Enabling Self-management
and Coping with Arthritic Pain
using Exercise

Support tools

We have designed some support tools to help you continue exercising safely in your home, after you have completed the face-to-face ESCAPE-pain programme.


1. ESCAPE-pain website


The ESCAPE-pain website has internal pages which contain a library of exercise and education videos. To access these pages please register an account here or login to your existing account.

This section is particularly helpful if you just want to be reminded of how to do a particular exercise without being confined to the structure of the app/ESCAPE-pain Online which requires that you progress through and complete two sessions per week, for six consecutive weeks.


2. ESCAPE-pain app


The ESCAPE-pain app is a free resource produced in the NHS by the Health Innovation Network and Salaso Solutions Ltd. It is available on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. The app replicates the twelve sessions of the ESCAPE-pain programme and includes education and exercise videos.

For further information, see here.


3. ESCAPE-pain Online


ESCAPE-pain Online is the web-based version of the ESCAPE-pain app. It was developed so that participants can access the programme whether they are using a mobile phone, tablet or personal computer. It is best viewed on a computer and is especially helpful for those who would prefer to view the programme on a larger screen or those who don’t have access to a smart phone.

For further information, see here.

All the support tools are provided for reference only. They are not to be used as the sole basis for treatment, prescription and care of your condition and health. They should be used in conjunction with the advice and professional judgment of your GP or other healthcare practitioner.
