Move Forward Rehabilitation


All Move Forward Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition and implement an effective, safe and fun rehabilitation program. A great form of rehab is Pilates which is run specifically from our Butler, Hillarys, Hocking, Kinross, Jindalee, Mt Hawthorn and Quinns locations so please contact us at any of these convenient locations for any further information on this specific form of rehabilitation.

Physiolates – Physio + Pilates

We offer Physio + Pilates classes in a one hour “Friends and Fitness” sessions with up to 4 participants. This is for those patients who have experience in Pilates or are already active and have a good starting exercise level. The classes are also a great way to socialise and have fun! This is available from our Butler, Hillarys, Jindalee, Kinross, Mt Hawthorn and Quinns locations.

For those patients who prefer one on one or need greater supervision we also offer individual “You’re the Focus” Pilates sessions run over a 30 minute appointment. A great inital starting point for those looking at rehabiliating injuries or just generally looking to become fit and healthy. This is available from our Butler, Hillarys, Hocking, Jindalee, Kinross, Mt Hawthorn and Quinns locations..

Rehabilitation programs can also include a combination of hands-on physiotherapy, supervised exercises within the clinic, supervised exercises within a gym local to the clinic, hydrotherapy sessions, one-on-one Pilates and home based exercises.

Have you twisted your ankle or knee on the sporting field?

Research shows that it can take up to 12 months for your ankle and knee to regain full proprioception (balance and coordination) following a moderately severe ligament sprain.With physiotherapy treatment you may feel ready to return to sport after only a few weeks, but what are the chances you will re-injure the same ankle or knee?

Your Move Forward Physiotherapist can develop a graduated rehabilitation program to retrain your proprioception, balance, strength and flexibility, to decrease the chance of you suffering the same injury a second time.

Are you recovering from orthopaedic or neurosurgery?

Whether you have had spinal, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee or ankle surgery, a graduated rehabilitation program will ensure you get the best possible outcome following your investment in surgery. Following surgery you will need to strengthen your muscles, mobilise your joints, and retrain ideal biomechanics to make sure you can move well, live well and stay well.

Have you injured your lower back around the house one too many times?

A Move Forward Rehabilitation program can assist with prevention of recurrence of your low back pain. You will be taught how to move more efficiently to take pressure off your lower back, and an exercise program (Pilates, gym, pool and/or home based) will be commenced to improve strength, flexibility and function.

Workers’ Compensation injuries and injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident can all benefit from a Move Forward Rehabilitation program.

Your Move Forward Physiotherapist will liaise with your GP, other health professionals and your insurance company to devise a treatment plan that is suitable for your needs. These may include physical conditioning programs, return to work programs, and work site assessments. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is combined with physical, proprioceptive and exercise based treatments to ensure a holistic approach to management. To complete these compensation exercise programs we can utilize our onsite gyms at Butler, Hillarys, Jindalee, Kinross, Mt Hawthorn and Quinns locations or take you to a local gym for your convenience.
