The GLA:D® program is a specialized exercise and education program designed to help people with osteoarthritis manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Developed in Denmark, The GLA:D® program focuses on evidence-based exercises and education to reduce pain, improve joint function, and increase physical activity.
The GLA:D® program is available to everyone but is FULLY COVERED for those with Silver HBF hospital cover or greater.
GLA:D® consists of two parts: education sessions and exercise training. The education sessions teach participants about osteoarthritis and its management, while the exercise training focuses on improving muscle strength, coordination, and mobility. GLA:D® has been shown to be very effective in reducing pain and improving function for people with osteoarthritis. Drop by the clinic on the outside of the Forum to enquire at Life Ready Physio.
