About the program
An initial assessment is completed with a GLA:D trained physio to determine eligibility for the program and collect baseline data on your current functional ability.

Two education sessions are provided teaching you about Osteoarthritis, how the GLA:D Australia program works, and what the evidence shows regarding the best treatment of osteoarthritis. Small group neuromuscular training sessions twice a week for six weeks (total of 12 x 1-hour sessions).

Is a referral required?
You do not need a GP referral to participate in GLA:D, however if you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly known as EPC plan) you may use this for your initial assessment.

Can I claim GLA:D as an extra on my private health insurance?
These sessions may be claimed on private health insurance depending on your level of cover, please check with your private health insurance provider.
