About

The Centre for Health, Exercise & Sports Medicine (CHESM) at the University of Melbourne are excited to announce the release of My Knee Exercise (www.mykneeexercise.org.au).

My Knee Exercise guides people with knee pain through education about knee pain and exercise, a 6 month strengthening exercise program that progresses through 3 programs which can be completed independently at home, and creating plans to increase physical activity.

  • Provides an evidence-based self-directed 6-month strengthening and physical activity program plus educational information
  • Contains useful patient resources (including log books for strengthening exercises and physical activity) that are provided digitally, so that people may print/download them for their own use
  • Includes videos and stories of the experiences of others living with knee pain, and exercise programs so people have a reference for proper form
  • Designed for people over 45 years of age experiencing persistent knee pain or osteoarthritis
  • Available free-of-charge to all users (e.g. people with knee pain, physiotherapists, physiotherapy students, educators, researchers)

My Knee Exercise was designed and developed by physiotherapists (led by Rachel Nelligan, Professor Kim Bennell, Professor Rana Hinman) at the University of Melbourne and tested in a clinical research trial. It was funded by an Australian National Health and Medical Research grant.
