GLA:D Osteoarthritis Exercise Program
Now offering the GLA:D program at Brighton and Windsor clinics in Melbourne.
At Platinum Physio, we utilise and incorporate the principles of the GLA:D Exercise Program into our management of knee and hip osteoarthritis.
GLA:D (Good Living with Arthritis: Denmark) is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. This program is unique in that the education and exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities.
Our certified GLA:D physiotherapists will guide you through the program, which focuses on managing pain, improving knee or hip function and looking at how osteoarthritis can be managed to reduce the impact on your quality of life.
The GLA:D program was created to help manage osteoporosis, with evidence showing that patient education and neuromuscular exercise delivered by physiotherapists forms best practice management for knee and hip osteoarthritis.
If you would like more information on the program, and whether this is right for you, please call us on 03 8554 0111, and ask to speak to one of our physiotherapists.
If you are an orthopaedic surgeon, doctor or health care practitioner, you can refer a patient to the GLA:D program at Platinum Physio by sending a fax to 03 8669 4299.
