You may have noticed recently that there are some new faces at Lushington Chiropractic in Eastbourne. One of our new faces is the lovely Dr Gemma Crouch, a fantastic Chiropractor who specialises in pregnancy and paediatrics. One of the obvious things about Gemma is how passionate she is about chiropractic, so we thought it would be an excellent idea to sit down and have a chat about all things chiropractic and learn more about her!
Hi Gemma, thanks for agreeing to be interviewed. How are you settling into life at Lushington Chiropractic?
I love working at Lushington Chiropractic in Eastbourne. It’s so nice to work alongside a team of friendly, warm and caring individuals, as well as being able to work alongside other practitioners who are from a multi-disciplinary background. I find that my patients from Eastbourne benefit greatly from seeing massage therapists, acupuncturists and other practitioners within the team.
So why did you choose to move to Eastbourne?
Whilst I was practicing chiropractic I had a fantastic opportunity to come and visit Lushington Chiropractic clinic here in Eastbourne and observe many of the practitioners who work here. As soon as I came to Eastbourne and saw the clinic I knew that it was the right clinic for me to work in. Being so close to the sea really resonates with me and I am looking forward to exploring more of Hailsham, Hastings and the surrounding area.
So how did you first get into chiropractic?
When I was younger, my mother always used to take me to see a chiropractor with my brother. I was always fascinated by the gentle chiropractic care as I was really interested in the human body and its function. When I was at university in Bath, I was training for my first half marathon and started to get quite severe low back and leg pain and was struggling to do any sports or training. As a sports person this was quite frustrating for me, as I was quite fit at the time. I saw many different people about my problems but never seemed to get many results and was even told that my problem could not be sorted. My Mum told me to go back to my chiropractor I had seen as a child to see if she could help me. I am so glad I listened to my Mum because within a couple of visits time the chiropractic care I was receiving had resolved my symptoms. From this point onwards I decided to pursue a career in chiropractic as my goal was to help other people like chiropractic helped me.
What inspired you the most about the first chiropractor you saw?
The first chiropractor I saw was very warm, gentle and caring about me as a person, especially as I was a young child when I first went to see her. She always listened to me and my family and always gave us the best healthy and chiropractic advice. I saw her for many, many years especially as a teenager when I was at university and it was actually her and the chiropractic treatment, which inspired me to become a chiropractor myself. I guess the inspiration came when nobody else was able to help me with my problem and she was able to tell me exactly what was going on and the root cause of that problem.
What do you enjoy most about being an Eastbourne Chiropractor?
Since I moved to Eastbourne and worked at Lushington Chiropractic I have been able to experience how friendly Eastbourne is as a town and been able to experience the community feel, which I am sure the local residents would agree with me. Eastbourne is a great place because it has a lovely seaside and is very close to the Downs, so you’ve got beautiful scenery, as well as lovely people. Overall, being an Eastbourne chiropractor has been very satisfying so far and I am looking forward to knowing Eastbourne even better over the coming months and years.
That’s all we have time for in part 1, but come back for part 2 where we will discuss more about Gemma’s specialisation – pregnancy and paediatric chiropractic.
