pain and help with maintenance.

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.

Shockwave Therapy

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

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.

Women’s Health

Women’s Health Physiotherapy is aimed at women at any time of their lives. Our women’s health physios are specially trained at post-graduate level, meaning you will receive the best possible assessment and treatment whatever your concern.

The following conditions are treated by a women’s health physio.

Pre and Post-natal care: any symptoms associated with being pregnant such as back and pelvic pain as well as exercise therapy for safe activity in pregnancy. After you have had your baby we recommend a 6 weeks check with the physiotherapist where they can assess your abdominal muscles, pelvic floor muscles and breathing. This is also the time we can start you back to exercise and get you back to what you love doing!

Urinary and Faecal Incontinence: any leakage from your bladder or bowel can often be treated very successfully with the support of physiotherapy. This may include bladder and bowel training, pelvic floor strengthening, constipation management as well as fluid and dietary advice.

Pelvic organ Prolapse: anyone diagnosed with any type of pelvic organ prolapse should seek the support of a specially trained physiotherapist. Treatment is aimed at managing symptoms in the optimal way as well as getting you back to moving and exercising without the fear of making prolapse any worse. If you are having surgery it is still advisable to have physiotherapy pre and post op to ensure you recover as well as possible.

Pelvic pain: this can be pain anywhere in your pelvis, lower back or hips. Often there is a strong correlation between muscle coordination and strength and the pelvic floor muscles or the abdominal wall. Physiotherapy can help give the correct treatment and exercises. Pelvic pain can also refer to painful intercourse or simply vaginal pain, this too is ideally assessed and treated by a women’s health physiotherapist.

Not all conditions are treated with pelvic floor rehabilitation and exercises and everyone is individually assessed and a treatment plan formulated for them. Our women’s health physiotherapist is passionate about both the health of women and men and believes that anyone can overcome their pelvic health issues with the correct guidance and treatment. We want to empower both men and women so that their incontinence, prolapse or pelvic pain isn’t something they have to suffer with.

Mums & Bubs

Our Mums & Bubs classes are the ideal way to get back to exercise safely and to recover after giving birth, whether it be your first bub or your third. The class runs for 40 minutes and is a circuit class using our Clinical Exercise reformer beds, cardio equipment, weights, the Clinical Exercise trapeze table and much more.

When can I attend?
Once your bub is 6 weeks old and your doctor has cleared you to start exercise again you are welcome to come along.

How do I get started?
Give our friendly reception team a call. We will first book you in for a 20 minute free assessment with our physiotherapist to determine your goals and exactly what you’d like to get out of the class. This allows us to slightly tailor your class experience to your needs. It also gives you time to meet the physio taking the class, check out our gym and find out a bit more about the class.

Do I bring my baby?
Bubs are welcome to come along but we’re also happy if you would prefer to leave them with a loved one or carer. We understand that babies may need to be fed, hugged or sleep before, during or after the class. We have plenty of rooms and a large reception area where you can feed or change nappies if you need. If your little one is upset during the class, don’t worry! Lots of our clients bring their children along to their appointments so we are very much used to the crying if it does happen. But hopefully with lots of different things to look at they’ll be quite happy playing on the floor whilst you exercise.

Unfortunately if your bub is old enough to move/crawl, they will need to either stay at home or stay in the pram for safety in the gym.

Mums In Motion

Prepare your body for the rigours of labour, improve your aerobic fitness, and reduce your recovery time in a fun, social atmosphere with other mums-to-be! Guided by your physio, this exercise class also includes education on back care, posture, and relaxation specific to pregnancy.

Pelvic Floor and 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

GLA:D - Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark

What is GLA:D?

This education and exercise program reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis (OA) research. It includes feedback from people with OA as well as what works in the real world to help manage OA symptoms.

GLA:D training consists of:

  • A first appointment explaining the program and collecting data on your current functional ability.
  • Two education sessions to teach you about OA, how the GLA:D exercises improve joint stability and how to retain this improved joint stability outside of the program.
  • Group neuromuscular training sessions twice a week for six weeks to improve muscle control of the joint which leads to reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life.
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.

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.

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.

TPI Certified Golf Physiotherapy

A TPI Certified Physiotherapist can not only assess and treat golf-related injuries but can also screen your golf swing to help prevent injury and help improve your golf game.

Rebecca respects the opportunity to work with people through their mental and physical challenges, as well as to reach their unique goals. Rebecca loves helping her clients achieve positive outcomes, and says that she is incredibly lucky to be able to carry out her day with a greater purpose than a ‘day job’. She jokes though that the ongoing knowledge and lesson sharing between her and her clients is always mutual.

Rebecca grew up on the Gold Coast herself. She graduated from A.B. Paterson college and Griffith University. She was granted the all-rounder excellence award for academic and sporting performance at both school and university, and graduated with first class honours.

Rebecca has had her fair share of injuries herself with some pretty significant leg surgeries following numerous sporting accidents. Testament to her most recent 6-year history playing American football. The long road to recovery was an excellent learning opportunity to put her in the shoes of her clients. Naturally, this has made her passionate about the rehabilitation process, and insists on a strong foundation of hands-on and active rehabilitation; ideally starting as soon as possible. 

Prior to her most recent period as a gridiron player, Rebecca has a background in Athletics, swimming, strength training and road cycling. For fun she loves pulling out the old roller blades, attempting to surf and going for hikes in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland.

Physiotherapist

Joseph was born and raised here on the Gold Coast, graduating from TSS just down the road! He moved over to New Zealand to complete his Physiotherapy qualification, studying at the University of Otago. As an adolescent Joseph was engulfed in a very active lifestyle here on the Gold Coast, immersing himself in a wide array of sports throughout school.

Over in New Zealand Joseph played representative rugby union, sparking one of his keen interests in sports rehabilitation. Whether it is returning to premier rugby, or getting back to a social Sunday league, Joseph has a great understanding of the physical and mental demands of different sporting environments, and will help ensure your safe return.  

Playing a variety of sport has come hand in hand with Joseph’s own injuries and rehabilitation. Fortunately, this helps give Joseph a unique perspective, allowing himself to empathise with patients, having a more thorough understanding of how injuries can impact everyday life. His most recent injury was an ACL and meniscal tear to his knee from rugby for which required surgery. This has driven Joseph’s passion for acute knee injuries and post operative rehabilitation of not only the knee, but all orthopedics.

When away from the clinic, you will find Joseph watching or playing rugby, on the golf course, running, or if the suns out trying to surf.
