We recognise that the cost is an issue for some people more than others.
In a recent research article published by GLA:D Australia, the main barrier to doing the program was the GLA:D program cost.
This will determine if the GLA:D program is appropriate for you.
The initial GLA:D assessment is also to work out your personal goals and find out where you are right now with your pain, function and strength.
This allows us to measure the changes that happen by the end of the program.
Our program includes 6 weeks of 2 x one hour exercise sessions per week.
These are all mentored and supervised by GLA:D-trained physios.
There are 2 x one hour education sessions that are a super-charged version of the GLA:D education sessions with lots of opportunities to ask questions.
At the completion of the 6 weeks, there is a follow-up one on one consult.
At 12 weeks, there is also a follow-up consult in which you also repeat the initial measures from the initial assessment.
You get to see the amount of change you have made in pain, function and strength!
The 6 week follow up consult is a major difference to other GLA:D providers in Adelaide.
We have added this consult to the regular GLA:D scheduling.
Instead of waiting for the 12 week follow-up, we have seen that it is critical at the end of the 6 week program to discuss and formulate a plan for what you will do afterwards.
It’s about not only maintaining the improvements but building on them.
We really want you to get the best results from your time investment and financial investment!
Our GLA:D program is $649.
We know this is actually really good value.
If doing GLA:D allows you to avoid surgery, it also means avoiding the post-operative pain of surgery, the medications, and the risks of surgery.
There are a number of really good reasons:
You might think ‘why would I want to do it again?’
We have had quite a number of people do the programme twice, three times and even four times.
Some have found that the first time around gives the start they are looking for.
But they still know they need the accountability that the programme provides.
Some really like the personal guidance.
Some like the group atmosphere and the continued learning about their joints and their pain.
We provide the big discount of $100 as an incentive because we find that repeating the program improves people’s outcomes with pain, stiffness and quality of life.
OPTION 1: upfront payment
OPTION 2: 3 x fortnightly installments, paid in-person at the beginning of each fortnight
OPTION 3: 6 x weekly installments, paid in person at the first session of each week
If none of these work for you, we would like to find a way to make it possible rather than you miss out on the benefits of this fabulous program.
