Physical branch meetings are currently cancelled due to COVID-19. However there are virtual activities being run by some branches. Please contact your local branch for more information.

We hope you find the information on these pages helpful. Our team is working tirelessly to provide up to date advice in relation to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. Record numbers of people are now turning to NASS for support, and we hope to be here for everyone. Our helpline and advice service are only possible thanks to donations from people like you.

If you are able to make a donation to NASS today, we'd be so grateful.


NASS Manchester

Cost: £2 per session

We are a group of around 10 people who are guided by a team of two physiotherapists with an interest in axial SpA (AS)

We warm up with a little exercise for about 20 minutes and then for the next 40 minutes with stretches.  We round it off for those who like a laugh with a game of bad volleyball.

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 have with the supervising physiotherapist.

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