ESCAPE-pain classes for chronic pain and arthritis
ESCAPE-pain stands for Enabling Self-management and Coping with Arthritic Pain using Exercise.
It's a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain – often labelled osteoarthritis – that integrates education and exercise.
If you live with hip or knee pain, join our ESCAPE-pain class and meet other people living with osteoarthritis.
In our classes, run by trained ESCAPE-Pain facilitators, you will be given:
- Information and simple ways to better manage knee and/or hip pain.
- A gentle, individualized exercise programme that matches your needs and pace.
How to join
You'll need to request a referral from a physio or your GP, and must live in the Wokingham Borough.
