Who we are
We have around twenty regular attendees including both men and women, all ages and abilities.
We are a warm and friendly bunch who have lived through the trials and tribulations of AS for many years.
We welcome new members with open arms and are willing to share our experiences with you and are here to lend an ear.
What we do
We currently run two groups. Depending on ability (and preference), a hydrotherapy session runs from 17:30 till 18:30, and gym session runs at the same time. This is followed by another hydrotherapy session from approximately 18:45 to 19:30.
All sessions concentrate on typical areas of weakness for people with AS and include exercises to strengthen core stability. Our sessions are run and overseen by skilled physiotherapists from Dudley's NHS trust who ensure that the sessions always have a fun element. In particular, sessions in the pool always end with a game.
How to find us
