Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, Clinical Exercise, and exercise and rehab to Mount Gravatt, Mount Gravatt East, Mount Gravatt Central 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 healt

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.

Our Service Offering

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Men’s Health

Men’s Health Physiotherapy is aimed at men any time of their lives. Our men’s health physios are specially trained at post-graduate level, meaning you will receive the best possible assessment and treatment whatever your concern.

The following conditions are treated by a men’s health physiotherapist.

Urinary and Faecal incontinence: any leakage from your bladder or bowel can often be treated very successfully with the support of physio. This may include bladder and bowel training, pelvic floor strengthening and constipation strategies and treatment. Urinary incontinence is often a problem after prostate surgery so it is important that men have both pre and post op physio to ensure good pelvic floor muscle strength as well as good bladder and bowel habits.

Erectile dysfunction: Forty percent of West Australian men experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is best placed to help manage this through strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles as well as advice surrounding devices like pumps. We also have a focused Shockwave machine which can help treat vascular erectile dysfunction as an adjunct to pelvic floor strengthening. Many people travel internationally for this treatment, but now we have it in Perth.

Pelvic pain: pain anywhere around the pelvis, lower back and hips as well as conditions such as pudendal neuralgia. Pain could also be associated with sexual intercourse such as ejaculatory pain.

Not all conditions are treated with pelvic floor rehabilitation and exercises and everyone is individually assessed and a treatment plan formulated for them. Our men’s health physiotherapist is passionate about the health of men and believes that anyone can overcome their pelvic health issues with the correct guidance and treatment. We want to empower men so that their incontinence or pelvic pain isn’t something they have to suffer with.

Women’s Health

Women’s Health Physiotherapy is aimed at women at any time of their lives. Our women’s health physios are specially trained at post-graduate level, meaning you will receive the best possible assessment and treatment whatever your concern.

The following conditions are treated by a women’s health physio.

Pre and Post-natal care: any symptoms associated with being pregnant such as back and pelvic pain as well as exercise therapy for safe activity in pregnancy. After you have had your baby we recommend a 6 weeks check with the physiotherapist where they can assess your abdominal muscles, pelvic floor muscles and breathing. This is also the time we can start you back to exercise and get you back to what you love doing!

Urinary and Faecal Incontinence: any leakage from your bladder or bowel can often be treated very successfully with the support of physiotherapy. This may include bladder and bowel training, pelvic floor strengthening, constipation management as well as fluid and dietary advice.

Pelvic organ Prolapse: anyone diagnosed with any type of pelvic organ prolapse should seek the support of a specially trained physiotherapist. Treatment is aimed at managing symptoms in the optimal way as well as getting you back to moving and exercising without the fear of making prolapse any worse. If you are having surgery it is still advisable to have physiotherapy pre and post op to ensure you recover as well as possible.

Pelvic pain: this can be pain anywhere in your pelvis, lower back or hips. Often there is a strong correlation between muscle coordination and strength and the pelvic floor muscles or the abdominal wall. Physiotherapy can help give the correct treatment and exercises. Pelvic pain can also refer to painful intercourse or simply vaginal pain, this too is ideally assessed and treated by a women’s health physiotherapist.

Not all conditions are treated with pelvic floor rehabilitation and exercises and everyone is individually assessed and a treatment plan formulated for them. Our women’s health physiotherapist is passionate about both the health of women and men and believes that anyone can overcome their pelvic health issues with the correct guidance and treatment. We want to empower both men and women so that their incontinence, prolapse or pelvic pain isn’t something they have to suffer with.

Ian is the practice director at Mount Gravatt, and is originally from Canada.  Ian received his Masters of Physiotherapy Studies degree from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, and worked part time as a physio aide during his studies, on the Southside of Brisbane.  Ian has also worked as an exercise physiologist alongside the Canadian Olympic Team's chief therapist.  

 As a physiotherapist, Ian started with Back In Motion in Mermaid Waters where he was the head physiotherapist for the Gold Coast Bluetongues (formally the Brisbane Bluetongues), and the Gold Coast Basketball Association.  The ambition to own his own practice grew, and after receiving a scholarship from our National Support Office, Ian made the move to Mount Gravatt, to strike out on his own.  After purchasing 'The Mount Gravatt Physiotherapy Centre' he transformed into what we know today as, 'Back In Motion Mount Gravatt'.  He's proud that the practice now services not only the Mount Gravatt community, but also the surrounding suburbs, such as Holland Park, Mansfield, Carindale, Macgregor, and Wishart.

Personally, Ian's heart lies within basketball and ice hockey.  He passionately supports the Brisbane Bullets, and hopes to see them win the championship one day. He's become the primary physio for Queensland Ice Hockey.  He regularly helps out with the junior state team, as well as the Brisbane Blitz.  Ian is a great advocate of active rehab, but will employ a variety of treatment techniques such as manual therapy, deep tissue massage, joint mobilization, and dry needling.  Ian truly believes in helping everyone adapt to the changes that are associated with aging, and is therefor enthusiastic about motivating everyone in Mount Gravatt to be more proactive with their lifestyle.
