Enabling Self-management and Coping with Arthritic Pain using Exercise

ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain, that integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen individualised for each participant. It helps people understand their condition, teaches them simple things they can help themselves with, and takes them through a progressive exercise programme so they learn how to cope with pain better. 

Robust evaluation shows that ESCAPE-pain:

  • Reduces pain
  • Improves physical function
  • Improves the psychosocial consequences of pain
  • Reduces healthcare and utilisation costs.

You can access the ESCAPE-pain website here.  

Redditch Borough Council are working with the Health Innovation Network to bring these evidence based sessions to your locality.
