GLA:D® is an evidence-based solution for clinicians who manage people with symptoms associated with knee and hip osteoarthritis, and can be provided to people of all ages. The programme is a not-for-profit initiative hosted by the University of Southern Denmark, and has a registered trademark to help maintain programme quality. GLA:D® provides an effective, high-value alternative to prescription of pain killers and other passive treatments and low-value referrals.
GLA:D® is a standardised, but individualised, treatment program consisting of two patient education sessions and at least 12 neuromuscular exercise therapy sessions. All sessions are group-based and supervised by a certified health care provider with expertise in osteoarthritis and exercise therapy.
