About the GLA:D Program:
It is an exercise-based program that originated in Denmark. This program is specifically designed for those living with Osteoarthritis (OA) in the hips, knees & back. The program has since expanded worldwide with excellent results!
The GLA:D program is a 7-week program that focuses on specific exercises & education to keep you strong and moving WITH osteoarthritis. This program can be broken down into two components:
Two group education classes
Topics covered include what osteoarthritis is, risk factors, self-management techniques, how exercise benefits OA, current treatment options, how to cope with day-to-day difficulties due to OA
A brief assessment will also be done to determine your baseline and needs at the beginning of the program
12 group exercise classes
Classes will run twice a week for 60 minutes each. All classes will be supervised and will provide progressions as necessary as you continue to grow in strength. Each exercise program is tailored to the individual to suit everyone’s needs.
Who can join the GLA:D Program:
Any individual who has been diagnosed with hip or knee osteoarthritis
