Performance Sports Therapy is excited to be the first clinic hosting the GLA:D® (Good Life with OsteoArthritis from Denmark) program in Ottawa’s east end!
It is an 8 week education and exercise program delivered by a Physiotherapist for people with symptoms of hip or knee osteoarthritis. The program aims to:
Reduce symptoms and pain
Improve quality of life
Teach participants to control movements and improve functional activities.
It involves 1 assessment, 2 education classes, and 12 neuromuscular group exercise sessions. Participants also contribute to quality monitoring by reporting their outcome results and functional tests to GLA:D Canada.
Feedback about the program across Denmark has been fantastic, with over 20,000 people reporting, on average:
27% reduction in pain intensity
37%-45% reduction in use of joint related pain medications
Over 30% increase in self-reported physical activity levels
Our first sessions are starting the first week of June so please call 613-742-1230 or email Stephanie at stephanie@PSTottawa.ca for more information or to book an assessment.
*Physiotherapy receipts are provided so each session can be claimed with your private insurance!
