PPS GLA:D PROGRAM

Best first treatment for hip and knee arthritis

Now available in Australia, GLA:D®, or Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark, was developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity.

This program is unique in that the education & exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities. By strengthening & correcting daily movement patterns, participants will train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptom progression & reduce pain.

This program can delay surgical intervention, and help patients with long term favourable outcomes in both pain and function.[Skou et al 2018]

This education & exercise program reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis (OA) research. It also includes feedback from people with OA and trainers on what works in the real world to help patients manage OA symptoms.

Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark found symptom progression reduces by 32%. Other outcomes include less pain,
reduced use of pain killers, & less people on sick leave.

GLA:D® participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program & increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.
