The information on this page is for anyone with axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) including people with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).
When you’re living with pain and fatigue it can be hard to make time to do your daily stretches. However, you don’t have to put on your trainers or go to the gym to stretch. These exercises can be fitted in around work, childcare or other commitments.
Together with a group of specialist axial SpA (AS) physiotherapists called AStretch we have developed a series of short videos that show you how to weave your stretches into your daily life. They include safely moving from lying to sitting and from sitting to standing. There are also videos showing you stretches for the sofa, kitchen, dining table and bathroom.
Thank you to Paul, Lyn, Theresa, Clint and Rob from NASS Southampton who so kindly agreed to be filmed, along with Monika, a NASS trustee.
Give them a try and let us know how you get on.
