Why choose gla:D Ireland

This programme is unique in that it has been designed with the input of individuals with osteoarthritis (OA) and health care professionals who treat people with mild to severe OA. These individuals made it clear that the focus on both education and exercise was required and that it needed to be applied to everyday activities.


By strengthening the muscles in functional movements and correcting daily movement patterns, participants train their bodies to move properly, thereby preventing symptom progression and reducing pain. You can learn to exercise with more confidence in your joints.
