Roy Edwards - A New Art Movement

At 78 years old Roy Edwards doesn’t plan on letting his age get in the way of enjoying himself. Roy takes endless pleasure in his golf at Worplesdon Golf Club as well as spending time with his grandchildren. As someone who used to work in advertising, Roy found the cure to his increasing joint pains in a newspaper ad.

Feeling good for my age by…

Never really being a heavy drinker. Getting drunk never really appealed to me.


In my youth I was very active…

I played rugby, a lot of badminton and tennis but I was never really an athlete.

I stay young by…

Having grandchildren. My son has two girls, 11 and 8, and my daughter’s twins just turned 5 in February. We have a lot of laughs together.

My big hobby is…

 

Watercolor painting. I’ve recently moved on to Portraiture and Life Studies, so I can do portraits of my grandchildren. If my joint pain was really bad I’d struggle to hold the brush. I am learning at the moment and have recently moved to a new tutor, who is absolutely brilliant.

 


My joint pain manifested itself…

Through my golf grip. Anything that affects that is a problem, in either hand. I became aware of the fact that I had these irritating knuckle pains, it was obviously some form of osteoarthritis.


I found out about Flexiseq...

By complete coincidence through a newspaper ad. As a former ad man I tend to notice things that jump out. The ad had an offer so I took the coupon into the chemist and bought a tube. Nothing is expensive if it works. I applied it as the directions stated. After a few weeks I noticed things were improving. I couldn’t believe it.

Flexiseq really helps…

When it’s cold. I play golf in all weathers, in winter with my mitts on, absolutely frozen to death, the ball hitting the fairway hard and bouncing unbelievable distances.

I was amazed it…

Helped with trigger finger. I had to click my fingers back into position. Trigger finger can cause the knuckles to pop out of position. I know people who had operations on it, which of course gives you scar tissue. Some of them had surgery on it by a guy in France and it never worked. They spent a lot of money trying to fix the problem, I just used Flexiseq. I didn’t even know it worked on trigger finger, I bought it for the pains in my knuckles but since using it the trigger finger has gone.


Before Flexiseq I used…

A pain relief gel or painkillers. It helped with the pain but only in the short term. Now I have 100% movement in my hand and fingers without any pain.

I remember to use Flexiseq because…

If I don’t I feel pain in my hand and fingers. I remember to take it regularly, I take four different types of medication and quite often I’ll forget my diabetes tablets at lunch but I don’t forget Flexiseq because it’s always in my bathroom. It’s next to my toothpaste, I once made the mistake of mixing the two up.
