Injuries following car accident

Injuries following car accident

Following a serious car accident, we were all suffering with whiplash injuries, back pain and stiffness. Having chiropractic sessions at BritChiro has helped us all hugely - the whole experience is relaxing, professional and very calming. All three of my children attend the clinic to help them with their whiplash injuries - I wouldn't do this if I wasn't confident in the treatment they are getting. I absolutely recommend BritChiro.

Headaches, neck & shoulders

Headaches, neck and shoulders

I first went to BritChiro because I was suffering with headaches, neck and shoulder pain. The adjustments are never painful - I actually look forward to them because it means I will feel better afterwards! I hardly ever get headaches anymore, and my shoulder pain comes back only when I'm stressed. But I know when it does I can quickly get myself set right again. Since going I feel in such good health generally - I hardly ever get bugs and colds, and my chiropractor is more my GP than my actual GP! I would, and do, recommend them to everyone.


Tennis Elbow and Back Pain

Tennis Elbow and Back Pain

I was very sceptical initially but walked out upright and pain free on that first treatment over ten years ago. Totally amazed! I also used to get treatment for tennis elbow - I was in constant pain, now I very rarely get pain. I used to get a lot of congestion and sinus problems but Peter did some work on my neck and it gradually cleared up. When I was in a car accident a couple of years ago and had whiplash, I knew I had to go straight to BritChiro. Peter worked on me that very day and I got full movement again.

Chronic Back, Neck & Knee

Chronic Back, Neck and Knee Pain

Chiropractic treatment at BritChiro has been outstanding. It has totally changed my life and I now take no medication for my back at all. It sounds very dramatic but it's absolutely true. I had been on medication for about 20 years which is awful and I used to have to brace myself to sneeze! It was quite debilitating; for example not to be able to be in the car for long periods. Treatment is a little unnerving the first few times; it takes a lot of faith, but you just have to relax and trust the Doctor. If you can relax it's not painful and it doesn't hurt afterward either. 

Acute Low Back Pain

Acute Low Back Pain

I walked in with pain and no knowledge, all I wanted was the pain to be resolved and it was. From the first appointment I thought it was very professional as they took X-rays, which I thought was a good way to find out what the problem was. I now come on maintenance visits, which is not just about the lower back, it is a thorough look at the whole body and how it is working. You need to maintain your body just like you get your car serviced. I always feel - on the walk out - that I am once again standing up straight, walking correctly. 

Alan Farley, Building Services Manager, Horsham


Hips 'popping'

 Hips ‘popping'

My hips felt like they were ‘popping' after I had been sitting down. I came to BritChiro and had an x-ray of my back and it was broken in two places! I fell out of a tree last year and that is when I had done the damage. I was scared and shocked as I didn't want to give up dance! Dr Mitchell explained the course of treatment and for the next appointment my Dad came so someone else could understand what was happening - that was really helpful. My hips aren't popping as much now. I always thought Chiropractic was for old people but I would recommend it to my friends.

Back & neck pain, arm numbness

Back & neck pain, arm numbness

I am addicted! BritChiro has 100% cured me! I had very bad back and neck problems. I used to wake up every morning with very bad stiffness and painful knots. My mobility was starting to be restricted and I was getting numbness in my arms. Treatments at BritChiro are quick, easy and painless. The chiropractors are truly passionate and caring about your recovery and wellbeing. For me, treatment at BritChiro is as vital as healthy eating and exercise to maintain wellbeing. I don't wake up with stiffness or pain AT ALL any more. I absolutely love it.

Back Pain/Groin Pain

Back Pain/Groin Pain

I was recommended to come here by an eighty year old man in the village. He had had trouble walking and had gone from one to two sticks; then one day I saw him with no stick! I rang him and he told me he was coming to BritChiro. I had acute pain in my back, through to my groin and could barely walk. Peter diagnosed that the problem was with my hip which amazed me as that part of my body didn't hurt. I could barely walk because of the pain and was worried I would have to give up work. I felt instant improvement on my first treatment session.

Susan Eaton, Plant Nursery Worker, Wisborough Green

Acute Neck Pain/Spasm

Acute Neck Pain/Spasm

I thoroughly recommend BritChiro - I have had a serious neck problem for three years and it seemed the only option was surgery and my GP was advising me to consider changing my job as a midwife. Initially I was very sceptical and nervous but everyone at BritChiro was so welcoming. Peter has been fabulous, he is really lovely and I had a full and clear explanation of treatment. From the first treatment my neck was much easier - now I have no neck pain at all and have stopped taking painkillers. I'm so grateful I can now continue the work I love.

Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

I consulted BritChiro regarding lower back pain and pain when walking; I couldn't stand up straight and was leaning to one side. Dr Westergaard took an X-ray and when I saw the X-ray I could see that my spine was leaning to the right. I commented -that picture is how I feel!' Chiropractic feels like an instant result. People ask whether treatment hurts but it doesn't. I have seen three of the Doctors at the clinic and they have all been great - I feel confident in whoever I see.

Emily Marsden, Musician/Music Teacher, Horsham

Lower Back, Hips and Neck

Lower back, hips and neck

Expertise and total confidence... I started coming here ten years ago and haven't looked back since. What I like about Peter, is he tells it how it is. I am so grateful for the honesty and frankness and for not ever being fobbed off. The key to treatment for me is the X-rays - they really show where the problem is. The advice given is marvellous. I think if I hadn't come here I wouldn't be driving anymore because I couldn't turn my neck to reverse and I would probably be using a stick. 

Shirley Castleden, book-keeper and former groom, Southwater

Chest & Back Pain

Chest and Back Pain

I highly recommend Chiropractic treatment, whatever the problem is - I would have never thought that chest pain could have been sorted by a chiropractor but it has really helped me. I had a pain in my chest when I was breathing in addition to a lower back problem. The relief of not being in pain is great and I am so grateful not to be taking drugs that were not helping. 

Ann Saines, Retired Company Director, Ockley

Back & Neck Pain

Back and Neck Pain

Coming to BritChiro has been an excellent decision; it has changed my life and gives me the freedom of movement and that is worth its weight in gold. I can turn my head and carry things, which used to be pure agony. The clinic is a very friendly place and you are told exactly where the problem is and what can be done to help. It is a life changing experience and the treatment really, really works. 

Colin Baldwin, Retired Pilot, Haslemere


Neck & Arm Pain

Neck and Arm Pain

BritChiro is a very personal and highly tailored experience. I have developed a personal & trusting relationship with Peter. I was very sceptical about chiropractic; with an engineering background I felt that just metaphorically tapping something with a hammer and jiggling it about wouldn't fix anything. My hobbies are reliant on me being fit and without treatment I would no longer be able to continue doing the things I love. 

Brian Davies, Aviation Consultant, Itchingfield

Back Pain

Back Pain

Whenever I hear someone mention a bad back I say 'BritChiro is where you need to go! I feel better within myself; not just in my back but my general wellbeing has improved. I feel like an old lady when I walk up the steps to BritChiro and when I leave fifteen minutes later I feel ten years younger! I was extremely nervous on the first visit but Charlene is welcoming and calming, so she makes it a nice experience. 

Heather Holden, Deputy Retail Manager - Horsham

Pregnancy Pain & Slipped Disc

Pregnancy Pain and Slipped Disc

I had a slipped disk in my back & have had back problems ever since having my first son five years ago. When I was pregnant the first time my back kept getting worse and worse and after I had the baby it was awful - I was in absolute agony. I was hesitant about a third pregnancy because of my severe back pain the first two times. This pregnancy has been a million times better because I have been coming to BritChiro - I am amazed! Alex takes his time on every visit and makes sure I stay well - so now I'm not at all worried that I'm going to be in pain after I've had the baby. The treatment is gentle manipulation and I would definitely recommend it to expectant mums and newborns. 

Kathryn Edwards, Mum, Horsham


Foot Pain

Foot Pain

I am back to being able to play 18 holes of golf, whereas before treatment I wasn't able to even walk 9 holes - I had to have a buggy! Morten took an X-ray which showed that even though the pain was in the heel the problem was in the big toe. 

Belinda Martin, Grandmother, Rudgwick

Disc Prolapse/Lower Back Pain

Disc Prolapse/Lower back pain

I first came in 2001 with a prolapsed disc and severe lower back problems. At first I questioned everything and felt that it was a lot of money for 10 to 15 minutes of treatment, but I have come to realise that it is very, very effective. I have seen at least five different Doctors of Chiropractic in the clinic and have been impressed by the high level of professionalism of all of them. Having Chiropractic treatment has meant that I am not having to go down the surgery route. Thank you! 

