GLA:D Program Coming Soon

Arrow Physiotherapy is soon to be launching the GLA:D (TM) program. The GLA:D (TM) program is considered to be the best first treatment for hip & knee arthritis. It is an education & exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.

What does GLA:D (TM) involve?

The education and 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 worls to help patients manage OA symptoms.

GLA:D (TM) Australia training consists of:

  • A first appointment explaining the program and collecting data on your current functional ability,
  • Two education sessions which teach you about OA, how the GLA:D (TM) Australia exercises improve joint stability, and how to retain this improved joint stability outside of the program.
  • Group neuromuscular training sessions twice a week for six weeks to improve muscle control of the joint which leads to reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life.

 

For further information about the GLA:D (TM) program, visit https://gladaustralia.com.au/

 

We will be looking to commence GLA:D (TM) programs at Arrow Physiotherapy from the beginning of April 2019.

The program will run for 6 weeks (2 x 1 hour exercise sessions each week) + 2 x 1 hour education sessions towards the beginning of the program. The program will be run by Chris Musgrave (physiotherapist). Full details to be confirmed.

To express interest in the program or if you have any questions, please contact the clinic on 8850 7770 or email the clinic at arrow@arrowphysiotherapy.com.au.
