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 Rowville on (03) 9755 5910
  • 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 exercise and rehab to Rowville 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 on your last session and deliver your next session free.

Our Service Offering

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Semi-Private Clinical Exercise

Once you have completed a prescribed series of one-on-one Clinical Exercise sessions, your physio may recommend you commence semi-private Clinical Exercise classes. These classes have a maximum of five participants. You'll receive guidance and attention from the physiotherapist instructing the class in accordance with your individual Clinical Exercise program. Your program may include a combination of mat and reformer work.
