$1.7 million to fund research into non-surgical, high value care for knee osteoarthritis

The GLA:D Australia team and lead researcher Dr Christian Barton are pleased to announce nearly $1.7million funding from the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) and Australia Physiotherapy Association (APA) to investigate if high value non-surgical care, including exercises, education and if applicable weight management interventions, can delay or even prevent the need for joint replacement surgery, pain medication and other treatments.
