GLA:D Canada

GLA:D® is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for individuals with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark has shown a reduction in progression of symptoms by 27%. Other outcomes include a reduction in pain intensity, reduced use of joint related pain killers, and fewer individuals on sick leave. Program participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.
