ESCAPE-pain programme supported by Orthopaedic Research UK

Stand A42

We are committed to supporting the wider MSK community by bringing together professionals across the clinical, leisure and community sectors to support the millions of people suffering from poor MSK health. Key to this strategy is the rollout of the ESCAPE-pain programme.

ESCAPE-pain stands for Enabling Self-management and Coping with Arthritic Pain using Exercise. It is an evidence-based, cost effective, group rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain, that integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen individualised for each participant. The programme was originally devised for people with knee osteoarthritis but has been adapted to help people with hip and back pain. Since its inception, the ESCAPE-pain programme has been spread widely across the UK and has been used by more than 20,000 participants, saving £30million in health and social care costs.
