Cost: £6 per session
Redhill NASS has been meeting for over 25 years and has an open door policy for all people with AS. Either contact the branch rep or just turn up on a Monday and join in our exercises.
We have members with experience of AS and the associated issues (iritis, colitis etc.) and we are happy to share our experiences with you if you just want to talk about your AS.
We meet every Monday (except Bank Holidays) between 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm to take part in a gym session run by one of our team of experienced physiotherapists.
The gym is situated in the therapies department of the East Surrey Hospital.
The sessions comprise a warm-up aerobic routine, followed by targeted exercises of stretches in a variety of situations (i.e. standing, sitting and on mats). There also can be circuits and ball exercises. All members work at their own pace, you will not be pressured to do anything you don’t feel you can do.
To attend these sessions, you should have been diagnosed in the UK as suffering from AS. At your initial attendance, you may be assessed by the physiotherapist in charge to ascertain your fitness to participate. There is a weekly subscription of £6 payable on the night.
We look forward to seeing you.
Please note that you must have a UK diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (Axial SpA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to attend this branch.
