GLA:D® or Good Living with Osteoarthritis in Denmark is a unique education and exercise program developed for people suffering with Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis. In Denmark GLA:D® showed symptom progression to reduce by 32% in program participants. Other outcomes included less pain, reduced use of joint related pain killers, and 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.
By strengthening and correcting daily movement patterns, participants train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain.The education and exercises provided can then be applied to everyday activities.
The program is delivered by a physiotherapist who has undertaken specific training and is certified to deliver the program and involves a component of education and a component of exercises for you to do.
