BOOK A CONSULTATION

TELEHEALTH

We have launched Telehealth, a Physio online service to provide Physiotherapy consultations over video chat.

Even before the impact of COVID-19, there has been a growing consumer demand for access to video-consultation services provided by Physiotherapists. Given the COVID-19 virus’ impact, we are discounting our standard fees for Telehealth appointments to ensure our clients don’t fall behind in their treatment.

To access this service, you will simply need a computer or smart device with an internet connection and camera. We will send you a text message with a secure ID login and access to a private video consultation with your preferred Physio. We’re here to help you on your journey to recovery to get you moving again, whether that be in a practice, or via video if you can’t get to a practice.

How To Book:

  • 1. Simply call Back In Motion Prospect on (08) 8269 3800
  • 2. Book in a time for your consultation which can be short, medium or long depending on your situation.

Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical exercise and rehab to Prospect and surrounding suburbs in inner north Adelaide. We have one-on-one and semi-private classes and because our services are delivered by physios, you can claim them on private health insurance with extras cover.

Why we're different

You want help and a "quick-fix" for your problem might sound good, but over time is inconvenient, costly and ineffective in comparison to taking preventative measures. Our unique clinical approach, Results4Life, offers the best to keep 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

GaitScan® Assessment

Back In Motion’s scientific GaitScan® assessment technology allows your physio to closely analyse your foot mechanics. This is done by measuring timing sequences, mapping foot pressure and providing an in-depth visual report that you can take home.

Using GaitScan®, your Back In Motion physiotherapist can then determine whether faulty foot function is the cause of your discomfort and whether custom orthotics will benefit you. If so, the results of your assessment are used to create customer orthotics moulded and manufactured specifically for your needs.

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.

Find out more about Shockwave Therapy at Back In Motion

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 Services

We can attend your residential care facility at least four times per week, helping reduce and better manage your resident’s pain, improve their quality of life and reduce incidence of challenging behaviours. Better pain management can increase mobility, sleep as well as reduce depression, anxiety and pharmaceutical use.

Running Assessments

Conducted by our Physiotherapists trained in running Biomechanics, this is a functional technique and performance assessment which will analyse your running (technique and training loads) and be used to guide the implementation of strategies to improve your running performance and reduce your risk of injury.

Muscles In Motion

Whether you’re looking to start an exercise program for the first time or get back into fitness after an injury or time off, Muscles In Motion classes are a great place to begin. Your physiotherapist will lead the class with the aim of improving your level of strength and fitness. The goal is to prevent injury or the reoccurrence of injury as well as enable optimal and healthy body function and movement.

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.

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.

GLA:D - Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark

Now available at Back In Motion, GLA:D Australia is an 8 week education and exercise program for knee and hip osteoarthritis, provided under the supervision of a GLA:D certified physiotherapist.

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.

Is GLA:D for me?

GLA:D is a program for all individuals who experience any hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity. You may participate in the program if your hip or knee joint problem resulted in visiting a health care provider. You may not be able to participate in the program if:

  • You have other reasons for your hip and/or knee pain, including; tumour, inflammatory joint disease, previous hip fracture, soft tissue or connective tissue problems.
  • You have other symptoms that are more pronounced than the osteoarthritis problems (for example chronic generalised pain or fibromyalgia).
  • You are unable to understand and communicate in English.

OA Treatment in Australia

Treatment usually focuses on surgery. The GLA:D program offers a better and safer alternative. Research from the GLA:D program in Denmark found symptom progression in participants reduced by 32%. Other outcomes include less pain, reduced use of joint related pain killers and decreased sick leave. GLA:D participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased.

Why is it important?

  • High levels of physical inactivity are reported in Australians with osteoarthritis.
  • Exercise can provide symptomatic relief and improve the quality of life for Australian's with osteoarthritis
  • Prolong the need for joint replacement

This program is unique. The education and exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities. By strengthening and correcting daily movement patterns, participants will train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptoms and reduce pain.

Pricing

Please call our practice to discuss pricing and program running times. You do not need a doctor’s referral, however you may be eligible for a rebate from Medicare for some of the cost of the program (at the GP's discretion).

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.

Clinical Exercise Class

Clinical Exercise is an advanced class guided by a physiotherapist. Once you have progressed from individual and semi-private Clinical Exercise, you’ll be able to join Clinical Exercise classes allowing you to develop your skills and challenge your body.

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.

 

 

The signs to look out for:

- Ribs: you may notice a difference in your child’s ribs when they lean forward, one side of the ribs may be more raised than the other.

- Shoulder blade asymmetry: you may notice winging of your child’s shoulder blade, or that one shoulder seems to be higher than the other.

- Clothes not sitting evenly: often T-shirts or pants/skirts may not seem to fit correctly or symmetrically.

 

 

We have a scoliosis physiotherapist, Geraldine, who practices in the treatment of the Schroth Method for scoliosis; she has also trained overseas in this method.

Free Screening

If you are concerned that you or your child may have scoliosis we have a free screening program available. You will be able to book a 20 minute Free Initial Assessment with Geraldine. If the curve is suspected to be scoliosis we are able to refer for a bulk billed X-Ray at Perth Radiological Clinic for scoliosis screening X-Rays. If scoliosis is confirmed on X-Ray, Geraldine will be able to liaise with your GP to start the most appropriate course of action.
