  • increase your strength through tailored exercises
  • take back control of your body and balance
  • reduce the risk of falls
  • enjoy better health and wellbeing.

How to access Plus Balance?

Plus Balance is a 6-week program run by physiotherapists or exercise physiologists at Lidcombe (NSW), Blackburn (Vic) and the Footscray (Vic) Wellbeing Centre and Hobart (Tas) Wellbeing Centre. There are several ways to pay for Plus Balance, including:

  • paying privately with a potential Medicare rebate.

We can help you work out the most suitable payment method when you book your program.


What is the structure of Plus Balance?

  • Initial Assessment 1:1 appointment with a physiotherapist, where baseline measurements of strength, mobility and flexibility can be taken to ensure that you are allocated to the most suitable group.
  • 6x 1 hour group classes You will attend a one-hour group class every week for six weeks. These include tailored exercises and education around mitigating falls risk from our qualified allied health professionals.
  • Final Assessment At the end of the six-week program, we’ll assess how the classes have improved your overall health and wellbeing. If there is more we can do to help you improve, you may choose to continue on for a second round of Plus Balance classes or continue working with one of our exercise physiologists or physiotherapists.

How many people are in the class?

A maximum of six participants, to allow for a tailored approach.
