The best first treatment for hip and knee osteoarthritis
GLA:D®, or Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark, is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. This education and exercise program uses the latest evidence in osteoarthritis research. Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark found symptom progression reduced by 32%, reduced pain and increased level of physical activity.
GLA:D TM Australia training consists of:
- An initial appointment to explain the program and collect data on your current functional ability
- Two education sessions which teach you about osteoarthritis and how exercise improves joint stability
- Twice weekly group neuromuscular training sessions for six weeks
This program is 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.
Grand Slam Physiotherapy is a registered GLA:D TM Australia clinic. You do not need a referral from your Doctor, however you may be eligible for a rebate from Medicare for some of the cost of the program, if deemed appropriate by your GP.
