Back to Action is an exercise programme designed for people with AS
It has been created by physiotherapists working with NASS and the exercise therapists and doctors who treat military personnel with AS at Headley Court.
It uses the most up to date knowledge from the fields of physiotherapy and sports medicine.
We have tried to make the programme as clear, straightforward and enjoyable as possible, so that you can use it in a gym or at home as part of your daily routine.
Back to Action Part 1
This programme covers mobility, cardiovascular, strength, flexibility and breathing exercises with additional information on other classes and sport as well as information about AS for trainers.
You can download our Back to Action App free from the Apple App Store. When you are searching in the App Store, make sure that you search under 'mobile apps'. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the android version of this app but hope to have it up and running as soon as possible.
