Ankylosing Spondylitis

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.
