Our Practice

Who we are

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

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.

done Massage

We know your body and can identify the causes of aches, pains, and soreness, ensuring a better result every time. A massage conducted by our physios will see a reduction in your aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury or the stresses and strains of everyday life.

We offer a range of massage therapy services – including remedial massage, sports therapy massage and deep tissue massage – so you can benefit from qualified physiotherapy staff and their extensive knowledge of the human body and anatomy.

done Mums & Bubs

Our Mums and Bubs classes are designed to meet the needs of you and your new baby. You will enjoy a safe, rewarding and fun environment while regaining lost fitness and strength and interacting with other mothers and their babies. As these classes incorporate your bub, they provide a fantastic opportunity for them to play, interact and enhance their social skills.

done 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.

done 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.

done Physiotherapy

Whether you have back pain, neck pain, flexibility or mobility issues, we can help. We work in partnership with you and take a holistic view of your health to help you achieve lasting results and help get you back to doing what you love.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research and physio equipment to develop a personal treatment plan to help you improve flexibility, mobility and strength.

done Clinical Pilates

Our clinical pilates and reformer pilates classes are taught by qualified physiotherapists and tailored to your needs. This helps to ensure you achieve faster clinical results and minimise the risk of re-injury. We use a combination of pilates equipment, including reformers, trapeze tables and floor-based exercises.

Our qualified staff use the latest clinical research in the development of your personalised clinical pilates plan to help you improve flexibility, mobility, and strength.

done 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.

done 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.

Practice Director and Physiotherapist

Amanda, better known as "Mandy”, launched the Mentone practice in October 2013 having worked at various Back In Motion practices since 2009. She graduated with honours from Melbourne University in 2008 with a passion for sporting injuries and chronic pain, and went straight into private practice. She has now developed a keen interest in the treatment and long term management of knee pain especially in runners. A desire to assist people with these often complex conditions of the knee came about after her own knee injury in 2006. Mandy has excellent diagnostic skills and uses a range of treatment techniques including dry needling and clinical Pilates. After many years as Pilates Co-ordinator at a different Back In Motion practice, she has extensive knowledge in using clinical pilates to manage a wide range of chronic and acute injuries.

When not at work, Mandy can often be found doing her own Pilates, walking her dogs or watching the latest, most terrifying horror movie.
