NASS Cornwall is a new group 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 starting by organising regular 30 minute hydrotherapy sessions run by a specialist physiotherapist. Sessions will be expanded on demand. We will also be arranging stretch and gym sessions led by physiotherapists with a good knowledge and understanding of axial SpA.
For those of us wanting to meet other members and enjoy group support, we will be holding ‘Coffee, Cake and Catchup’ get togethers.
We’re already finding that we are helping each other through our private Facebook group with ideas, shared experiences and offers of support. Do follow us on Facebook so you can make contact with others and share information within the private group. TheFacebook group 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 axialSpA community together in Cornwall so we can help and support each other. Do join us.
