The Spine – the backbone of your vitality

The Spine – the backbone of your vitality

The spine and its connections are vital for optimum health

  • The spinal column is a very complex flexible structure consisting of 24 vertebrae stacked on top of each other connected by 23 discs and 51 joints.

  • The head containing the brain, our ultimate control centre, sits at the top and the pelvis is at the bottom. It is all held together by a web of muscles, ligaments and fascia extending throughout the whole body.

  • Sitting in the spinal canal, the spinal cord starts from the base of the brain running 2/3 down the length of the spine.

  • From the spinal cord 31 pairs of spinal nerves exit through narrow gaps between adjacent vertebrae and sacral segments.

  • Each nerve supplies an area of the skin with sensation, controls muscle relaxation and contraction, regulates organ function and generally conveys messages between your brain and the rest of your body.

  • Stiffness, degeneration and disc problems can cause local pain and may also irritate or trap the spinal cord, or one or more spinal nerves causing pain, inflammation, numbness, tingling and weakness in the trunk, arms or legs, such as sciatica.

What is Chiropractic proven to be effective for?

Back Pain and Lumbago

What chiropractic treatment is most well known for relieving

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Back Pain and Lumbago

People present with back pain varying from annoying aches to sharp debilitating pain. Often the underlying problem is stiff joints in the spine causing joints, muscles and ligaments to strain or tear. Severe pain may start without warning while performing a trivial daily task, but often it is preceded by intermittent less severe warning symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment for back pain involves your chiropractor using a combination of manual adjustments to the spine, massage, trigger point and stretching techniques. The aim is to improve function, reduce nerve and soft tissue irritation, alleviate pain and promote natural healing.
Our approach focuses on your body’s ability to heal, often incorporating exercises and lifestyle recommendations for long-term relief.
Every treatment plan is tailored to the individual and chiropractic is suitable for all age groups.

Neck Pain

The second most common reason for people seeking chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Neck Pain

Today’s modern lifestyle often causes problems in the neck and shoulder area. Poor work position, repetitive tasks, stress and frequent use of laptops and handheld devices can all contribute to pain, discomfort and muscle spasm in the neck and upper back, at the base of the skull and over the top of the shoulders. These problems are often associated with headaches.
Another common cause is a historic accident or injury. Initial symptoms may be minor, short lived and soon forgotten, but may come back to haunt you years later
Chiropractic care can often provide short- and long-term relief through treatment including suitable manipulation techniques, mobilisation, soft tissue work, exercises, encouragement, education, and lifestyle advice.
In some cases long term management is recommended.

Sciatica

Probably the most misdiagnosed condition presenting for chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Sciatica, Hip, Knee, Leg and Foot Pains

Sciatica is a trapped nerve causing you leg symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness and/or muscle weakness. Mostly the trapped nerve is in your back, but the worst pain may be in your buttock. The nerve can get trapped by a ‘slipped disc’, a worn spine or a tight muscle.
Other common causes of aches and pains in the muscles and joints arise from a problem in the leg. For example, a foot problem may cause excessive stress in the joints and muscles in your leg, pelvis and lower back.
Chiropractic treatment has provided countless people with relief from for sciatica and various lower limb conditions. Your chiropractor will analyse your problem and advise on the best way forward. If chiropractic treatment is suitable, your chiropractor will propose a treatment plan and tell you the expected outcome.

Headaches and Migraine

Often neck related, headaches and migraines can be prevented or eased through chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Headaches and Migraine

A lot of people think having regular headaches is normal or unavoidable. Others that migraine can only be treated with drugs. Wrong!
Tension headaches, cluster headaches, neck related (cervicogenic) headaches and migraines are the most common.
You may suffer from more than one type of headache. Some may appear together and others at separate times. The pain severity and frequency may range from annoying to debilitating and the duration may from minutes to days.
Accurate diagnosis is vital, and our chiropractors have vast experience in identifying the people who are likely to benefit from chiropractic treatment. Occasioanlly headaches are linked to unavoidable responsibilities and in some cases chiropractic care may only reduce the severity and frequency of the headaches. However, with significantly less pain many people feel revitalised and able to make more of their leisure and family time improving physical and mental well-being.

Shoulder, Arm, Elbow and Hand Pain

Another myriad of wrong diagnoses presenting for chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Shoulder, Arm, Elbow and Hand Pain

As with lower back pain, leg pain and sciatica there are several potential reasons for people suffering from shoulder and arm pains. Our chiropractors have huge experience in this area too.
Many people have self-diagnosed or been told that they have a frozen shoulder or a tennis elbow. In our experience, they are mostly mistaken.
Often shoulder pain is in the rotator cuff and arising from dysfunction in the neck or in the upper back. Elbow pain can arise from the joint itself or from wrist or neck problems. Both could also be a trapped nerve. Therefore, concentrating treatment to the painful area can be a mistake
Our chiropractors have extensive knowledge, experience and skill  in diagnosing and treating shoulder and arm discomfort. The chiropractic treatment plan is likely to involve various treatment techniques but also exercises and self-help strategies.

