World Arthritis Day

Wednesday 12th October 2016 was World Arthritis Day. Amid news that Robbie Williams suffers from arthritis, Flexiseq wanted to help raise awareness of the day. Over the past year we’ve spoken to a number of people with arthritis and, despite their stiff joints, aches and pains, they never fail to inspire us. So here, in one neat and tidy place, are all of the quotes and images we put out on #WorldArthritisDay to celebrate those living in the face of arthritis.

Testimonial Tuesday: Osteoarthritis

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Whether you lead an active sporting life or work in an industry that requires a lot of movement, osteoarthritis can get make everything that bit more challenging. Flexiseq is the drug-free wear and tear pain reliever to offer a fresh start in life. Here are five stories from those who found help in Flexiseq.

Lynn Fern

"Flexiseq has given me my life back. I have suffered from excruciatingly painful and debilitating osteoarthritis in my knees for many years. I’m using it five weeks and virtually all the swelling has gone from my knees, the stiffness has gone, and all the pain has gone. I am now able to walk properly and go up and down stairs and slopes without the need to hang onto anything — for the first time in years"

Chris Woodcock

"It's the only thing I've tried — and I've tried everything — that's worked. It's really very good. I have led a very active life, enjoying squash, skiing and golf, so arthritis has been a curse. But with Flexiseq the results have been astounding. I can now play a round of golf."
