Integrated Osteoarthritis Management program

Osteoarthritis is a very common type of joint disorder that can cause significant pain and stiffness and sometimes inflammation and swelling. 

The Integrated Osteoarthritis Management™ program is a specialised 18-week, 3-phase osteoarthritis management program which combines weight loss, lower limb muscle strengthening and pain management strategies to help you: 

  • reduce the load on your joints
  • keep your joints moving
  • reduce severity of joint pain
  • (where applicable) improve fitness for joint replacement surgery and enhance preparation for post surgery rehabilitation; and
  • develop new lifestyle habits that will make it easier for you to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle for life.

The program is run by the Healthy Weight for Life team on behalf of Medibank. For Medibank members who meet the eligibility criteria (including a body mass index of 30+) the program is funded by Medibank. If you’re eligible, you could receive around $745 worth of products, service and support at no additional charge. There is no need to attend meetings or clinics and all program components can be delivered to you.

For a detailed overview of the program, eligibility criteria and how to apply, visit Osteoarthritis Management or call Healthy Weight for Life team on 1800 226 180 (free call – in Australia).
