Description

GLA:D® stands for Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark and was launched in Denmark in 2013 with the aim of implementing international guidelines in practice. In the last five years, almost 38,000 patients with knee or hiposteoarthritis have gone through the programme. The effect of the programme is controlled and the results show that it leads to pain reduction, improved quality of life, lower intake of painkillers and reduced need to take sick leave from work.

Ved uddannelse og træning har du mulighed for at forbedre din funktion og reducere din smerte i dit knæ eller din hofte. GLA:D® er et not-for-profit initiativ oprettet af Ewa Roos, som er professor i muskuloskeletal funktion og fysioterapi (FoF) ved Syddansk Universitet, og professor i træning og sundhed Søren Thorgaard Skou fra FoF og Næstved-Slagelse-Ringsted Sygehuse. Metoden anvendes nu overalt i landet og støttes af Gigtforeningen.
