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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
