Ankylosing Spondylitis event

Posted onPosted on 31st Mar

An evening event about Ankylosing Spondylitis is open to the public on Monday, 7th April.

There will be presentations on the symptoms, diagnosis, medications and exercise led by Dr Maria Al-Deiri, consultant rheumatologist, with support from the therapy team and the National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society (NASS).

Ankylosing spondylitis is a type of chronic inflammatory arthritis that affects parts of the spine, including bones, muscles and ligaments.

Dr Al-Deiri said: “The aim of this event is to increase public awareness of the condition as patients tend to suffer for years until they get diagnosed”.

The event takes place from 6-8pm in Lecture Theatre 2, King’s Mill Hospital.
