MTP Health Knee Program
Our extremely popular Knee Control Program is a specialist exercise knee rehab course to help anyone with a knee concern. We can tailor the program for those who are at a very low level of function eg. falls risk, osteoarthritis, or post surgery right through to athletes looking to prevent injuries and increase performance.
Where Do We Start?
You will be taken through our comprehensive knee assessment process. This is done in person, at the MTP Health clinic, with one of our Exercise Physiologists. Our knee rehabilitation assessments determine your current level of function, help set your goals and monitor your progress. Based on your assessment results a personalised knee rehabilitation exercise program is designed specifically for you.
How Does it Work?
Based on your particular knee concerns, our Exercise Physiologists then develop a 12 week knee rehab exercise plan targeting your unique strengths and weaknesses. To ensure your program is always adapted exactly to you, your progress is reassessed every 4 weeks with a new block of rehab exercises. Each 4 weeks of knee exercises in your programming is therefore designed specifically for you so you get the results you deserve.
After each assessment you get a personalised one on one program start that will enable you to learn your knee exercises under the focused guidance of one of our movement specialists. You then join one of our small group sessions twice a week at a time that suits you. Our classes are capped at 4 people to ensure that you continue to get expert guidance.
Online Only option:
If you can’t attend in person sessions, we do offer an online program. You can do the in person assessment or online through video call. You can then complete your program at home with your own online exercise portal guiding you along under the supervision of our team of Exercise. Through your online exercise program you have access to instructional exercise videos which demonstrate how all your knee rehab exercises should be performed, ensuring you get the most out of every session.
