ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain of the knees and/or hips, 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.
Robust evaluation shows that ESCAPE-pain:
- Reduces pain
- Improves physical function
- Improves the psychosocial consequences of pain
- Reduces healthcare and utilisation costs.
Announcement: Website changes
17 April 2019 - We are very pleased to announce we have made some changes to our website this week. We hope this will improve the flow of information, make it more intuitive of where to find information you're looking for, and improve your overall experience of using this site.

We have relocated the buttons for accessing the ESCAPE-pain website account and ESCAPE-pain Online account.
We are very pleased to release two NEW videos filmed earlier this year showing ESCAPE-pain participants, Regina and Gillian, take control of their joint pain, self-manage their condition, and return to more physically active lives.

Blog: Tackling Arthritis with Exercise at Saints Foundation Pathway to Health – ESCAPE-pain included in Pathway to Health arthritis project. The blog explains how local organisations are trying to tackle health and wellbeing in their local area.
ESCAPE-pain is highlighted in the updated NHS England clinical guidance (pages 15-18) on knee arthroscopy for patients with osteoarthritis in their Evidence-Based Interventions: Guidance for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) published in November 2018 and updated this month. The guidance states that exercise programmes like ESCAPE-pain are more effective treatments for patients with osteoarthritis than arthroscopic knee washouts.
