"I would like to start with the fact that I am extremely thankful to Xander for the support, guidance and care provided over the years. In late 2019, after suffering from continuous pain for over two months, I found Xander through a Groupon Voucher. When we started, I had 12 vertebrae twisted in my spine and most of this condition I was not even aware of as it was not painful at all. It is amazing in the process of working with Xander that he is always looking at the whole picture, taking into consideration all the aspects and diet, habits, and everyday life details. I must be honest, I was sure I would like to have the treatment with Xander not because of his qualifications or pricing or any other factors, but purely because I saw that he is extremely passionate about what he is doing. I thought if he is so passionate the question is not really if he is going to do the treatment on the best professional level or not, rather he is going to go deeper and deeper and not going to rest until eliminating all the elements causing the condition. It was clear that his working standards towards himself are so high that I can rest assured as I am in the best hands. It is a very rare and special quality. In addition to that, I have never thought I would gain such extensive knowledge of the human body, chiropractic care and prevention of problems as a well-built training was part of the treatment from occasion to occasion. I can state without any doubt that I know much more about how I can prevent the problems and have much more in-depth general knowledge about the human body and chemical, environmental, and physical effects than ever before. The progress we made over the initial months has been interrupted by the eruption of the global pandemic, but I was well equipped with the exercises I was carrying out daily to reduce the decay of my condition that I was able to travel for half a year in Mexico with a backpack without effecting my condition. Since everything reopened, I have regular check-ups twice a month making sure that my condition is monitored, in the meantime, I am carrying out all the activities of my life including dancing, swimming, and walking regularly. It is hard to express the feeling after a treatment; when you feel incredibly lightweight in your body meanwhile all your pain is gone and you are full of bursting, new energy. It is hard to explain, I suppose this is something you should experience yourself. Thank you very much for all your help"
"Joshua and Elliott were born premature and had several health issues, including issues with feeding, colic and sleeping difficulties. We were recommended by a family friend to see Dr Xander. We were welcomed and greeted very professionally and put at ease straight away. He listened to us carefully and started to interact with the boys, putting them at ease during their assessments. Both boys were giggling throughout. Soon after their first adjustments, we noticed they were both more relaxed, and little by little they started to feed well, sleep better, with no abdominal cramps. They still see Dr Xander regularly and love to to visit and interact with him. We recommend him to all families with children to see him. He is a miracle worker."
" I have been receiving treatment and guidance from Dr Xander since early 2013. I suffered from lower back pains and always felt dull pains and fatigue in the lower half of body. I work in a busy retail environment and have done so for the past 30+ years. My job has always involved physical activity and back pains were always a problem. When I started treatment with Dr Xander, I was sceptical it would work. I had heard lots of stories of it being wasteful and pointless. I decided to try for myself and I am so glad that I did. I started with some more intense sessions which made a difference almost straight away. I felt more agile and more energetic even when I was conducting activities which previously felt really difficult. Dr Xander gave me specific and tailored advice to my needs and my body which showed me the care, knowledge and level of experience he has. He helped me with adjustments and exercises to find the best way to reduce and remove the pains and fatigue I was suffering and enhance my abilities and movement. Thanks to Dr. Xander’s support, experience and the care he showed, I have the ability to do things that I would otherwise have struggled with. Things like playing with my grandchildren, being able to continue working and having the ability to enjoy my pleasures in life. Dr Xander has always been there to support in other ways too like advice on general fitness and health, which is always welcome and honest advice. Thank you for all the support so far and I look forward even more years of continued freedom and pain free activity!"
