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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
