Physiotherapy for Osteoarthritis
Our Physiotherapists are trained in the GLA:D Australia program.
GLA:D®, (Good Life with osteoArthritis: Denmark) is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.
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 train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain.
"Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark shows symptom progression reduced by 32%."
Other outcomes include:
- Less pain
- Less unnecessary surgery
- Reduced use of joint related pain killers
- Less people on sick leave
GLA:D® participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.
