GLA:D® Programme

September 29, 2020

Is your hip or knee pain so bad that you are considering surgery? Try GLA:D® First.

GLA:D®, Good Life with osteoArthritis: Denmark, is an education and exercise programme developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.

Research from the GLA:D® programme 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.

Education and exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities, ensuring participants develop skills to self-manage their osteoarthritis. By strengthening and improving confidence with exercise, participants develop better capacity to become or stay active, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain.