Brenda Iles, Retired Magistrate and Carer, Horsham

Lower back, Leg & Knee Pain

Lower back, Leg and Knee pain

BritChiro is wonderful. It is so lovely to be able to go about life without pain and to garden without feeling my back. I come regularly for treatment. If the pain is very bad, you may have to come a few times a week but as the problem is eased the appointments become less frequent. I would encourage people not to just have one treatment - that won't solve the problem, you need to persevere. 

Pauline Law, Retired, Horsham


Hip Pain & Neck Pain

Hip Pain and Neck Pain

I had never heard of Chiropractic before coming to BritChiro - It has been a very satisfactory experience. Peter also instantly knew that I needed a hip replacement and referred me to get that done. The hip op. that he recommended was 100 percent successful. I still come to BritChiro for maintenance treatment - it has stopped the progression of my symptoms and kept me mobile and active for a long time. 

Jeremy Smith, Retired Banker, Slaugham

Middle Ear Pain

Middle Ear Pain

I was experiencing a really painful ear ache. I had my neck checked and this is where the problem was coming from as my neck was restricted. Once my neck was adjusted the ear ache went away. 

Sophia, Schoolgirl, Horsham

Leg & Knee Pain

Lower back, Leg and Knee pain

I started having pains in my legs and knee, and experienced something very painful, then I had Chiropractic treatment and basically a week after, I was completely fine. At first when I started, the treatment felt a bit awkward, but then it was just a click and it was all over. 

Vicky, School Girl, Horsham


Back Pain

Back Pain

BritChiro is a very pleasant place to come; everyone is very friendly. Treatment has made me feel more flexible and I am able to continue my gardening and am not restricted by my back at all now. I have been having back trouble since my twenties and always had a feeling of stiffness but I don't get that now. 

Carole Hall, Retired, Nuthurst

Back Pain

Back Pain

It has given me a life back. It enabled me to continue working until my retirement. I travelled overseas and I could not have managed the long plane rides or sitting at my desk without the treatment. 

Mary Corck, Retired Sales Consultant, Horsham

Headaches & Shoulder Pain

Headaches and Shoulder Pain

Charlene is marvellous; a little walking knowledge base! I was nicely surprised that I've gotten the movement back in my neck. The pain had stopped me from leading a normal life and it was exhausting not sleeping. I had stopped sport because of my shoulder. I can now do what I want to and I feel like doing it now! If I hadn't come here I would have continued to go to the GP and be on pain killers. Charlene is very approachable and has great tips that are invaluable, like the way I was holding myself and my neck. 

Ruth Shirley, Housewife, Horsham


Migraines

 Migraines

Since falling down some stairs I was suffering from horrendous migraines that sometimes lasted two weeks. By the second treatment the pain released and the pressure went from the back of my neck. Phil is amazing and explains things really clearly. On my first appointment I had such a horrendous headache that it didn't sink in but for my second appointment I had my mum with me and he explained it all again. On every appointment he explains what he is going to do and why. 

Rebekah George, Dental Nurse, Cuckfield

Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

I was limping around - unable to walk without pain and hadn't been able to sleep for 2 months when a lady at the stables told me I should try BritChiro. I was slightly nervous on the first visit but quickly felt at ease with the doctor. My X-ray showed that curvature of my spine was trapping the nerve. By the end of the first week of treatment I felt much better. Dr Philip Mitchell is a very nice gentleman. I now come every 6 weeks for maintenance - to keep everything in order.

Derek Crisp, Retired Heavy Goods Driver, Roffey

Neck Stiffness & Dizziness

Neck Stiffness & Dizziness

I had been to the GP for dizzy spells and had blood tests for all sorts of things. As I also had a stiff neck I decided to come to BritChiro. The Doctor of Chiropractic took x-rays and after a full examination explained the nerve-supply to the ear was pinched causing the dizzy spells. Once I started treatment the dizziness went away really quickly. The explanation behind the science has been excellent. I love to exercise and I now have a much better understanding of my body and how to best use it. 

Kathryn Vince-Odozi, Loxwood


Shoulder, Arm & Back Pain

Shoulder, Arm and Back Pain

I had always thought Chiropractors just treated backs but they were also excellent at sorting out my shoulder and arm when I recently overdid the chainsaw work. The Doctors at BritChiro are great, it doesn't matter who you see, the treatment is always effective and all the doctors are very friendly. I was quickly so impressed I sent my wife, Jenny, to BritChiro and she has also had good results from the treatment after experiencing neck pain following a traffic accident. 

