Correspondent 27th Aug, 2019

A COURSE offering sufferers of long-term pain a chance for relief is to continue in Winyates next month.

‘Escape Pain’ is a national initiative for people with chronic joint pain and aims to reduce suffering, improve physical function, and reduce healthcare costs, as well as giving tips on how to control and live with pain.

The programme also offers coping strategies for those living with pain and a personalised exercise regimen.

One previous participant said: “Meeting others with similar pains has lifted my spirits and helped me to think more positively.” Another reflected on “some good ideas on how to control and live with pain”.

The course will run twice a week for six weeks, starting on September 3, at The Space, Winyates Centre.

The one-hour sessions will be held on a Tuesday at 1.15pm and Friday from 2.15pm.

The cost is £3.30 per session.
