Improve your hip and knee pain - exercise and lifestyle program for health and well being
Is your hip pain and knee pain slowing you
down and impacting your confidence?
Are you having sleepless nights, leaving you
exhausted in the day?
Are you fed up with paying the physio, chiro,
or massage therapist every week
just to keep you moving?
Maybe you’re waiting for your hip replacement
or knee replacement surgery, and want
to make certain your post-surgical
recovery will be as rapid as humanly possible!
You're not alone. 3.37 million Australians are suffering from long term, persistent, chronic pain. Pain in the hips and knees is really common, and it doesn’t just worsen our physical health, it also wreaks havoc on our social lives, our family time, and our mental health and well being. There can be many explanations for hip pain and knee pain. The most common cause of hip pain and knee pain, particularly in older adults is osteoarthritis, and this is the main reason people have a hip replacement or knee replacement procedure.
Our Exercise Physiologists at Health in Balance are trained specialists in exercise, rehabilitation, and lifestyle medicine for hip pain and knee pain. We know exactly how to safely assess you, your joint function, muscle strength, flexibility, fitness, and movement control, and work together with you to develop a rehabilitation, strengthening, and health and well-being program to get you back into the life that you miss.
Have been plagued by back problems over many years and more recently by a recurrence of neck soreness and swollen and painful knees. Health in Balance has provided a comprehensive program to address all these issues compared to the ‘piecemeal’ interventions that I have received in the past. The exercises have been carefully selected and graded to meet my current level of fitness while gradually extending my strength. I am enjoying a noticeably increased range of movement throughout my body and feel confident to attempt exercises that I previously regarded as beyond my ability.

After my fall where I sustained a serious injury to my elbow requiring surgery and finding I had osteoporosis I consulted with Health in Balance to help my rehabilitation. I was impressed at their thorough approach taking into account my surgical and medical issues to plan an appropriate regime of sessions. It has always been varied interesting and has helped restore function and allow me to return to pre injury function as well as improving core stability and posture. I would recommend them to anyone with any medical or post surgical issues requiring a coordinated comprehensive approach that is not only beneficial but enjoyable.

Working with my exercise physiologist over the past 10 months has been a challenging but a rewarding experience. He has helped me gain greater insight into my chronic fatigue syndrome while instilling me with strategies to manage it. Heath in balance's environment has been one of support, encouragement and guidance which has aided in times where my chronic fatigue has exacerbated. They have been consistently positive and continue to provide me with much strength and optimism. My exercise physiologist is patient and understands my need to maintain my training which is vital to my recovery process. He has been truly committed to working with me and I look forward to continue to work with him while focusing on overcoming my current health/training restrictions.

I have been referring my patients to Health In Balance since first meeting with Edouard and Daniel. I refer patients with diabetes, osteoarthritis, obesity, patients at risk of falls as well as any other chronic medical condition that will benefit from improved strength, balance and fitness. It is not uncommon for my patients to opt to continue with their program at Health in Balance after their Medicare funded sessions have run out; this in itself is a great testament to the care and professionalism of the team. I have always received excellent feedback from patients about the personalised services that the team at Health in Balance provides. For many elderly patients it is a reintroduction to exercise that they were fearful of making on their own. It is a pleasure to work in partnership.
