Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, Clinical Exercise, and exercise and rehab to Como 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 on your last session and deliver your next session free.

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®

- Exercise prescription

- Dry needling
- Management of lifestyle issues such as desk set up, pillow and gym programs

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.

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.

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.

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.


What is LASER?

LASER means Light Amplification from Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Through a specially designed chamber which excites molecules, a LASER generates an intense beam of coherent light. LASERs are used in many ways including drilling and cutting. They have also been used in the medical field for 40 years. Physiotherapy uses LASER to facilitate pain relief, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.

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.

Scoliosis Screening

Scoliosis is a condition affecting the position of the spine in three dimensions, the most notable change normally being a sideways curvature of the spine. It is a condition often missed as it is generally not painful. Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis occurs in approximately 2-3% of children and is more common in females, with the ratio of 10 females to one male having a curve which warrants treatment. About three in 1000 children have curves that are large enough to need treatment.

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.

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.

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.
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.
