Enabling Self-management and Coping
with Arthritic Pain using Exercise

Class locations for knee and hip pain

Across the country there are several ESCAPE-pain providers that have either restarted their face-to-face ESCAPE-pain knees and hips classes, or others who are delivering virtual classes on platforms such as MS Teams, Attend Anywhere and Zoom. Group sizes are between 3-6 and seem to be going down very well with participants and facilitators alike, but as you might expect the technology can sometimes be challenging! 

We also know of additional sites aiming to restart in the coming months so please keep an eye on our site map below for updates.

A BLUE icon on the map below indicates a site delivering face-to-face classes.

A RED icon indicates a site delivering virtual classes.

GREEN icon indicates a site that is intending to start over the coming weeks.

A GREY icon indicates a site that has not yet returned to delivering ESCAPE-pain classes. Some classes are paused whilst physiotherapy colleagues are supporting other services and most leisure sites are closed for face-to-face activity. We look forward to working with these sites to get classes back up and running, when the situation improves.

If classes are not yet an option in your area we would encourage you to use one of our digital support tools. ​

For any queries and support please contact us on hello@escape-pain.org

Once you have located a class you are interested in attending, we advise that you call the department / organisation that is running the class and ask what their referral pathway is. Some locations will allow you to self-refer while others will require that you are referred in through your GP.

Alternatively, you can email hello@escape-pain.org with your postcode and we will provide you with the details of any ESCAPE-pain for knees and hips classes being delivered near your location.
