Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical Pilates, and exercise and rehab to Melton 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 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.

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 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.

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 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 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.

Jon initially completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Science before moving into a Masters in Physiotherapy Practice at La Trobe University.

Throughout his childhood and teenage years, he spent most of his time playing sport such as basketball, volleyball, soccer and footy. His initial contact with physiotherapy occurred after he sustained an injury, which required surgery and was told that he was not able to play contact sport for four years.

Due to his injuries and subsequent training his physiotherapy knowledge increased. He is now a very accomplished physiotherapist with passion of helping his clients through their health and well-being journey.

Jon now predominantly plays basketball, where he learns to prevent and rehabilitate his own injuries.

He has a keen interesting in rehabilitating sporting injuries and focuses on correcting biomechanical dysfunction and muscle movement patterns. He draws his experience from his background dealing with elite level sporting athletes, such as being head physiotherapist for the U21s and U14s Hockey Victoria State teams in 2015. His knowledge and love for sport allows him to relate to clients on a more specific level and tailor rehabilitation to return to sport.

When not in the clinic, he spends most of his time at the gym, playing his guitar and mixing up some beats, cheering on his beloved Richmond Tigers or rehabilitating his own injuries. He also has a soft spot and admiration for people with amazing ink artwork.

Travelling the world is on top of his very long bucket list.