Wear and Tear, Joint and Arthritic Pains

Chiropractic treatment can be effective in relieving arthritic spine, joint and muscle pain

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Arthritic Pains

Osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease or spondylosis (if it is in the spine) are all due to wear and tear, and they are not necessarily painful.
Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis are inflammatory autoimmune diseases.
With age everyone gets wear and tear arthritis but excessive use, injuries or anomalies can cause it in younger people. You may be surprised to know that on scans or x-rays arthritis in the spine is evident in nearly everyone over the age of 40.
Arthritic joint changes are irreversible but chiropractic treatment including carefully chosen exercises, can often relieve pain by improving joint function, mobility, and muscle strength and control.
Chiropractic care is generally not considered suitable for inflammatory arthritic conditions. However, the resulting symptoms may be aggravated by coexisting spine, joint and muscle stiffness and osteoarthritis. Therefore, in some cases chiropractic can be a worthwhile addition to your overall pain management and well-being.

Pregnancy and Beyond

Chiropractic treatment can help with many of the symptoms encountered during pregnancy and after childbirth

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment in Pregnancy and Beyond

Many physical, mental and hormonal changes take place during pregnancy and these can put excessive strain on the woman’s body. The increased postural demands of a growing bump,  the birth process and subsequently caring for the infant(s) and maybe other older children means that pelvic, back, leg and neck pains are common.
Chiropractic care is suitable and safe throughout the pregnancy and beyond. As the pregnancy progresses modifications to the techniques are made to ensure safety and comfort. In certain cases the use of a support belt may be required. The most suitable type will be advised on.
Prenatal and postnatal chiropractic treatment will address spinal and pelvic problems and may provide a drug free alternative to pain management.

Children and Chiropractic

Spine, joint and muscle pain also occur in children. Resolving them early may prevent future problems

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Children

Back pain, neck pain and headaches are not reserved for adult life. The foundations for good lifelong health are laid in childhood.
Children run, climb, fall and bump into things and each other. Their developing bodies carry heavy bags, use wrong size furniture, and spend extensive periods on computers and handhelds. A child complaining of back, neck joint or muscle pains should not be ignored. Problems may accumulate to resurface later in life.
Jan Olsen, one of the Park View chiropractors, chose his career path aged 12 after successful chiropractic treatment for a back problem several other therapies had failed to resolve.
We will use techniques suitable for the age and the development of the child. Understanding of what is happening is important for the whole family and we aim to explain the process to everyone involved.
Treatment will not commence unless your chiropractor is confident that the child and the accompanying adult are happy.
Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate adult.
We do not treat babies and toddlers.

What is Chiropractic proven to be effective for?

Back Pain and Lumbago

What chiropractic treatment is most well known for relieving

Worthgin Chiropractor Treatment for Back Pain and Lumbago

People may experience back pain ranging from mild discomfort to severe debilitating pain. Stiff joints in the spine are often the root cause, leading to strain or tears in joints, muscles, and ligaments. Severe pain may arise suddenly during routine activities but are often preceded by intermittent warning symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment for back pain involves manual adjustments, massage, trigger point, and stretching techniques to enhance function, reduce nerve irritation, alleviate pain, and promote natural healing. Our approach emphasises the body’s healing ability, incorporating exercises and lifestyle recommendations for long-term relief. Each treatment plan is personalised, making chiropractic suitable for all age groups.

Neck Pain

The second most common reason for people seeking chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Neck Pain

Modern lifestyles, including poor work positions, repetitive tasks, stress, and device usage, often lead to neck and shoulder issues, causing pain, discomfort, and muscle spasms. Long standing or deteriorating problems, often accompanied by headaches, may result from these issues or past accidents.
Chiropractic care offers short- and long-term relief through manipulation and/or mobilisation techniques, soft tissue work, exercises, education, and lifestyle advice. Some cases, especially those involving aggravating unavoidable work or leisure activities, may require long-term management.

Sciatica

Probably the most misdiagnosed condition presenting for chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Sciatica and Hip, Knee, Leg and Foot Pains

Sciatica, a trapped nerve causing leg symptoms like pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness, is often linked to issues in the back, such as a ‘slipped’ or bulging disc, a worn/arthritic worn spine, or tight buttock muscles. Sometimes sciatica may be mistaken for aches and pains in muscles and joints originating in the leg, like foot issues causing excessive stress in the leg, pelvis, and lower back.
Chiropractic treatment offers relief for sciatica and various lower limb conditions. Your chiropractor will analyse your problem, propose a suitable treatment plan, and outline the expected outcome.

