Who are the MCA?
We are a leading professional association representing Chiropractors practising in the UK and overseas. The MCA has had a long association with Bracknell Ice Hockey in the past and were title sponsors for the Bracknell Hornets NIHL1 Ice Hockey Club for several seasons up until the Bracknell rink closed in 2020. We are very proud that MCA president, medic and chiropractor, Berni Martin, has provided medical and chiropractic support to ice hockey teams for many years including Bracknell juniors, the Hornets, Wasps and of course the BEES! We are therefore very excited about this new Platinum Partnership and very much looking forward to the 2022/23 season. Look out for McTimoney Chiropractors on our Match Night Sponsorship nights to learn more about chiropractic and get a free spinal check!

From the Bees Directors:
“We are delighted to have the MCA on board as a platinum partner. Not only does this add further stability to the club financially but the MCA’s work (delivered by Berni) on and off the ice is a vital part of managing and looking after the players over a long season. We are looking forward to building on this partnership in the coming months and years”

MCA CEO, Liz Carson said:
“We are proud of our history and close ties with the National NIHL TSI World Bees Ice Hockey Club whose values and strong sense of community match our own. MCA President Berni Martin is the medical lead for the Bees providing chiropractic and sports injury care to the players in addition to providing first response medical assistance rink-side for any on ice injuries during their matches. Chiropractors play an important role in professional and elite sport globally, so we are delighted that the Bees continue to invest in their future success with the continued inclusion of a McTimoney trained chiropractor as an integral part of their team. For MCA members this brings a wealth of sport related opportunities to invest in their own development in the field of sports chiropractic.”

MCA President Berni Martin said about the Platinum Partnership:
“I am absolutely delighted about this new partnership. I have worked with the Bees since the Spring Cup of 2021 providing medical and MSK support. This new partnership with the Bees recognises the significant role chiropractic can bring to sport. I am really looking forward to the coming season and being part of the ‘buzz’ again!”

The MCA is delighted that we will also be sponsoring Player #88 Josh Martin!

Why Chiropractic?
Chiropractors focus on the spine and the musculoskeletal (MSK) system and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and performance. Chiropractors are trained to assess the musculoskeletal system and identify restrictions, imbalances and dysfunction. Our package of care involves spinal and peripheral joint adjustments and mobilisations, application of soft tissue treatment and advice on exercise, self-help, diet and lifestyle where appropriate. Many chiropractors focus their practises in specific areas such as sport, paediatrics, pregnancy, elderly and even animal care. A package of chiropractic care may be used regularly to help maintain good posture, promote health and improve performance, no matter what it is you do, from a high performance athlete to a senior member of the community enjoying a potter in the garden. Are you looking for a safe and natural solution to back, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, headaches and migraines, or sports injuries?  Then you have come to the right place. Search for a McTimoney Chiropractor here!
