An arthritis sufferer from Harrogate is hailing the success of a scheme which aims to get people active.

 

'Escape Pain' is a nationally recognised rehab programme helping those with chronic pain.

Chronic joint pain, or osteoarthritis, affects one in five of the population over the age of 50 and one in two over 80. 

After suffering arthritis in her knees, Jill Quinn attended the sessions which she claims has turned her life around.

Osteoarthritis: Facts and figures (information from Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science network)
