Program for people with knee pain
This program has been put together by our Exercise Physiologists, to help people with knee pain – in particular osteoarthritis of the knee (or knees), patellofemoral pain, Total Knee Replacement, meniscus injury, ACL reconstructions or other knee surgery. In this program we will assess your suitability for an exciting evidence-based* approach to getting your knees stronger and reducing your knee pain.
We have conducted many individual BFR treatments, and a pilot group program, and the results have been consistent with the research: improved strength, improved muscle mass, improved function and reduced knee pain.
6S PHYSIO has been a leader in delivering Blood Flow Restriction treatments on the Central Coast.
We were the first to seek formal training and to source specialised TGA-approved BFR equipment, and we are ready to apply that experience to help you!
If you are assessed as being suitable, you will be provided with:
To get involved, give us a call and we will then send you an email to begin the screening process. You’ll complete a 5-minute questionnaire to see if it’s safe for you to take part. Or you can go straight to the questionnaire right now – it’s completely up to you!
You have nothing to lose by getting in touch: the questionnaire is free, and even if BFR is not for you, we can assist by providing alternative advice.
You may be eligible to receive a referral under Medicare from your GP. If you print this page out and take it to your GP you will be able to discuss your eligibility. Otherwise, your Health Fund may cover you for some of the cost (you’ll need to check with them) or if you see us as a private patient we will provide you with great value for your investment in this low-cost program.
If you are not suitable for this particular approach, don’t worry, you won’t miss out! Our Exercise Physiologists can still provide you with effective exercise prescription and supervision.
