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.

Our members are both men and women of varying ability, age.

Our physiotherapists are very experienced in the management of AS and are committed to the group. Our members are encouraged to exercise to their maximum potential in a friendly, supportive and approachable environment.

We run a weekly session covering both land-based and hydrotherapy exercises.

Sessions are split into two groups of 40 minutes each, most members attend both sessions, while others choose to do a singe session, depending on their needs and other commitments. Each session is led by a qualified physiotherapist. All new members will be given a warm welcome.

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