Why we’re different

Physiotherapists are health professionals, specialising in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of physical dysfunction. They are often referred to as “movement specialists”. At Back In Strength, our physiotherapists take that philosophy even further! All our physiotherapists in Deakin use their clinical experience to diagnose accurately and treat effectively, THEN we add the extra step – developing power and strength in your movement – to ensure a long term solution. That’s where the Back in Strength exercise rehabilitation comes in.

At Back in Strength, we will listen to your needs, help you understand what’s wrong and plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition.

Our unique, integrated approach of combining treatment with exercise rehabilitation, provides long term solutions for pain.

Our physiotherapists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA)

Care from certified professionals

Workcover and DVA

At Back in Strength we are pleased to work with both Workcover and other insurers, in helping clients move from hands on therapy to a carefully designed exercise program, aimed to gradually restore function and strength. We start with stability and control exercises, graduating to more functional and complex exercises. These are all supervised under the care of our physiotherapy team. We are happy to work in conjunction with your GP and treating physiotherapist. Before attending we need to have a referral from your GP and notification of your insurer and claim number.

DVA Clients

If you have a gold card, your programme is covered, as it is provided by physiotherapists. We require a current D904 referral from your GP. We can then assess you and begin to start you on a relevant exercise or balance program.
If you hold a relevant white card, we can still cover your treatment if it relates to your specific injury site.
