The National Axial Spondyloarthritis Society
Who we are
NASS is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting anyone affected by ankylosing spondylitis (AS), an incurable, life-long inflammatory disease that mainly affects the spine. In severe cases, some or all of the joints and bones of the spine can fuse together. It is currently estimated over 200,000 people in the UK are living with the condition, and symptoms usually first develop in the late teens and early twenties.
NASS provides life-changing support to anyone affected by AS. We do this through a range of life-changing support including a range of publications, helpline and website.
Our local exercise groups also offer specialist physiotherapy and hydrotherapy at over 90 locations across the UK.
With your support, we can continue to be here for anyone affected by this incurable disease whenever we're needed.
