BODYSYSTEM®  Classes

As part of our holistic approach in treating patients, our physiotherapists have designed and developed BODYSYSTEM® classes to help you target specific rehabilitation aims such as core stability for adults and kids, strength and balance training and injury prevention for sports in a class environment. Research shows that maximum gains are achieved when you exercise in a small group setting, leading us to structure our classes in order to accommodate no more than 6 students per session. This way you are effectively supervised by our BODYSYSTEM® Physiotherapist throughout the class. There are several different classes on offer to address the different needs of our patients. Current ones include:

GLA:D™ 

BODYSYSTEM has partnered with LaTrobe University to offer the GLA:D™ Australia program.

GLA:D™ is an education and exercise program developed by researchers in Denmark for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis symptoms. 

Approximately 20,000 people in Scandinavia have reduced pain and improved their quality of life by participation in the GLA:D™ Program.

Current national and international clinical guidelines recommend patient education, exercise and weight loss as first line treatment for osteoarthritis. 

GLA:D™ Australia training consists of:
• A first appointment explaining the program and collecting data on your current functional ability.
• Two education sessions.
• Group training sessions twice a week for six weeks to improve muscle control of the joint which leads to reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life.
