GLA:D Program

What Is The GLA:D Program?

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.

GLA:D® uses education and exercise for Arthritis to help with daily activities.  You will work on strengthening your body, as well as learning to move correctly and manage symptoms to improve pain.

GLA:D® Australia is a program for all individuals who experience any hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity. You may participate in the GLA:D® Australia program if you have a hip or knee joint problem that resulted in visiting a health care provider.

“Research from the GLA:D® program in Australia shows an average pain reduction of 36%, reduced analgesic consumption, reduction in perceived need for surgery, and clinically meaningful improvement in joint confidence.” You can find out more information the GLA:D® program here.

About The Sessions:

The Sessions are run at several of our Physiotherapy Clinics under the watchful eye of our Physiotherapists. Sessions are run twice a week for 6 weeks. Therefore there are 12 Sessions in total, including two education sessions teaching you about osteoarthritis and exercise.

GLA:D® Australia training consists of:

  • A first appointment with one of our GLA:D® trained physiotherapists explaining the program and collecting data on your current functional ability
  • Two education sessions which teach you about OA, how the GLA:D® Australia exercises improve joint stability, and how to retain this improved joint stability outside of the program
  • Group neuromuscular training sessions twice a week for six weeks to improve muscle control of the joint which leads to reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life (this is rebateable through your private health fund)
