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

Quick-fixes or shortcuts are not something we strive for during your consultation. The swift management of your pain and symptoms is only the first step our team will take to help you achieve lasting results.

We believe in getting the right result the first time so you can get back to what you love without the threat of re-injury.

Our focus is not only on offering talented physiotherapists, but also delivering a great physiotherapy experience.

You will be surprised at all the physical health benefits that come with sticking to your personal treatment plan including improved flexibility, mobility and strength.

done Massage

When you get a massage from a physiotherapist you are benefiting from four plus years of dedicated university study on the human body. 

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.

A massage conducted by our physios will see a reduction in your aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury or the stresses and strains of everyday life.

done Clinical Pilates

We offer individual and small group clinical Pilates classes taught by qualified professionals and physiotherapists. Unlike group classes at a gym, our approach to Pilates is clinically proven and specifically tailored to your needs. These tailored exercises target problem areas ensuring greater results and minimising the risk of injury re-aggravation.

You will use a combination of specialised Pilates equipment including reformers and trapeze table complimented by floor-based exercises depending on your needs. This brings about better targeting and resistance as you progress in your Pilates program.

done Exercise and Rehab

Whether you’re looking to increase your fitness or get back into exercise after time off or injury, an exercise and rehabilitation session will get you off to a good start. 

Our physiotherapists can design programs to cater to your every need including weight loss, injury rehabilitation, fitness and endurance training as well as strengthening and toning.

Your physio knows your body and has the scientific and clinical knowledge to ensure your workout is both safe and caters to your abilities and previous injury history.

done Vibration Therapy

We offer side-alternating, high-frequency vibration therapy technology. You can experience results not only as treatment for an existing 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.

Rob’s proactive and enthusiastic approach to all facets of the Back in Motion business has seen him promoted to various positions including Clinical Supervisor (Senior Physio) whilst he was at Wantirna, where he was also involved in mentoring and coordinating staff.

In Rob’s spare time, he enjoys to be quite active as he participates in events such as bike rides and fun runs to raise money for charity each year. Rob loves watching AFL especially the team he barracks for, CARLTON – but don’t hold that against him!

Ben is our ever enthusiastic Senior Physiotherapist. Having worked at Wantirna South Back In Motion since the beginning of 2010, Ben loves nothing more than making our practice a fun and inviting place for our clients and staff alike.

Ben is a University of Melbourne physiotherapist and completed his course with honours. He has experience treating in a variety of areas including Sports Physiotherapy, Dry Needling, Pilates and Hydrotherapy.

Physiotherapy has also taken Ben far away from the practice to places like Palm Island in Queensland where he's made several trips with the SOS Foundation to work with the Indigenous Community and even to a Private Practice in Jakarta, Indonesia! 

Ben loves the great outdoors - whether it’s hiking, cycling, kayaking or snowboarding - and lets his competitive nature thrive with his footy and cricket. He also loves nothing more than going to the MCG on game day to watch his beloved Essendon Bombers win! Away from his work as a Physio and many sporting commitments, Ben plays a variety of musical instruments including piano and bass guitar in a progressive rock band ‘aronora’ (check them out @!).

She went on to compete at several National competitions in the 400m, 400m hurdles and medaled each time in her main event -the 800m event. The amazing physiotherapists that helped her along her athletic journey are the reason she chose to become a physiotherapist herself.

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.

Lewis has a vested interest in sports injuries and has worked for football clubs (local and VFL) over the past few years. He has a particular interest in conditions around the hip, knee and shoulder.
