What is the GLAD Exercise Program?

GLA:D® is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for individuals with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. Research from the GLA:D® program in Denmark has shown a reduction in progression of symptoms by 27%. Other outcomes include a reduction in pain intensity, reduced use of joint-related painkillers, and fewer individuals on sick leave. Program participants also reported high levels of satisfaction with the program and increased levels of physical activity 12 months after starting the program.

The education and exercise program reflects the latest evidence in osteoarthritis (OA) research. It also includes feedback from people with OA and trainers on what works in the real world to manage OA symptoms.

Osteoarthritis is the most common lifestyle disease in individuals 65 year of age and older. It is also prevalent in individuals between the ages of 30 and 45. Current national and international clinical guidelines recommend patient education, exercise and weight loss if necessary as treatment for osteoarthritis. In Canada, treatment focuses largely on surgery and does not follow best practice guidelines for treatment and management of osteoarthritic symptoms.
