About Ankspon. Making arthritis relevant to you.
First and foremost, welcome to Ankspon and thank you for taking the time to visit our site. We genuinely hope you find something useful from your time here.
Ankspon is a dedicated community for people with Arthritis. Our mission is to help people with arthritis keep healthy & active whilst being part of a community for sharing advice & experiences with millions of others.
Getting you discounts
Through having an active community, we would also like to engage with brands, sports clubs, activity centres and membership services to bring discounted service to you.
We strongly believe that an arthritis diagnosis does not mean you can’t live a full and active lifestyle, whatever your age. That’s why we also provide highly informative advice and opinion pieces targeted specifically at different age groups on best practice and lifestyle changes that can improve your quality of life.
We know there is often a stigma and challenge for all age groups to talk about their arthritis problems and find a community relevant to them. Much of the advice and lifestyle considerations from medical bodies are often generic and address the condition as a whole, rather than being targeted at specific age groups. Ankspon is fully committed to filling this gap, whilst raising awareness about the disease.
We are obliged to let you know that we are of course not offering medical advice and always recommend consulting your GP or Specialist.

Don’t worry, we knew this question might come up…
With Arthritis typically a gloomy, and let’s face it, slightly dull subject, we decided to put a quirky take on it. Ankspon is simply short for Ankylosing Spondylitis!
