Osteoarthritis: GLA:D Canada Program

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 group education classes, and 12 neuromuscular small group exercise sessions.  Participants may also contribute to quality monitoring by reporting their outcome results and functional tests to GLA:D Canada.
