What is the Joint Pain Programme? 

Our 12-week Joint Pain Programme aims to help those living with joint pain to live life to the fullest, with expert guidance and a bespoke exercise programme. You’ll have two sessions in small groups each week with a wellbeing expert in our gyms learning about the role of food, exercise, sleep and mental wellbeing in managing pain. You’ll have access to an extensive offering of online articles throughout the programme. You’ll also receive a free Health MOT at the beginning and the end of the programme to show your progress.


The programme is completely free and is open to members and non-members.



 

How do I apply to join the programme?

We’re now accepting applications for our Joint Pain Programme. If you’d like to apply you can have your GP practice or physiotherapist submit a referral for you, or you can refer yourself. We’re still rolling out the Programme across our network, so check the application form to find your nearest available site.

We'll contact you to let you know if you've been accepted based on clinical criteria, there may be a delay if a site is already full.



Why are we launching the programme?

As a trading charity, maintaining, promoting and advancing health is Nuffield Health's purpose.


8.75 million people have sought treatment for osteoarthritis. 

With an ageing population this is expected to rise.

1 in 6 people during their lifetime are affected in the UK.

And 1 in 3 people over the age of 45 have also been affected.

Osteoarthritis is the 2nd largest contributor to absenteeism.
