About Manitoba Ankylosing Spondylitis Association
The Manitoba Ankylosing Spondylitis Association (MASA) is a non-profit, regional organization located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It acts as a collective unit on behalf of patients in Manitoba who have ankylosing spondylitis, a progressive inflammatory disease that typically becomes evident during early-to-middle adulthood. The disease is characterized by stiffness and pain of various joints in the spine and limbs. Founded in 1990, MASA supports, advises, and lobbies for assistance for patients with this disorder.
