Okotoks Physical Therapy has been proudly serving serving the Okotoks community since 2004. One of our physiotherapists, Ashley Humphrey, recently completed a training program for a better understanding of how to help those who have symptoms of Osteoarthritis and become certified to offer the GLA:D program here in the Foothills.

Experiencing pain or stiffness in your hips or knees?

An assessment with a therapist can determine if your pain is a symptom of osteoarthritis, a condition in your lower back, a strained muscle, or associated with another diagnosis.

What is GLA:D?

Run over an 8 week period, GLA:D is an education and exercise program that is delivered by certified therapists aimed at people with symptoms of hip or knee osteoarthritis. It was developed in Denmark and has had over 10,000 participants. Through this program, you will learn how to control your movements to allow you to be more active – as well as reducing pain, and improving your quality of life.
