Since May 2019, a comprehensive physiotherapy service has been offered at The Elms by Back In Motion. Mr Shalin Patel, Musculoskeletal and Sports physiotherapist, has completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, and a Master of Manual and Sports Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia. He is qualified as an instructor for the GLA:D program (Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark). Developed in Denmark, this is an education and exercise package designed to help people with symptoms of hip and knee osteoarthritis. In addition to treating the full range of work and sports related injuries, Shalin has a particular interest in managing complex conditions.

Shalin consults at The Elms on Wednesday, and may be seen privately (no Medicare rebate although a rebate may apply if you have appropriate private health insurance) or through your doctor via a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) as part of a General Practice Management Plan (GPMP) for patients with qualifying chronic complex medical conditions. Please discuss with your doctor regarding whether you are eligible for Medicare-rebated physiotherapy services.

Further information about physiotherapy services offered can be found on the Back In Motion website and appointments can be made by phoning (03) 5367-4130.
