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.
We are currently meeting for hydrotherapy every week but will move back to the gym as soon as it is available.
We are a self-help group providing support and encouragement to people living with axial SpA (AS) to exercise. We work together with The Great Western Hospital physiotherapy team to offer supervised exercise sessions every week. Both hydrotherapy and physiotherapy are on offer.
The physiotherapists work to regularly monitor and measure the benefits of exercising at our branch.
Please note that you must have a UK diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (Axial SpA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to attend this branch.
