BOOK A CONSULTATION

TELEHEALTH

As surprising as it may sound, physiotherapists can perform many of the manual assessments we conduct in our practices simply using video observation. We can also take a full history, provisionally diagnose your injuries and health concerns, give comprehensive advice, supervise exercise therapy and educate you about self-treatment options.

We are able to see all our existing clients and any new clients wanting the service. Private health insurers are coming onboard, as well as all the Medicare EPC clients on a care plan.

We can offer you short, medium and long consultations to suit your situation, and given the impact this virus is having on people, we have applied a discount to our standard fees to ensure you don't fall behind in your treatment. All you will need is a computer or smart device with an internet connection, and we can send you an email or text message with a secure Meeting ID and access to a video consultation with your preferred physio.

Once you are connected to our secure Telehealth platform, your consultation is likely to include:

  • Questions and conversations about your condition
  • Assessments and tests performed by you in front of the camera, and then a discussion regarding the best treatment options and progressions
  • Guidance around exercises and which activities will help, as well as things to avoid that may aggravate your condition/injury
  • A discussion on lifestyle factors that may contribute, and self-management strategies that you can employ to help manage your condition at home
  • Accompanying information emailed, as well as videos of the exercises you need to do

To continue progressing with your rehabilitation program and book in your first Online Consultation, please call 5613 3115 to speak to our Support Staff.

Book your Free Initial Assessment today.

Treatment following your assessment is charged at the cost of a standard consultation. See our T&Cs for more information.

Our Practice

Free Initial Assessment

Where other Physio's charge more for the initial consult, we do the assessment component for FREE. That way, we can truly ascertain whether Physiotherapy is the best treatment option for you. It also allows you to 'suss' us out before committing to treatment.

Why we're different

The biggest predictor of an injury is a previous injury. A "quick-fix" might sound good, but over time it's proven to be inconvenient, costly & ineffective compared to taking long-term preventative measures. Our Results4Life philosophy, keeps you on track towards optimal, lifelong, physical health.

Extended Hours

Convenience and accessibility are crucial to compliance to your rehab program. Conveniently located on Classic Way behind the Treetops Shopping Centre, our extended trading hours allow for treatment before or after work. We are open on Saturday's too!

Our Service Offering

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:

- Exercise prescription
- Postural analysis and correction
- Soft tissue massage/mobilization
- Dry needling
- Management of lifestyle issues such as desk set up, pillow and gym programs
- Prescription of aids such as crutches, orthotics and braces

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. 

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.

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.

Semi-Private Clinical Exercise

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

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.

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.
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.

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.

Malcolm graduated from Bond University where he completed his Doctor of Physiotherapy degree. Prior to this, he graduated from the University of Ottawa (Canada) with a degree in Human Kinetics.  

Malcolm has always enjoyed being active and has been involved in sport from an early age. He played soccer, ice hockey, and rowed, but in particular he enjoyed gridiron and rugby union. Injuries placed him in the physiotherapy office more than once where he was exposed to the profession and learned what to do (and not to do) throughout the healing process. Having experienced the patient side of physiotherapy first-hand Malcolm understands what it takes to get his clients out of pain and functioning optimally.

 

Malcolm believes in exploring health through movement, function, and strength.  In particular, he is interested in bridging the gap between rehabilitation and performance training and helping clients become the best versions of themselves- whatever that may be.

 

Outside of the office, you'll find Malcolm climbing at a local bouldering gym, surfing like a kook at the points, or trying to make lifting heavy weights look light in the weight room.
