South Essex Branch of NASS has the benefit of both a gym and hydrotherapy pool.

We have a good average weekly attendance of ± 15 members and exercising is carried out in a very friendly atmosphere.

We have hydrotherapy every week, where the emphasis is on stretching exercises, overseen by a trained physiotherapist. Gym sessions also take place every week, also under the guidance of trained physiotherapists.

There are lots of cardiovascular and stretching exercises , with other gym equipment available for use under supervision.

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