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.
ZOOM Virtual Programme
In the current climate we are coming up with innovative ways to support people with joint pain to better manage their symptoms and improve their function, keeping them well and enhancing their quality of life.
As a result we have rolled out our ESCAPE Pain Programme virtually via ZOOM. This will involve participating in a group-based education and exercise programme from the comfort of your own home – don’t worry, we will be able to support you in setting this up.
Once you have completed the linked referral form please return it via email to Physiotherapy.Central@wales.nhs.uk
You will then be contacted by a physiotherapist via telephone to confirm your suitability to participate in the programme.
