Currently closed due to maternity leave

A group of like-minded people with AS who get together for hydrotherapy exercises led by an experienced physiotherapist with an interest in axial SpA (AS)

General warming up exercises, circuit based programme to include standing and floating exercises, cool down and stretches.

There is also time afterwards for anyone who wants to have a chat. Everyone works at their own pace.

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.

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.
