The GLA:D program has helped thousands of people with hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA) manage their symptoms of pain and loss of function and promotes independence in physical activity.
The program reflects the latest OA research and has been developed based on feedback from people with OA, as well as a healthcare professional who provides care to individuals with mild to severe symptoms. GLA:D, therefore, provides an evidence-based approach that works in the real world.
