Type 2 Diabetes is the epidemic of the 21st century, and it can take hold of your life if you let it.
1.2 million people are admitted to hospital each year, due to diabetes-related complications, and 11% of all Australian deaths cite diabetes as the underlying cause.
Our Exercise Physiologists at Health in Balance are trained specialists in prescribing exercise for type 2 diabetes. We know exactly how to assess you, improve your insulin function, help you to lose weight, improve your balance, fitness, and strength, and avoid the dreaded diabetes complications.
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.

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.
