GLA:D™ Canada Program

GLA:D® is an eight-week exercise and educational program for people with symptoms of knee or hip osteoarthritis (OA). The program aims to reduce symptoms, including pain intensity, the use of joint-related painkillers and fewer individuals on sick leave.

Research from GLA:D® shows that participants report positive outcomes by increasing their level of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.

The GLA:D™ Fit after 50 program is open to clients of all ages who meet the criteria set by GLA:D™ Canada and GLA:D® regarding clinical symptoms. Each program includes health intake, neuromuscular exercise sessions, health education, and follow-ups.
