Exercise classes for people with chronic joint pain

ESCAPE-pain is an NHS rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain of the knees or hips which 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.

Each rehabilitation programme consists of twice-weekly sessions lasting for six weeks, incorporating exercise and health education. The course costs £25.

We are proud to have been selected to deliver ESCAPE-pain in the Liverpool area, with sessions serving both the north and south of the city.

Places are limited for ESCAPE-pain. To register, please contact us.

For more information about the ESCAPE-pain programme and its benefits, please see the dedicated ESCAPE-pain website.

Functional Fitness Class


We are pleased to announce that we are now offering a post ESCAPE-pain class which is perfect for those who have previously been on the ESCAPE-pain programme with us or other rehabilitation groups such as pulmonary or cardiac rehab.

These sessions are designed to help you continue ESCAPE-pain styled exercise circuits in a familiar environment and we will ultimately guide you towards transitioning into other Healthiness classes to suit you. The classes do not have an education element, instead incorporating additional functional exercises which build strength, stability and mobility across the body.

These Functional Fitness classes run alongside the main E.P. programme in both the north and south of Liverpool.
