GLA:D Canada Now at Leading Edge

GLA:D™ works for individuals who experience any level of hip and/or knee osteoarthritis symptoms, whether they are awaiting surgery or not. While referrals are welcome from any healthcare provider, individuals can access the program without a referral.

Some important considerations for participating in GLA:D™:

  • able to commit to the scheduled 6 weeks of sessions (2 times per week)
  • GLA:D™ is provided in a group format
  • A physiotherapy assessment must take place prior to participation and a follow up visit after the program will be offered. These visits are not part of the GLA:D program
  • If GLA:D™ is not the right choice for you, your physiotherapist will provide you with appropriate treatment options and advice

You might not be able to participate in the GLA:D™ Canada program if:

  • You have other reasons for your hip and/or knee problem e.g. soft tissue or connective tissue problems, inflammatory joint disease, fracture or some other disease
  • You have other symptoms that are more pronounced than the osteoarthritis problems
  • Communication barriers exist that will make participation in a group setting difficult
