"I have a life again. I have the strength to do things I only dreamed off in the past."
It changed my life... My back had got so weak I was in constant pain when I lifted anything or did shopping or when a special needs child pulled out of me… the list is endless! Since using MedX I have a life again and have the strength to do things I only dreamed off in the past.

“My pace has improved, my hamstrings are freer and I feel confident during tackles and I played my first season of Senior football championship for my club”
I followed the 6 week Rehabilitation program on the MedX Core Spinal Fitness System at Brooklands after I had completed the DRX Spinal Decompression treatment. I felt my back was stable and stronger in a very short time. Now while playing football my pace has improved, my hamstrings are freer and I feel confident during tackles. Due to all this I played my first season of Senior championship for my club.

"Huge improvement in golf Swing!"
I am a very keen golfer and play 5 or 6 days a week. I suffered with low back pain and stiffness. I was crippled in the mornings or if I did anything at all. My pelvis was very unstable and after I had a few chiropractic adjustments with David Hickey he suggested I do the one month MedX program to stabilize my pelvis and strengthen my core. I felt an improvement straight away on the MedX and after the 12 sessions I had no Pain or stiffness and there were huge improvements in my game.
Because my back and stomach feel so strong I can hit the ball further, my strike has gained 30 - 35 yards without any added stress to my back. I can keep my arms straight at full swing without any strain on body. I couldn't do that before, I had to keep my forearms close to the body which was angling the direction of the ball unfavorably.
You can follow through when your back is strong, you dont need to put the break on to protect your back!

"No neck or backache even after a hard days work"
I had suffered from neck and back pain/discomfort due to my work as a dentist and a colleague recommended I use the MedX Core Spinal Fitness system. I enjoy the workout as you can feel the specific muscles being isolated and worked.
I was very impressed with the attention to detail in the supervised sessions and training. After having used the MedX for 6 weeks I can highly recommend the system, I feel fitter and stronger now and more importantly I have no neck or backache, even after a hard days work!

'Failed Back surgery, plus disc protrusion pressing on the left nerve root causing Sciatica'
The most important thing that resulted from my DRX treatment is that I do not concentrate on my limitations any more I can now do the things most people take for granted like running around with my young children. And to be able to achieve this in such a short space of time without missing a day off work has been remarkable.”

"Disc protrusion with referral pain to hamstring"
My back pain caused me problems in my work as a carpenter and when doing any form of sport. If I bent over while working even if only a few mins it would take me some time to straightened fully again and even to walk properly again because my back would seize up, feel tight and sore.
When lifting something I would get darts of pain across my lower back. In football I couldn't bend to pick up the ball and when running my back would get very tight and stiff.
After the DRX treatment Program all those symptoms were gone and I was pain free.
I then followed the 6 week Rehabilitation program on the MedX Core Spinal Fitness System at Brooklands under the same Advanced Backcare team. My back was stable and stronger in a very short time. Now while playing football my pace has improved, my hamstrings are freer and I feel confident during tackles.
Due to all this I played my first season of Senior championship for my club.

I was nervous about seeing a Chiropractor for the first time and had also heard that some chiropractors bring you back for multiple follow up sessions.
This was not the case at all at Brooklands. I was so impressed by David Hickey. His manner was so professional and polite, I felt very relaxed and comfortable in his care.
After taking my history, he assessed my problem, then spent time doing deep work into the muscles before using a very comfortable technique to realign my pelvis and spine. I felt so safe in his care and trusted him without doubt. He gave me home exercises to do and I have not looked back.
I felt so much taller when I left and freer and was pain free after 24hrs for the first time in 12 months. I have been sending my family, friends and work colleagues to him for the past two years and now they are sending their families and friends to David Hickey at Brooklands.
