Cost: £6 for hydro, £3 for gym (by monthly standing order)
We have the use of a new “state of the art” sports and leisure centre with large exercise spaces and a wonderful hydrotherapy pool which will accommodate twelve people.
Although our specialist physiotherapy staff are based at Chapel Allerton Hospital in Leeds, we have the advantage of meeting in a vibrant non-hospital environment with a full range of facilities.
In addition to our normal AS exercise sessions, the centre has a swimming pool and a huge variety of other classes. If you hold a Leeds Card, there is normally a discount on charges for these other activities.
Regular appropriate exercise has been shown to slow down the progression of axial SpA (AS)
Members find the opportunity to meet with and talk to others living with axial SpA (AS) especially valuable.
Members also have the opportunity to discuss any concerns they may be having with the supervising physiotherapist.
Please note that you need to have a UK diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis or axial spondyloarthritis to attend sessions.
