GLA:D® Back

Do you experience persistent or recurrent low back pain?

We offer GLA:D® Back, an international research study and program designed to help people with persistent or recurrent low back pain. GLA:D® Back was designed by researchers and therapists at the University of Southern Denmark in partnership with the University of Alberta.

You may have heard of the GLA:D® hip and knee program which consists of education and exercise sessions for patients with hip or knee osteoarthritis. Based on the success of this program, GLA:D® Back was built similarly for people with back pain.
