GLA:D® Program

The GLA:D Program (Good Life with osteoArthritis: Denmark) is an innovative education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.

In mid-2022, we became one of the first facilities in Australia to roll out the GLA:D Program and we’re proud to be helping set the gold standard for osteoarthritis treatment, management and prevention.

Initial results from the GLA:D Program in Australia have been impressive, including 36% reduction in average pain, reduced need for medication, a reduction in perceived need for surgery (ie. hip and knee replacements and arthroscopies) and clinically meaningful improvements in quality of life and function. By strengthening and improving confidence with suitable exercise, participants developed better capacity to become or stay active, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain.
