NASS Cornwall

The NASS Cornwall branch was established in early 2023 to provide a county-wide support group for those living with axial SpA. We aim to promote exercise, support and wellbeing for people with axial SpA across the county. Anyone who has a UK diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) or ankylosing spondylitis is very welcome to join us.

We are running three physiotherapist led hydrotherapy sessions across Cornwall every week.  If you are new to hydrotherapy and think doing it regularly may be beneficial, you are very welcome to join our mid-Cornwall sessions for a free taster before signing up.

On holiday in Cornwall and don’t want to miss your hydrotherapy? We welcome holiday makers to join us for hydrotherapy sessions at the mid-Cornwall locations.

For availablity and booking please contact Lizzy at cornwall.physio@nass.co.uk

If you’re in West Cornwall, we work closely with Harbourside physiotherapy who are a NASS affiliated group. They meet for hydrotherapy on Thursdays at 1500 and 1700 at Harbourside Physiotherapy, Newlyn, TR18 5AZ. For more information contact Beth at main@harboursidephysiotherapy.co.uk or on 01736 366224

As we’re a new branch our focus so far has been on providing hydrotherapy, however we have plans for an axial SpA health and wellbeing workshop in Autumn 2024, social events, and land-based exercise classes where there is demand.

We’re already finding that we are helping each other through our private Facebook group with ideas, shared experiences and offers of support. If you live in Cornwall please do follow us on Facebook (NASS Cornwall) so you can make contact with others and share information within the private group.  The Facebook group includes information and exercises from NASS.

We are a friendly bunch and we are keen to do whatever we can to help bring the axial SpA community together in Cornwall so we can help and support each other.   Do join us.
