Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D)

As a complement to the ACT Clinic, Zero Gravity Physiotherapy is now running the GLA:D Program out of their clinic. The GLA:D program is an adapted patient education program from Denmark that is targeted at patients living with osteoarthritis (OA). It highlights the importance of early intervention (education & exercise) for people with mild, moderate, or severe OA of the hip and/or knee. It has the potential to improve the quality of life of this extensive group ( 20.4% of Canadian Adults currently live with OA ) and may delay or prevent the need for surgery for hip/knee OA.

The GLA:D program utilizes extensive OA and lifestyle education provided by a registered Physiotherapist coupled with hands on manual therapy and a specific exercise program designed through evidence-based research. These exercises are specifically chosen in order to help improve health of the join and provide prolonged pain management for patients with OA.

Recovering from a concussion can be a difficult and frustrating time. Zero Gravity Physiotherapy understands that each patient is affected differently, and as such, requires individualized care. Zero Gravity Physiotherapy has undergone training and education through The Shift Concussion Management Program, an evidence-based educational platform for Health Professionals working with concussion patients.