Chris Petrie, Handyman, West Chiltington

'Aches & Pains'

'Aches & Pains'

It works for me. Peter finds my weak spots and he keeps me going! I am still driving and gardening which I can thank the treatment for. 

Ron Banister, Retired from Inland Revenue, Horsham


Neck Pain

Neck Pain

When I came to BritChiro I could only move my neck 10 degrees to the right and 15 degrees to the left. Morten said 5 vertebrae had hardly moved for about twenty years, due to arthritis. I like that Morten tells the truth and the cost of treatment is advised from the first treatment visit. I now have much more movement in my neck, I no longer have pins and needles in my hands and my driving life has been extended. I've recommended BritChiro to my customers. 

Edward Hill, Retired Business Owner, Horsham

Body felt 'tied in knots'

Body felt 'tied in knots'

I have walked into BritChiro feeling like I am tied up in knots and as though I am in two or three pieces. After an adjustment at BritChiro, I feel an immediate release - a ‘letting go' feeling - a relaxation through my whole body. I feel one person again, complete. Sometimes I walk out as though I am walking on air. The best night sleep is always after I have had my fix with BritChiro. 

Toni Crosdil, Dressage rider, Southwater

Preventative Care

Preventative Care

I have had Chiropractic checks and adjustments all my life to keep my spine working well. I feel great and hardly ever have a day off school or sport. 

Louis, Schoolboy, Hove


Lower Back & Knee Pain

Lower Back and Knee Pain

I have total confidence and complete faith in Morten. Chiropractic frees up your body to do what it's supposed to do - function properly. I now have the confidence to do the things I love - to walk and swim - and I'm not afraid to be active like I was in the past due to fear of pain. I now get very little pain and I have a place to go if it does flare up and that's reassuring. Everyone at BritChiro is very professional - it's a relaxed and welcoming environment and I have recommended a lot of people. 

Lusie Ambler, Retired Research Bio-Chemist, Wisborough Green

Leg Pain

Leg Pain

My Chiropractic treatment has been very good. The leg pain was very painful in the beginning - I was limping around. After three weeks of treatment I started to feel a lot better and my leg is much better now. I have seen several of the Chiropractors at BritChiro Clinics and they have all been very good. I come to the clinic so I can keep being as active as I can be - so I can enjoy my ten great-grandchildren. 

Evelyn Brooks, Retired, Horsham

Chest & Shoulder Pain

Chest and Shoulder Pain

My chest had become constricted and my GP just wanted to prescribe medication so I came to BritChiro - I wanted to find out the cause of the problem, not just mask it with pills. I have been impressed with what has happened as a result of my treatment; I have always been very active and have started to get my life back again. I have been impressed with the receptionists and the flexibility of the BritChiro team. When I recently developed a shoulder problem, I knew where to go. 

John Tong, Retired CEO of Timber Importing Company, Horsham


Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

I was having increasingly severe lower back pain due to driving long distances and manual labour on the weekends. It was becoming really debilitating - the painful episodes were becoming more frequent and longer and beginning to restrict my movement and made me grumpy! BritChiro is great - it is very convenient and friendly and treatment has restored my life so I now do all the things I used to do - including long distance driving and gardening. 

Simon Harrison, Health & Safety Officer, Rudgwick

Pelvic Pain - ski accident

Pelvic Pain - ski accident

Morten helped me with the GP process by referring me for an MRI - he helped me with an action plan to speed up the process by at least 3 months. The experience of coming to the clinic is excellent; very welcoming and professional. Chiropractic is not a quick fix - it is more of a lifestyle, a commitment to maintaining my wellbeing. I keep coming and I'm not hurting at all. Morten has even given me the confidence to start running again. 

Jenny Hughes, Hairdresser, Southwater


Hernia, back, elbow & shoulder

Hernia, back, elbow and shoulder

I have been coming for over ten years now and the Chiropractors have worked on practically every bit of me and now I see him for my hernia. Chiropractic treatment is not painful - just a little pressure during treatment. Coming to the clinic keeps me supple for my gardening - I think it's ridiculous to live in pain - if you can do something about it by trying something new then you should. I will keep coming as long as I can get myself to the clinic. 

