Persistent Physical Symptoms… | NHS Physical Health Psychology Cumbria

ESCAPE-Pain Android 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 Android smartphones, and tablets. It complements the well-established face-to-face programme that prior to lockdown was being delivered in over 290 sites across the United Kingdom.

The ESCAPE-pain app is intended to be used as a support tool for people who have already attended the face-to-face programme and serves as an aide memoir to enable participants to continue to exercise safely in their homes afterwards. The app also helps people access the programme if they are unable to attend a class or don’t have a class nearby.

Please note:

  • ESCAPE-pain Online is a support tool, provided for reference only. It is therefore not to be used as the sole basis for treatment, prescription and care of your condition and health. It should be used in conjunction with the advice and professional judgment of your GP or other healthcare practitioner. ESCAPE-pain Online and the ESCAPE-pain app are not interlinked therefore your username and password only apply to that tool for which you have created your details and can’t be used interchangeably on both systems.
  • ESCAPE-pain Online is not able to recognise if you’ve previously attended a face-to-face ESCAPE-pain class.
  • If you would prefer to not use a structured programme you may prefer to have a look at the stand alone videos from ESCAPE-pain Online. They are freely available here: exercise videos and educational videos.
