GLA:D Osteoarthritis Program Registration Now Open!

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:

  1. Reduce symptoms and pain

  2. Improve quality of life

  3. 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!
