Exercise with Michael Slater
Take a look at cricketing legend, Michael Slater's exercise videos for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) courtesy of Arthritis Australia, produced in conjunction with the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
From Arthritis Australia:
"Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a disease which causes inflammation and pain in the spine and other joints. It affects up to 2% of Australians and is three times more common in men than women.
Michael Slater is one of our greatest cricketing legends, yet, behind the scenes, his career was all but the perfect over.
Slats, as he is affectionately known, has been living with AS since he was 18, a condition that saw him get bowled over time and time again."
