We’ve helped 100s with Hip and Knee osteoarthritis reduce their pain, rely less on pain killers and delay or completely avoid joint replacement surgery.
The GLA:D Program

Still not sure the GLA:D program is right for you? Here’s some things you need to know:
- The research shows exercise is safe and helps. Exercise has even been shown to thicken joint cartilage!
- Findings on your scans are poorly correlated to pain and disability. We’ve seen marathon runners with severe osteoarthritis, who run long distances without any trouble! Just cause your scan says your knee is ‘buggered’, doesn’t mean it is.
- Your degree of arthritis on imaging DOES NOT predict your pain and disability levels
Lastly, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners clinical practice guidelines states:
“We strongly recommend offering land based exercise for all people with knee and hip OA to improve function and pain regardless of their age, structural disease severity, functional status or pain levels”CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT ONLINE
