We understand the challenges and impact of osteoarthritis (OA) on daily life, which is why we run the GLA:D® Program – a not-for-profit, evidence-based initiative led by La Trobe to help effectively manage hip or knee OA symptoms and regain confidence and control.
Fully guided by our qualified physiotherapists, the program is delivered through high quality education, exercise sessions and effective self-management strategies to manage pain and help you or someone close to you regain confidence and control.
You’ll discover the potential for reduced hip and knee pain, which can open doors to a more active lifestyle, and as you regain your confidence, you may also notice a positive impact on your health and fitness habits and wellbeing.
Through valuable advice and exercises that you can seamlessly integrate into your everyday activities, you’ll be equipped with the essential skills to self-manage your osteoarthritis and reduce the need for surgery.
We welcome anyone over the age of 18 experiencing any level of hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. Whether your pain is mild or severe, if a hip or knee condition has prompted you to seek medical care, you meet the criteria to join the program.
We accept all health funds and private paying clients.
