Time to put your back into your healthcare!

Back pain is one of the most common reasons for visiting the doctor. In fact, it’s estimated that four out of every five adults (a whopping 80%) will experience back pain at some point in their lives. So what are the causes and what can we do about it?

Some of the reasons are quite obvious: bad posture; prolonged periods of time using computers or tablets; carrying heavy loads. Other contributory factors are less obvious, such as not drinking enough water and not eating the right foods.

Put your back into your healthcare
Put your back into your healthcare

The good news is that there are some simple things we can all do to help ourselves . . .

Here at Lushington Chiropractic, we have these top tips to help people look after themselves:

  • If you work at a computer, take regular stretch breaks; ensure you sit correctly and that your workstation is ergonomically right for you.
  • Take care when lifting – whether you’re at work, doing DIY, gardening or lifting a young child or baby.
  • Gardeners and physical workers – always use the right tools, take frequent breaks and do regular stretches.
  • Children – carry your schoolbags over both shoulders to prevent uneven weight distribution and take to school only what you need for that day.
  • And ladies, it’s time you looked at the contents of your handbag – do you really need all those things you’re lugging around with you all day?
  • Finally, get walking! Walking strengthens the body and helps position the spine in the natural shape it was designed for. It also helps to build up core strength, which is important in maintaining good posture. We’re so lucky to have lovely walks locally, check our blog “A Step to a Healthier Lifestyle”.

Further advice and tips on posture, exercise and diet can be found across backblog.co.uk or you can ask your chiropractor at Lushington Chiropractic.

Lushington Chiropractors have been great, I rang them after injuring my back doing DIY and they saw me the same day. James was great explained everything, made me feel at ease and started treatment straight away. They have great corona virus safety measures in place and I felt at ease throughout. I have also seen both Gary and Louise while on my course of treatment and all have there own way of doing it but the results have been great and I highly recommend Lushington Chiropractor.read more

Lushington Chiropractic is an amazing service. Exercise had been a big part of maintaining my mood and well-being and I lost this when I injured my hip. Dr Emma assessed my injury as well as other long-standing issues, and with treatment I am now back to exercising! I cannot thank them enough for enabling me to exercise again, and also giving me the knowledge to help strengthen my body, improve posture and prevent injury in the future. The service is friendly and professional and I would recommend it to everyone!read more

I've been attending the clinic for some time now and have a lot of praise for their professional approach. Always made to feel comfortable which is very important. I've had some very thorough treatment from Karen including acupuncture which I've found to be extremely helpful. It really keeps me mobile and I'm able to do many activities that would otherwise prove to be difficult.I highly recommend giving them a try. Huge thanks to Karen!read more

I have been attending the clinic for 14 years, initially to treat a long term back problem and now for maintenance to ensure the problems don't re-occur. I see James for chiropractic treatment and Kim for massage., and have seen several other chiropractors there in the past. All are excellent, the staff are friendly and re-assuring and the treatment has kept me mobile and healthy, and any problems which have flared up have been treated quickly and resolved. Highly recommended.read more

So happy I went to Lushington Chiropractic. I’d lived with a lot of discomfort - back, neck and shoulders for almost 10 years. The consultation was so interesting and gave me great hope. I’ve since had multiple treatments, which have really helped ease my pain. My day to day life has improved and I’m no longer living according to my back aches! Thank you, I highly recommend.read more

I made contact with Lushington Road following a recommendation. I have been suffering from acute lower back pain and needed help! I received a phone call the same day from James who discussed my symptoms and made me an appointment for the following day. As I arrived in the reception there was an elderly lady who obviously attends regularly, I was stuck by the sincere kindness all the staff showed her and the time they took to talk to her. I spent an hour with James having an initial consultation, he was patient, thorough, understanding and even let me cry! I was made to feel incredibly safe and relaxed as he carried out his examination. James put a clear plan in place of what treatment I would need in the future and how he could help me. No other health professional has ever taken so much time to fully understand my back pain. I am going back tomorrow for another appointment and tonight I can honestly say I feel relieved knowing that someone can help me and that my back pain will get better. Sorry for such a long post but it’s deserved!read more

The team at Lushington Chiropractic are all extremely welcoming, I started going there for regular sessions a few years ago now, for back and neck problems, they were very thorough with their initial assessments and made me feel at ease straight away. Over the last few years my back and neck pain are pretty much non-existent, I now no longer get headaches (which is a result of less pressure in my neck). I have also used their other services, every now and then, treating my self to a massage and have again got nothing but good things to say. I have seen pretty much every member of the team there and all have been extremely professional and provided an excellent service. Thanks again guys you truly have made a difference.read more

If you have been thinking about Chiropractic treatment but were unsure I would heartily recommend this clinic. Following a back spasm in 2015 I was unable to walk more than a few steps - after 3 treatments I was able to walk and drive again. The Chiropractors at Lushington are of a very high standard (I have used other clinics in the South East previously) and will provide a diagnosis of the cause of your problem and recommend a suitable course of treatment. I still use the services of Lushington on a monthly 'maintenance' basis, and have also received treatment there recently to treat a trapped nerve in my neck. My advice is to give them I try - I do not believe that you will be disappointed.read more

I can without hesitation reccomend Lushington Chiropractic. I am currently having treatment for neck and back injuries. Chiropractic treatment with James and massages with Ben. Both are proving to be such a relief from the pain and discomfort along with proven healing. The service I have received is second to none.

