NASS Cardiff

Cost: £5 per session

We are currently running online stretch sessions every Wednesday at 19:30. Please contact us for more information.

We are a small group and always welcome new members.

The branch meet each week, but have alternate sessions of hydrotherapy and gym.

The branch also benefits from the support of the physiotherapy department at the hospital where daily hydrotherapy treatment is available if a flare up occurs, and also during the year intensive training classes of one or two weeks are organised by the department led by physiotherapists specially trained in the condition.

All sessions have a fully trained physiotherapist in attendance.  The hydrotherapy sessions include stretching and physical exercise, while the gym sessions also include cardio vascular exercise and circuit training using the extensive gym equipment.

All members exercise at their own pace and with their own capabilities.

Members find the opportunity to meet with and talk to others living with axial SpA (AS) especially valuable.

Regular appropriate exercise has been shown to slow down the progression of axial SpA (AS)

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