Along with Mat being part of the Back In Motion family for almost 10 years.
We are passionate about optimising the health of our clients and community via access to high quality health care and education to allow us all to reach or re-find our full potential; and get back to doing the things we love. The human body is amazing and this is why we do what we do. We feel both honoured and grateful to be entrusted the opportunity to assist all of our staff and patients along their health journey.

We are continuing to take all necessary precautions and training as indicated by the Government, Chief Medical Officer and our association the APA during COVID-19 to ensure everyone has access to their usual healthcare needs, whether that is Face-to-Face, in the gym, or via Online Consultations..

Quick-fixes vs. lasting results

We understand that sometimes you want a “quick-fix” for your injury, however our experience continues to prove that this ends up being more costly and inconvenient over time.

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. You will be surprised at all the physical health benefits that come with sticking to your personalised Results4Life® roadmap, including improved flexibility, mobility and strength.

Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, Clinical Exercise, and exercise and rehab to Eltham 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.