On behalf of my sister Lucy Webb: since visiting Dr. Mykel Mason for a pelvis, hip to knee situation, my pain levels have decreased considerably and my neck & shoulder situation greatly improved. My visits to the clinic only began during October but there have been rapid improvements by mid November. I would fully recommend to anyone who is in pain & incredibly worried, as I was, to contact the clinic for help. I have been treated with kindness, understanding & wonderful expertise by Dr Mason throughout my treatment. I would also like to thank the reception staff for their utmost kindness & consideration throughout. A perfect team!read more

Having been with a Chiropractor for 20 years it was very difficult when we moved to Eastbourne to move to a new Chiropractor. In fact I was still travelling back to my home town to see my trusted Chiropractor. Unfortunately he retired so I had no choice but to look for a new Chiropractor. I have now been going to Lushington Chiropractic for 6 weeks and can highly recommend the Chiropractic care from James and the Sports Massage from Ben. Give it a try, I did and don't regret it! I'm so glad I found them on Googleread more

To preface this review I will mention that I have been going to Lushington for a number of years, therefore I might be slightly bias but it does give me plenty of experience to review. I want to start of by saying that I have been to Lushington for 2 major injuries, my shoulder and my back/neck but, I have been going to Lushington for maintenance care for the years in between those incidents. I am an active person, competing in trampoline and engaging in many other physical activities which means my body is put under a lot of forces. My experience with Lushington has always been positive. The staff are friendly and engaging, asking how my day/week has been and how my training is going. The facility is clean and well maintained, including the treatment rooms. For my shoulder, I had a surgery that was for stabilising the shoulder. I was at the NHS physio for 6 months with very little progression in my range of motion. I decided to try another option, Lushington Chiropractic. This was my first experience at the clinic. I managed to regain the majority of my range of motion in my shoulder back within 2 months of regular treatments. I then carried on with Lushington leading to almost full recovery of my shoulder like the surgery hadn't happened. I say almost because there is still some restricted range of motion there, but that is down to surgery I think. For my back, this was quite a recent injury. During a training session on trampoline I gave myself whiplash. This was not only painful, as I am sure you can imagine, but extremely frustrating as I couldn't drive. I have been going to Lushington, as I did with my shoulder, for regular treatments and now almost 2 weeks after my whiplash I have full range of motion back in my neck, driving again and am looking to get back to training trampoline next week. I feel like this wouldn't be a fair review if I didn't mention some of the things that could be seen as negative. Obviously within in any physical health care profession, the practitioners are different and some of the individuals at the clinic are better than others. What Lushington do to combat this is that if you aren't happy with your practitioner then just change them. There are on occasion due to the busy nature of the clinic some sessions that do run late, this doesn't affect anything other than time for parking, depending on where you park. Which brings me onto another point. The parking around the clinic can be challenging but I am clutching at straws here as they can't just move site. And finally the price. As it is a private practice the price isn't the easiest thing to get your head around, and as a masters student it is not nice seeing the money go from my account. Having said that, I would much rather have a healthy body for training than money in my account. All in all, from my experience the staff and experience at Lushington is great and anyone that is looking to recover from an injury/ surgery or looking to prevent an injury should at least consider going for 1 check up.read more

I have received great results with having massage with Lizzie alongside chiropractic treatment with Karen. They have both worked wonders with me.

Brilliant service from this practice. The entire staff team are remarkably friendly, offering a very professional service. The practice is clean, welcoming and airy. They offer a ‘back care’ talk session which was useful, and they have printed and visual material educating on every day activities to aid recovery and continued health/posture awareness. Caring approach and even given homework to aid recovery and beyond. It’s those little nudges you need sometimes, but very effective. Highly recommend.read more

My appointment was with Karen, and she put me at ease straight away. She explained everything in a clear, easy-to-understand way, answered all my questions and went through my treatment plan so that I was fully informed and happy with everything.

In the New Year I was suffering from a slipped disc and deterioration of my lower back. As a result of this a friend of mine suggested I contacted James from Lushington Chiropractic, which I did. I am still having treatment with James but I am feeling so much better. There is no more pain relating to my slipped disc and as a result of his treatments and exercises at home I’m able to move around pain free. Following my, very thorough, first consultation James identified that I had problems from a neck injury from several years back. I’d been having headaches for years and had put it down to stress of life etc. Since James and Kim, who gives an excellent deep massage, have been giving me treatments for this my headaches have subsided. Additionally to this review I’d like to say thank you to Claire, on reception who does an excellent job and makes you feel very welcome. Thank you to all at Lushington Chiropractic.read more

