Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an inflammatory arthritis where the main symptom is back pain. More than 200,000 people in the UK have AS. NASS is the only UK registered charity dedicated to AS and provides support, advice and information to people with the disease.
The NASS Bristol branch provides regular supervised hydrotherapy and gym sessions at Southmead Hospital. It also gives people the opportunity to seek advice and support from other branch members and from the experienced physiotherapists running the sessions.
The branch organises social evenings and our members often build lasting friendships within the branch and value the regular interaction with people who understand exactly what they are going through.
