GLA:D®, Good Life with osteoArthritis: Denmark, is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip and/or knee arthritis.
Research from GLA:D® program in Denmark shows symptom progression reduces by 32%. Other outcomes included less pain, reduced use of joint related pain medication, and a reduction in sick leave taken from work. GLA:D® participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program, and increased level of physical activities 12 months after starting the program.
This program is very unique in that the education and exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities. By strengthening and correcting daily movement patterns, participants will train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain. No matter your age or degree of osteoarthritis. All the exercises can be modified to suit your strength level.
We have GLAD certified physiotherapists running the program at both our Richmond and Ripponlea studios.
