NASS Birmingham

Cost: £5 per session or £20 per calendar month.

Free parking on the Bristol Road outside the hospital or you can use the large pay for use car park in the hospital grounds (same walking distances to pool therapy). The pool is located in the old part of the hospital, and is adjacent to the Bristol Road.

We run two 45 minute sessions of physiotherapy and two of hydrotherapy each week. Both are led by fully qualified physiotherapists and include a mix of stretches and gentle Pilates/yoga/physiotherapy exercises.  Our members find this mix particularly beneficial.

Our physiotherapist adapts the land-based exercises to meet the needs of every attendee. The session is enoyable and fun.

Our hydrotherapy pool, is heated and has a slope with a shallow end of approximately 1m and a deeper end of approximately 1.2m. It’s large enough for sessions of up to 10 people. The physiotherapist leading the session will ensure it’s suitable for all.

You can choose whether you want to start with hydrotherapy or physiotherapy.

Please note that you must have a UK diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (Axial SpA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to attend this branch.
