A NATIONAL pain relief programme is launching this month at Redditch’s Abbey Stadium.
The free 6-week programme helps people with chronic pain and integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen individualised for each participant.
The course will run twice per week for six weeks starting from September 13.
The sessions are aimed at people who are retired or off work due to joint problems and will be run on Wednesdays and Fridays, 11am to 12pm, at the Abbey Stadium.
You do not need to be a member of the gym to access this course.
Coun Joanne Beecham, whose portfolio covers health and wellbeing, said: “Joint pain can be incredibly debilitating, affecting individuals both young and old.
“This specialised course is designed to equip participants with the essential self-management techniques they need to regain a more active life with reduced reliance on medication.”
Leader of the Council, Coun Matt Dormer, added: “I’m pleased we are able to work with Rubicon Leisure to expand the reach of the escape pain course.
“The transformations we’ve witnessed in past participants is testament to the value of this programme, and I hope many more can benefit from this new session at Abbey Stadium.”
