GLA:D Canada Physiotherapy
If you suffer from osteoarthritis in the knee(s) or hip(s) then the GLA:D Canada Program may be the drug-free answer to your pain and decreased function.
What is GLA:D Canada?
Originally developed in Denmark, GLA:D is an 8-week education and exercise program proven to help those who suffer from osteoarthritis in their hip(s) and/or knee(s). Research has shown that participants of this program report less pain and reduced use of pain medication. Participants also report being more mobile and physically active after completing the GLA:D Program.