Iris Rees, Retired, Dorking

Back Pain

Back Pain

Treatment at BritChiro has been absolutely amazing - I was in excruciating pain and could hardly walk when I came in and I could walk out on my own! Everyone is very caring and will see me no matter what - even if I haven't been for a while. When I'm happy and well, everyone at the clinic is happy to see me feeling better. You're nothing without your health. It is worth every penny because if you have your health then you can have a life. 

Marion Bicknell, Retired Licence Conveyancer, Southwater

Back Pain

Back Pain

I was in the garden and lifted something wrong and ended up not being able to move. The first time I came here they relieved my pain and I felt better. I went for a year without treatment, then had further problems so lately I have been coming on a regular basis and since then, I haven't had any serious problems - I'm 69 and I really don't feel it and I want to stay that way! Chiropractic treatment is actually very relaxing - you don't think about the occasional popping and cracking, you really come to trust and rely on them. It has been a really good experience. 

Jeff Hall, Retired Quality Assurance Manager, Horsham


Neck, Shoulder & Arm Pain

Neck, Shoulder & Arm Pain

I trapped a nerve in my neck by lifting something too heavy. I had a lot of pain all the way down my shoulder blade and into my arm and was unable to function in my work. BritChiro has been the only place to fix the problems that I was having in my neck - I've been to an osteopath and for this particular problem they didn't help, I also saw the GP who gave me painkillers and sent me to the hospital, where I was on a waiting list – so I took it into my own hands and came here. Morten explained that if I'd waited longer, it would have been even harder to fix and may have meant an operation. I'm not going to say Chiropractic doesn't cost money but it's a good investment for my own health. 

Dave Baxter, Events Manager, Cowfold

Neck Pain

Neck Pain

Since coming to BritChiro, I have new energy and I feel like I'm living in a new world. I have found all of the BritChiro team to be very sympathetic to my condition, which is something you can't take for granted. As an accountant I am very careful with money and BritChiro is good value for money. I would say it has been a very good investment for me - the return being good sleep, more energy and being pain free!

Victor Brown, Retired Accountant, Southwater

Trapped Spinal Nerve

Trapped Spinal Nerve

It's not too much of an exaggeration to say that treatment at BritChiro has given me my life back. My husband and I now drive about 80 miles to come and see Charlene and I wouldn't do that for anybody! I have seen several different Chiropractors at BritChiro and they have all been wonderful. I can now walk and that was something that I couldn't do in the past. I would always make a Doctor of Chiropractic my first choice.

Margaret Pemberton, Retired Senior Management, Hythe, Kent


Back Pain

Back Pain

I had been attending osteopaths and other chiropractors for back pain for years but none had ever taken x-rays but pulled me and twisted in all directions. The x-rays taken at BritChiro revealed that my lower back was out of line and over a period of 4/5 weeks gentle adjustments were made to my spine 2 or 3 times a week getting everything back into line and then further treatment to get my back stable. Then the appointments reduced to weekly and will eventually become monthly maintenance appointments. I now have full movement again and can nearly touch my toes!!!

Seeing a vast improvement in my overall wellbeing I recommended my wife visit BritChiro as she had been complaining for many years of pains in her neck, shoulders and right arm. We both now wish we had come to BritChiro many years earlier as we would not have endured the aches and pains that have plagued us for years and now feel much better prepared for retirement. 

Brian O'Connell, Chairman of Horsham District Council

Leg Pain/Sciatica

Leg Pain/Sciatica

I started to feel pain in my left leg, which got worse as the weeks passed until I couldn't walk at all. My husband took over dog walking duties, leaving me feeling miserable at home.

My GP diagnosed sciatica, prescribed strong painkillers and authorised treatment by an osteopath, which did not go very well, and in my desperation I rang BritChiro.

Dr Robert Viney took two series of X-rays, assessed my spinal damage and began my treatment there and then, no waiting. It was all very positive, exactly what's needed in such a situation.

I started off with three appointments per week, a lot of adjustments had to be made, and as the spinal damage started to repair itself, the appointments became more spread out. Treatments are now every two weeks, a pain free future is within my grasp, achieved without taking any harmful drugs and my dog and I are out walking again, every day, enjoying each other's company, looking forward to Spring and loving the beautiful forest.

Helga Parker, Retired, Brockenhurst