"What can I say about Dr. Xander? He’s an absolute life saver! I started seeing Dr Xander after I was struggling with pains in my upper and lower back and was also suffering from numbness in my legs. I was big into sport and was playing sports almost every day whether it was after work or during days off. I would suffer with consistent injuries and would just assume rest would sort them out. I was advised Chiropractic care by a friend who visited Dr Xander for similar issues and was really impressed by the progress they had made. I started chiropractic care in 2012 and I was immediately impressed with the Doctor’s knowledge and approach. Through a very short assessment Dr Xander was able to ascertain that I was making mistakes which were affecting my back and posture. Mistakes like putting my wallet in my back pocket and then sitting on it which meant manually adjusting my visions when driving. I mean how bad can that actually be? Well - Dr Xander showed me exactly the damage I was doing to my body. He gave me advice, adjustments and exercises which aided my ability to be more flexible and continue playing sports without getting injured. Dr Xander is not only the consummate professional, but has become a family friend. I am so excited to continue meeting with him to continue my journey in good health, but also to continue our really good relationship as friends! As always Doc, thank you for giving me opportunities, which I thought were beyond me with the care and support you provided!! I recommend ACW and Dr Xander for their professionalism, knowledge, expertise, and continuous support - second to none!"
"I started getting back pain during my pregnancy and I was unsure if Chiropractic treatment was safe in pregnancy. During my initial consultation Xander took the time to listen to my concerns and explained to me how the adjustments are adapted so they are safe for both mother and child. My daughter received adjustments from Xander when she was a baby. She was suffering from colic which was making her very unsettled and as a result not feeding well. After just a short session with Xander, her colic greatly improved."
"I started to se Dr Xander when I was pregnant with my twins. He could sense that I was sceptical about the treatment and very concerned that the treatment could hurt my unborn twins. He explained everything in detail and very professionally and the treatments were safe and so beneficial. My mid and upper back pain were gone and I was more active. I see Dr Xander twice a month and follow through with his recommendations and exercises and I am subscribed to his health classes online and find them very helpful and we interact as a family. We highly recommend him."
"I first met Dr Xander 10 years ago when I accompanied my brother to his appointment for his back and possible advice on a knee injury. I was impressed by Dr Xander’s gentle manner and his approach in addressing my brother’s concerns. I am a mum of 4 (3 at the time) and decided to do a little research on how Chiropractic could help my 6 year old toe walking son, where Orthotics had failed, I felt I had nothing to lose and booked an appointment. With a few adjustments and stretches done at home, my 6 year old was no longer toe walking. It was the best feeling for my son who was finally able to wear shoes bought from a shop instead of heavy weighted steal toe cap shoes. It definitely gave my son his freedom. I didn’t stop with my toe walker. My 2nd son had a stammer – but how could Chiropractic help? My 2nd son was very conscious about his speech and would only talk to me. Whenever we were out and about he would whisper all the while his jacket zipped right up to his chin and his hat down low you so people couldn’t see his eyes. We had therapy sessions at The Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children which helped but I felt my son needed a little bit more support. I’m not sure if Elda recalls that first trip to see Dr Xander, but my 3 year old son was ever so shy and as usual was whispering. Elda tried her sweet best to get a little hello to no avail. Again, Dr Xander was very gentle with my son and after a few adjustments I had been given a completely different child. The way I describe this experience is this – you know those sealed cans with the stuffed snakes that pop out when you take the lid off and you can’t, no matter how much you try, get those stuffed snakes back in – well this was our experience. Out popped my sons’ voice, laughter and confidence. My son is now 14 years old and even though he does not stammer anymore his speech is not as clear as it could be but it has not hindered his confidence in public speaking. I shouldn’t say this but he has always been the teachers favourite. My son was discharged from The Michael Palin Centre just before he turned 5 years old. Again, I didn’t stop with my stammering child. On to my daughter. When she was learning to walk she would take a few steps then fall, get up, take a few more steps, fall then get frustrated and give up. I watched her closely and noticed that her toe was pointing inwards and what was happening was she’d take a few steps then trip over the inward toe. I took her to the gp who then referred her to a clinic (I can’t remember which). The doctor there told us that her hips were rotated which is what caused the inward toe. My daughter would need to be assessed when she turns 8. My daughter couldn’t wait that long and i always thought “so what do we do in the meantime” as no support was given. So, I took it upon myself to book an appointment with Dr Xander. After 2 trips to see Dr Xander, my daughter was whizzing around her grandmothers’ dining table by the weekend. I honestly couldn’t believe what I was seeing. When my daughter was 6/7 years old she tripped in the school playground crashing into a tree where she fell and split her forehead. We went back to the GP and got re-referred to the clinic but there was nothing they could do. My daughter is now 12 years old and still has her struggles but she takes her time when she walks and that’s ok. My 4th child, and myself, thankfully didn’t have a real need for chiropractic treatment but we have had a few adjustments here and there and all is good. During the 10 years we have tried our best to maintain our chiropractic treatment and stretches at home. Dr Xander has also done his best to give us sound advice on how best to support our immune system which we have found extremely beneficial. We are forever grateful to have crossed paths with Dr Xander, he certainly has given us freedom to enjoy what so many take for granted – walking, running, speaking and our health. "
"I received a few sessions with Xander when my back condition was so bad following a fall that I could hardly walk, climb stairs, drive with our pain and couldn't sleep in bed. Quality of life was poor and pain relief and muscle relaxant medication was not providing any relief. I went to see Xander and had a few sessions. His testament helped me so much that I can now walk comfortably, drive long distances without stiffness or pain. I didn’t do follow up maintain sessions which resulted in a relapse of my symptoms just before I was planning to go on holiday. Xander fitted me in with an emergency appointment and he managed to correct the problem. I was able to take a long flight and enjoy my holiday. On return of my holiday I did the maintain sessions as previously advised by Xander and he has given helpful tips and exercises that I have continues to use and as a result have not had another relapse. Thank you Xander for helping me."
"I have been seeing Xander for maintenance and wellness care for the past 10 years. He is a total professional, always reassuring and putting me at ease when needed. He has a holistic approach to health which I truly appreciate, compared with the medical approach of wait and see or medications. I continue to see him even though I don't have any pains or symptoms, because I understand the importance of spinal and nervous system health. I wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone. No matter your age, anyone can benefit from Chiropractic care!"
"Service is non invasive, professional , efficient. Following adjustment treatments, I felt mild pain which self revolved itself in couple of days."
"I have been seeing Xander since 2010 at Finchley Back Care Centre. I was very sceptical at the beginning, because he took over from my previous Chiropractor who I had been seeing continuously since 2005. My main complaints were a L5 disc bulge, which used to make me bedridden for two months each year during winter time. This caused a tremendous amount of stress for my daughter, who had to learn to wash and bathe me since aged 10. Only after a couple of treatments with Dr Xander, he gained my trust and respect, and has been a complete life saver. I recommend Chiropractic and Dr Xander to everyone who suffers from back pain or disc bulges like myself, because it has been a complete a lifesaver. It will give you a better quality of life, without relying on painkillers, or surgery. I am 75 and feeling great. I continue to see him once a week for wellness care."
"I have been seeing Xander since 2010 at Finchley Back Care Centre. I had been seeing the previous Chiropractor in the centre since 2010 for wellness care. Both me and my wife were very impressed by his demeanor. My posture had been slowly worsening over the years, but with Xander's care and advice, we have managed to improve this greatly. I wholeheartedly recommend Xander. He is truly one in a million. He takes the time to listen to you (unlike the medics who just fobbed me off with painkillers and exercises with no follow ups). I continue to see him weekly and have done so for the past 12 years! I cannot recommend him highly enough. I am 81 and feeling amazing! Thank you Xander. "
"I suffered with debilitating back pain for almost 10 years until I was introduced to Xander. He diagnosed my problem, treated the condition and gave me a path back to normal life not having to worry if that horrible spasm would suddenly strike and make me bed bound for days. Xander has shown me how to keep my back healthy and his monthly health checks ensure that I remain problem free. Xander is much more than just a person who treats back pain. He is very knowledgeable and will advise me on a range of health issues."
"I have been seeing Dr. Xander van der Walt for treatment of lower back and neck pain. Although I will never be able to do at 83 years what I could at 23 years I can say that the treatment I have had by Dr Xander has given me a great deal of relief from pain that I have suffered for many years. Dr Xander has been treating me at his surgery and given me an exercise plan to do at home. I would say anyone suffering from back pain should definitely consider seeing Dr. Xander at his surgery in Hendon or a chiropractor near to their home."
