Take care of your hip and knee osteoarthritis pain

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a very common condition, and is one of the leading cause of physical inactivity in people aged over 65. To help keep you moving, we’ve launched the GLA:D® Program (Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark) – a not-for-profit, evidence-based initiative led by La Trobe to help effectively manage hip or knee OA symptoms.

Floreat GLA:D® Australia Program

What does the GLA:D® Program involve?

  • An initial appointment to explain the program and measure your current movement ability
  • Two education sessions that teach you about OA, its risk factors, treatment options and take-home self-management strategies
  • Group exercise sessions twice a week for six weeks to improve your control of the joint, your confidence and your strength
  • A review at three months to discuss your progress and goals and re-measure your movement ability
  • Completion of a questionnaire on registration with the program, and then again at three and 12 months after registration to measure changes in areas such as pain, function, quality of life, and medication use

Discover the benefits of the GLA:D® Program

  • Decreased hip and knee discomfort
  • More vibrant and active lifestyle
  • Opportunity to regain confidence
  • Opportunity to improve overall health, fitness and general wellbeing
