Where do you start?
You will be taken through our comprehensive hip and knee assessment process. This is done in person, at the MTP Health clinic, with one of our Exercise Physiologists or Physiotherapists. Your hip and knee assessment results determine your current level of function, help set your goals and monitor your progress.
Based on your assessment results a personalised hip and knee exercise and education program is designed specifically for you.

We know that with each hip or knee issues there is a person, with different goals, experiences and lifestyles. So, in the Knee & Hip Program, we make sure that everything you do is tailored to you, in order to assist you in achieving your specific goals.
Knee and Hip pain is about a lot more than just our hips & knees. That's why education and working to help you learn why each exercise is included so you can continue to progress even after you finish with us. It's all about giving you back control your health.
We make sure that each & every week you're progressing. Every session you are supervised to make sure the quality of execution is ideal. After each 4 weeks carry out a comprehensive review and re-programming so you continue to improve.
How does it work?

As a foundations level participant you are working on regaining the baseline muscle activation and movement required to do your day to day activities more comfortably.

In longevity you have the ability to do everyday activities but things like stairs, prolonged walking or squatting down are a problem. You will be focusing on getting stronger and building your range of movement. So you can do more with less pain and limitation.
LEVEL 3: LIFESTYLE
At the lifestyle levels you are strong enough for your day to day activities. But you want more.
