People often ask how I ended up being a Chiropractor.
Well, I grew up down here in Eastbourne and was always fascinated by how the body worked. How the brain controlled everything and sent signals to your arm to move it, or co-ordinate muscles to walk, and I was amazed. From a young age I decided that I wanted to be a Doctor of Chiropractic because I wanted to help as many people as possible, and learn as much as I could about how the body worked.
At the age of nine I took up karate and this further developed my interest in the body and what it was capable of. I achieved my black belt at the age of 15 and have since taught children and adults and competed at European level. I have trained with many teachers from around the world and I have seen things that you wouldn’t think possible of an 86 year old. This taught me that the body can be trained and tuned to perfection to give maximum function for the longest time.
Chiropractic was introduced to me by a friend of my mother’s. I had suffered from back pain for some time, often aggravated by sports injuries, but it was starting to prevent me from using my body to its full capacity. I had sought help through my GP and various others but no one could provide me a solution to the problem. I was seen by a Chiropractor and was impressed with the treatment and the results. The chiropractor’s understanding of the body was fantastic. After reading more about chiropractic, I decided that this was for me.
I trained at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic for four years fulltime and graduated with a Masters in Chiropractic. I began work in Chelmsford where I took a keen interest in posture and took up extra reading and seminars to further develop this. In 2013, I decided that it was time for change.
Lushington Chiropractic is everything that I want from a chiropractic clinic and works on the same core values that I have. Everyone is welcoming and I am so happy to be working here with them to help as many people as we can.
How I Can Help You
Not all chiropractors are the same. My three philosophies are Be thorough; Get results; Care for people.
You’ll need to be prepared to spend up to an hour on your consultation. I know that’s longer than some chiropractor’s in Eastbourne but in my experience it’s well worth doing things really thoroughly from the outset.
I want to get you better, helping your body to heal – fast and effectively. There’s no miracle cure, but I’m regularly taking extra courses, discussing cases with colleagues and developing my techniques to improve. I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist and that shows in my chiropractic practice too. I love helping people with complicated cases.
Care for people
I’ll adapt your treatment to suit you and your particular needs. As part of your chiropractic consultation, I’ll ask you what your main goals are: fast pain relief; long-term maintenance; self-help back care advice etc. I can then focus your chiropractic treatment to meet your personal goals.
I’m also happy to choose chiropractic techniques that you prefer. For example, some people don’t like the clicks with chiropractic, so I’m able to use other chiropractic techniques to suit you when needed.
There are a few chiropractors in Eastbourne, with different reputations. I believe my and Lushington Chiropractic’s reputation is reflected in these comments that I’ve taken from some Google Reviews my patient’s kindly left me.
Chiropractic Eastbourne Patient Testimonials
” I am 25 years old suffering (back pain). The pain has been unbearable, it’s even meant I’ve had to rely on morphine. I’ve been a patient at Lushington Chiropractic for just two months Eastbourne and have been seeing Mykel Mason.
He’s been great. Treatment has helped so much. Now I find myself without the (pain) after just 4 sessions (which I have had for 8 months) and also not having to take the morphine tablets anymore. For any back problems I highly recommend Lushington Chiropractic. I was recommended by my cousin. I’m just 25 😁and for any young people experiencing any problem or even just want a simple check-up. Look no further as you will not find a better clinic in East Sussex with a genuinely concerned chiropractor.”
