Run and fully supervised by our trained physiotherapists, GLA:D® Australia is a not-for-profit initiative led by La Trobe University that reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis (OA) research and helps patients manage hip and knee OA symptoms. Learn more at gladaustralia.com.au/faq-for-people-with-oa/.
GLA:D® Australia is a program for all individuals who experience any hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity. You may participate in the GLA:D® Australia program if you have a hip or knee joint problem that resulted in visiting a health care provider.
Program Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark found symptom progression reduces by 32%. Other outcomes include a less pain, reduced use of joint related pain killers, and less people on sick leave. GLA:D® participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.
