The GLA:D Program in Ontario
Premier Care is introducing a revolutionary course, the GLA:D program for osteoarthritis in Ontario, carefully developed in Denmark with tremendously positive results. Focusing on knee and hip injuries, clients can expect 28% less pain intensity, 27% less severe like symptoms, 35% higher rate of physical exercise and complete customer satisfaction.
The GLA:D Program Ontario, situated at the home of the clinic in Richmond Hill, spotlights the negative impact of osteoarthritis and aims to aid the effects of the body and joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis in Canadians, affecting 38% of people over the age of 20 and 28% of people over the age of 60.
What Sets Apart the GLA:D Program in Ontario From Other Clinics
Premier Care Physiotherapy tries to educate their client about further negative osteoarthritis symptoms by teaching them proper exercises, weight loss and advanced information so that they can start avoiding getting more severe symptoms.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for cartilage loss but the good news is that is highly preventable given the right resources and information. Other clinics work by treating the client’s symptoms but Premier Care teaches them proper techniques to slow down osteoarthritis before it gets to a severe stage. The Glad (Good Life with Osteoarthritis from Denmark) Program encourages patients to think about their lifestyle in a positive way and help them get back on their feet.
The 6-week program, twice a week while maintaining COVID restriction standards, commences with the client performing a 10-minute warm-up on a stationary bike. The second part of the session includes mild circuit training composed of core workouts, muscle strengthening and additional training exercises to progress the client’s mobility. The session ends with a cool-down where they stretch and walk to relieve the muscles.
These exercises are performed in front of the mirror where clients can see their progress and positively reinforce their bodies and minds.
The GLA:D Program also includes tips on how to self-manage severe symptoms and handle hard days that come with having osteoarthritis.
After-Session Patient Care
Premier Care doesn’t stop when the sessions are over; they continue to monitor their client’s well-being to further research and develop more technologically advanced methods to alleviate osteoarthritis pains and pressures. Among the revolutionary Glad Program, the Premier Care clinic specializes in groundbreaking physical health areas such as bracing, neuropathy, sports injuries, pre and post-surgical rehabilitation and custom foot orthotics.
