Our Practice

Who we are

We provide physiotherapy, massage, clinical Pilates, and exercise and rehab to Wantirna South 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 and deliver your next session free.

Our Service Offering

done 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 massage/soft tissue mobilisation, muscle re-education, exercises, acupuncture, dry needling and crutches/wheelchairs if necessary.

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 Pilates, 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. 

done 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 including remedial massage, sports therapy massage, deep tissue massage and myotherapy.

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, deep tissue massage and myotherapy, 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). 

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.

done Clinical Pilates

Whether you’re wanting to improve your flexibility, core strength or your posture, Back In Motion offers clinical Pilates and reformer Pilates taught by qualified physios.

Many gyms and exercise studios offer pilates 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 Pilates/Pilates Reformer at Back In Motion?

Our physios have completed formal Pilates training, and supervise you during class to offer you a safe and effective program.

When you do Pilates 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 Pilates/Pilates Reformer?

Pilates 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 Pilates at least once. Once you see the results and feel the benefits, you'll be hooked!

What are the health benefits of Clinical Pilates/Pilates Reformer?

The health benefits of Pilates include improved flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, core stability, improved balance, spine stabilisation and improved posture.

done 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.

done 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.

done 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.

Physiotherapist (Clinical Associate)

Josh completed his Physiotherapy degree at La Trobe University, and joined the Back in Motion team at Wantirna South soon after.

Josh’s love of sports, science and working with people are what brought him into the physiotherapy profession, and as such he loves the opportunity he has every day to help people get back to doing what they love to do!

Musculoskeletal conditions and the diagnosis and management of these are of particular interest to Josh. Whether they are sporting injuries, niggles or pains, he employs a number of techniques including massage, manual therapy, exercise and Pilates to help his clients become pain-free and less susceptible to re-injury.

When he’s not at the clinic, Josh loves keeping physically active, regularly going to the gym or for a run, which has given him a definite appreciation of the beneficial effects of exercise. He follows the footy closely as a battle-hardened Richmond supporter, and enjoys spending his time relaxing with family (including his dogs) and friends, having a kick of the footy, or playing the guitar.
