REHABILITATION

GLA:D Program: GLA:D® is an education and exercise program for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms.  Research shows symptom progression reduces by 32% following the program.  Other outcomes include less pain, reduced use of joint related pain killers, and less people on sick leave.  This program is unique in that the education and exercises provided can be applied to everyday activities. By strengthening and correcting daily movement patterns, participants train their bodies to move properly, prevent symptom progression and reduce pain.

Functional Restoration Programs: This is a type of physiotherapy which aims to help people with chronic pain by setting them up with an exercise program to self-manage their condition. It can assist chronic pain-sufferers to increase their physical functioning, improve pain-coping skills, and to promote the return to a productive lifestyle at home or work.  The difference between typical physio treatment and functional restoration is there is limited hands on treatment with functional restoration.

Surgical Rehabilitation: We have extensive experience in helping patients regain strength, movement and conditioning following orthopaedic and general surgery.
