Escape Pain is a group-based 5 week course for the management of chronic joint pain of the knee or hip through exercise. There are 2 classes each week. Classes are a blend of education and exercise so you can reduce pain and gain confidence about how to manage your joint pain in the future.
You will learn physical exercises, management techniques for pain flare ups, how to pace yourself and much more!
How could Escape Pain help you?
Escape Pain aims to reduce pain, improve physical function, self-confidence, people’s sense of being in control of their problems, and the depression and frustration that people with chronic pain often feel. Exercise and movement is helpful physically and psychologically. Joints need to be supported by strong muscles and maintaining the activities we enjoy brings us joy and confidence!
Escape Pain does not cure arthritis nor eliminate pain completely but it can provide you with tools to self-manage your joint pain in the future.
Over 5 weeks, you will have 10 sessions. These will be on a Tuesday and a Friday each week, 10:30-11:30am.

Who is Escape Pain for?
Escape Pain is for people with hip and knee arthritis.
Isn't rest the best thing for joints?
Joints need to be supported and protected by strong muscles. When we aren’t using our muscles they can lose strength. Doing specific exercises and keeping active builds our muscle strength and supports our joints. Exercises which build muscles don’t need to be strenuous though. Regular physical activity can keep muscles working – this isn’t about sweat and tears!
