Do you suffer from OsteoArthritis? Do you have hip or knee joint pain?

GLA:D is a program that educates and informs to improve the symptoms of those suffering from OsteoArthritis (OA). This program has been created using the latest research and feedback from sufferers so that pain can be managed and individuals are more confident and able to move more.

One of our practitioners, Anthony Biddle, recently completed this training program and Phyx You Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation are excited to be able to promote the program to all of those that need it.

Research from the GLA:D® program in Australia (GLA:D® Australia Annual Report 2020) found an average reduction in pain of 27% (hip) and 33% (knee), improved quality of life by 20% (hip) and 29% (knee), and reduced usage of pain medication by 45% (hip) and 49% (knee). It was also found that less people desired surgery after completing the program.

At PhyxYou we will be running this program of 14 sessions over a six week period for a total cost of $540, which is less than $40 a session. The group sessions will have a maximum of 6 and a minimum of four so that individualised, supported, treatment and education can be provided.
