Good living with arthritis Denmark (GLA:DTM), is a high value treatment protocol for hip and knee osteoarthritis. The program lasts for 6 weeks and consists of assessments, exercise programs with one of our physios and free information sessions so you can truly understand what’s happening in your sore joints. GLA:DTM was developed in Denmark and has since been introduced to Canada and Australia with fantastic results.
Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark found symptom progression reduces by 32%. Other outcomes include less pain, reduced use of joint related pain killers, and less people on sick leave. GLA:DTM participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.
Osteoarthritis is the most common lifestyle disease in individuals 65 year of age and older but can also affect individuals as young as 30 years of age. Current national and international clinical guidelines recommend patient education, exercise and weight loss as first line treatment for osteoarthritis. In Australia, treatment usually focuses on surgery and the GLA:DTM Australia program offers a safe alternative that may avoid the need for surgery.