I thought I'd try Lushington as I have a chronic muscular stenosis as well as lumbar arthritis. I had a series of sessions with Joshua French who helped to ease my aches and pains and lower back problems. I've followed that up with a monthly massage from Ryan Keats who takes great care in analysing my specific weaknesses to achieve the best outcome. I am very pleased with the treatment received and know that I can increase or decrease the sessions as it suits me. I particularly like the fact that all treatment is explained carefully and patient notes are kept to assess progress.read more

I was recommended Lushngton by my GP as I had been suffering from a bad back and pain in my leg. I can't thank them enough for their help. Regular chiropractic with massage has helped me immensely. I am no longer on painkillers and can enjoy walking again. The chiropractor, massage therapist and reception staff were wonderful. Made me feel very at ease and enjoyed my visits to them. Thankyou and have recommended to freinds.read more

Highly recommend to anyone needing treatment. Friendly and welcoming reception staff, with very comfortable waiting room. Professional care provided with very successful and effective results. The free evening classes are also super interesting and helpful. I wouldn't go anywhere else to see a Chiropractor and I was quick to notice improvement in my QOL. I also appreciated the time taken to help me understand the cause of my problems and what treatment would help and how. Top class service, 5 stars!read more

I started to see Gemma a couple of months ago with a very debilitating sciatic pain down my left leg, thigh and buttock.The pain increased when I was sitting, and was worse when I was driving or sitting for long periods of time. I had been in pain for nearly a year. I felt very desperate as no one seemed to be able to help me. The pain was affecting my life in a negative way. Gemma was very understanding and when she said that she could help me, I was so happy I had come to the right place at last. Over a numbers of weeks I saw a steady improvement in my pain levels.Gemma was so helpful and showed a huge amount of empathy.At last I had hope that things might actually start to improve. Gemma made adjustments to my spine and manipulated muscles that weren’t working properly. Slowly I made improvements, driving and sitting watching TV didn’t cause as much pain as before. Thank you Gemma, I can’t thank you enough and I would have no hesitation in recommending Lushington Chiropractor to my friends and family.read more

Brilliant service by Dr Joshua French at lushington chiropractic, was in excruciating pain and barely able to walk, josh was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable in his field of expertise. After a couple of sessions I was already walking better and standing up straight was much easier. I had a total of 8 treatments and felt like a new man. All the staff were very supportive and I’ve had regular phone calls to make sure I’m ok, couldn’t recommend these guys enough, they all go above and beyond to get you back on the straight and narrow. Thanksread more

I have visited the practice following an excruciating nerve pain down my left arm. The environment is relaxed and I felt at ease with everyone immediately, from the receptionists to the practitioners. Mykel examined me, spotted the problem and within a few sessions with him I had my sleep back. I am now recovering with Gemma and getting better and better. Thanks to Victoria as well for her help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lushington Chiropractic thanks to the knowledgeable people and the friendly atmosphere. Claudioread more

I have been receiving treatment from Josh since he started a couple of months or so ago. He has helped me tremendously in reducing the amount of pain in my knee by making adjustments to my ankle (never had that before), working on my hip and working on areas surrounding the knee. Within the first 2-3 sessions with him the severe pain I had for a year and a half prior was reduced by around 80% and I can now load my knee a lot better and continue to progress. He has also really helped my shoulder by making adjustments to my neck and spine which has allowed me to exercise more and recover better from my workout's after having 4 shoulder surgeries. I would highly recommend him for both sports people and also to people just looking to get their bodies moving in the correct way and reducing unnecessary stress on the joints. He's a great guy aswell so you will really get on with him, he will really look after you and has great knowledge too. I have also seen other chiropractors at the clinic and masseuse's and they have also been great. Thank you Josh and to all the staff at lushington including the reception staff who are great.

I have been going to Lushington Chiropractic for a number of years now and I am very impressed with the whole experience. The first thing you notice is just how pleasant the place is, it is always spotlessly clean, well looked after and a rather calming environment. The clinic staff are wonderful, they always have a smile and a cheer for you, and everyone I have met at the clinic makes you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in the door, which I really do like and value. Dr Revell, as are all the staff, is very attentive to your concerns and makes you feel at ease and takes the time to explain to you any proposed treatments, and I never feel like talking to him is too much trouble or a problem. I always feel better after visiting and would thoroughly recommend the clinic to anyone looking for a high-quality service and practice with a patient focused approach.read more

I have the highest of praise for Lushington Chiropractic. I first attended last Autumn in some discomfort, minimal flexibility and with ever growing pain in my neck, shoulder, arms and fingers. I was assigned to Vicky who I cannot express just how much she has helped me and I am now without pain, standing straighter then I have in years and now I feel I am able to take on more. I was deeply impressed by how thorough Vicky was in going through my medical history and she was able to say that she would be able to help me. She was certainly true to her word. I now look forward to the treatments as Vicky's professional attitude and very warm personality ensures I am always relaxed. I cannot recommend Vicky enough and I can say the same for the other chiropractors who have seen me when Vicky was fully booked. At these times it was very clear that my treatment plan had been shared and I so appreciated this consistency in approach. If you are struggling in some way with back pain or something similar, book yourself a consultation and see what it can do for you.read more
