Do You Have Lower Back Pain?

Everybody Health & Leisure [Everybody] based in Cheshire East, are relaunching their ESCAPE-pain for backs programme on 27th February, at Congleton Leisure Centre and Macclesfield Leisure Centre.

ESCAPE-pain for backs is a rehabilitation programme designed to help reduce pain and disability for people with chronic lower back pain, through education and exercise.

Donna Williamson, Senior Health Innovation Manager at Everybody Health & Leisure, shares:

“We are delighted to share the ESCAPE-pain for backs programme will be relaunching within our facilities from February. The ESCAPE-pain for backs programme reduces pain, improves physical function and improves mental wellbeing, self-confidence and self-esteem. The weekly sessions give participants a chance to take part in a group exercise programme, weekly educational discussions on self-management & coping strategies and circuit style exercise classes, which are individualised and progressive to suit each individual’s needs.”

To access the programme, you must be 18 years and over, have no contraindications to exercise, independently mobile and able to carry out regular exercise and committed to taking part in a 12-week exercise programme, consisting of attending 2 classes per week for the initial first 6 weeks, followed by a further 6-week membership for unlimited use of Everybody’s leisure facilities.

On joining the programme, you will have a telephone consultation where Everybody Health & Leisure will take your details, discuss the programme and complete a questionnaire regarding your condition.
