GLA:D Hip or Knee Arthritis Program

GLA:D®, or Good Life with Arthritis: Denmark, is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.

Osteoarthritis is the most common lifestyle disease in people 65 years of age and older, but it can also affect individuals as young as 30. This six-week education and exercise program reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis research and includes feedback from people with osteoarthritis and trainers on what works in the real world to help manage osteoarthritis symptoms.


Call us on 132 246 (132 BHN) for GLA:D times and locations.

Exercise groups are run by a Physiotherapist.  These sessions focus on improving muscle control around the joint leading to a reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life.

The program includes sessions that teach participants about Osteoarthritis, how the GLA:D exercises improve joint stability and how to retain this outside of the program.


Details of fees can be provided when confirming your group and eligibility. Please phone 132 246 (132 BHN).


Participants are referred by their treating Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist. Eligibility generally covers all individuals who experience any hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, regardless of severity.
