GLA:D

The GLA:D™ Canada program  is an evidence-based  education  and  exercise program delivered by GLA:D™  Certified Therapists  for people with hip and knee Osteoarthritis (OA).  The program was developed in Denmark where more than 10,000 people have participated.  The goal of GLA:D™  is to reduce your symptoms so you can do the activities you want to do in your everyday life.  


     

Results from Denmark at  1-year  follow-up  indentify the following:

-  27%  reduction in pain intensity
-  37%  reduction in use of joint related pain medications in knee patients
-  45%  reduction in hip patients
-  over 30%  increase in self-reported physical activity levels
-  20%  of GLA:D participants with knee Osteoarthritis were on sick leave,  compared to  30 %  at baseline

The GLA:D™ program at InsideOut includes:

-  12 sessions of supervised exercise in groups (up to 6 people) delivered  2 X per week for 6 weeks
-  2 education sessions on:    
         *  the knowledge and treatment of OA
         *  benefits of exercise
         *  the program effects on OA symptoms and general health
         *  future management
-  Completion of  pre / post  program outcome measures to monitor your improvement
-  the option to participate in the National Research study
-  an extensive  Home Exercise Manual  with the exercises done during the class.  This program also provides a reference for a future  Home Exercise Routine  to keep you active once the program has ended.
 



At this time,  all classes are being done by Virtual Video Sessions.
