Event description

Description

Escape Pain is a Health Innovation Network initiative helping patients to cope with Hip and Knee arthritic pain. This involves exercise and information dissemination in group sessions to decrease fear and increase activity. Currently, in most parts of the UK, there are clear pathways and treatment plans when surgery is considered for arthritic pain. However such clear pathways are not always present when patients do not require surgery or are being treated non operatively. This lack of a clear pathway, for non operatively treating patients, increases their disability and pain. Unfortunately, this will also increase the need for surgical intervention. Escape Pain (for Hip and Knee Arthritis) hopes to bridge this gap and provide that service.

This program has been run in London for many years and has achieved considerable sucess. http://www.escape-pain.org/. The first course at Southport will commence on 10/04/2018 for 6 weeks. It is a one hour contact session every Tuesday and Friday between 2:15 PM and 3:15 PM. Though we are endeavoring to obtain NHS funding, currently it is a private initiative.

The dates for the 2nd course are as follows

Week 1 - 10/04/2018 (Tuesday), 13/04/2018 (Friday)
Week 2 - 17/04/2018 (Tuesday), 20/04/2018 (Friday)
Week 3 - 24/04/2018 (Tuesday), 27/04/2018 (Friday)
Week 4 - 01/05/2018 (Tuesday), 04/05/2018 (Friday)
Week 5 - 08/05/2018 (Tuesday), 11/05/2018 (Friday)
Week 6 - 15/05/2018 (Tuesday), 18/05/2018 (Friday)