Headaches and Migraine

Often neck related, headaches and migraines can be prevented or eased through chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Headaches and Migraine

If you believe that frequent headaches are normal or only treatable with drugs, you would be wrong!
Tension headaches, cluster headaches, cervicogenic headaches, and migraines are common types, occurring together or at different times. Headache severity and frequency vary, with chiropractic care offering relief in many cases. Accurate diagnosis is crucial, and chiropractors can identify those likely to benefit from treatment. While unavoidable work and leisure may contribute to your headaches, chiropractic care can reduce severity and frequency, improving overall well-being.

Shoulder, Arm, Elbow and Hand Pain

Another myriad of wrong diagnoses presenting for chiropractic treatment

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Shoulder, Arm, Elbow and Hand Pain

Like leg pain and sciatica, shoulder and arm pains can have various causes. Many people self-diagnose frozen shoulder or tennis elbow but are often wrong.
Shoulder pain may stem from the rotator cuff or dysfunction in the neck or upper back, while elbow pain can result from joint, wrist, or neck issues, potentially involving a trapped nerve. Focusing treatment solely on the painful area can be a mistake.
Our chiropractors excel in diagnosing and treating shoulder and arm discomfort, employing a comprehensive approach that includes various treatment techniques, exercises, and self-help strategies.

Wear and Tear, Joint and Arthritic Pains

Chiropractic treatment can be effective in relieving arthritic spine, joint and muscle pain

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Arthritic Pains

Osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, and spondylosis result from wear and tear and may not always be painful. Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis are inflammatory autoimmune diseases.
While age contributes to wear and tear arthritis, excessive use, injuries, or anomalies can cause it in younger individuals. Arthritic joint changes are irreversible, but chiropractic treatment, including tailored exercises, can often alleviate pain by enhancing joint function, mobility, and muscle strength. Chiropractic treatment is generally not recommended for inflammatory arthritis. However, in cases where the resulting symptoms are aggravated by coexisting spine, joint and muscle stiffness and osteoarthritis chiropractic caremay be a beneficial addition to overall pain management and well-being.

Pregnancy and Beyond

Chiropractic treatment can help with many of the symptoms encountered during pregnancy and after childbirth

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment in Pregnancy and Beyond

Pregnancy entails numerous physical, mental, and hormonal changes in the woman’s body. These changes as well as the birth process, and caring for infants contribute to common pelvic, back, leg, and neck pains.
Chiropractic care is safe and suitable throughout pregnancy and beyond, with modifications to treatment techniques ensuring safety and comfort. Support belts may be recommended in certain cases. Prenatal and postnatal chiropractic treatment addresses spinal and pelvic issues, offering a drug-free alternative for pain management.

Children and Chiropractic Treatment

Spine, joint and muscle pain also occur in children. Resolving them early may prevent future problems

Worthing Chiropractor Treatment for Children

Back pain, neck pain, and headaches can and does affect children, potentially impacting their lifelong health. Activities like running, climbing, and prolonged use of computers or handhelds may contribute to the same problems and symptoms experienced by adults. Early treatment can help resolve problems which may otherwise lead to issues resurfacing later in life,.
Park View chiropractor Jan Olsen, inspired by having successful chiropractic treatment for back pain, chose his career path at the age of 12. He offers age-appropriate techniques and appreciates that understanding the process is crucial for the whole family. Chiropractic treatment begins only once both the child and parents/guardians are comfortable and happy to proceed.
Those under 16 must have an appropriate adult present at all times. Babies and toddlers are not treated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic safe?2024-02-05T14:53:01+00:00

Yes, our Worthing Chiropractors provide treatment which has been proven to be remarkably safe. Chiropractic treatment is a holistic, non-invasive approach to health. No surgery or drugs are involved, however our chiropractors appreciate the benefits of certain painkilling and anti-inflammatory medication during the acute phases of an injury. Chiropractic is the world’s third largest health care profession after medicine and dentistry and over the past 100+ years millions of people have found help from chiropractic care, even after surgery.

Over the years various people have expressed concerns about the safety of neck manipulation sometimes used in the treatment of neck pain and headaches. However, through extensive research these concerns have now been proven to be unfounded. For more information on this subject please click here.

No form of treatment is completely risk free and your chiropractor will explain possible risks of treatment and discuss any concerns you may have prior to commencing with chiropractic care.

We have a section on most of the chiropractic techniques we use It can accessed here.

What about my GP – do I need a referral?2024-02-05T14:59:08+00:00

Unless your medical insurance requires a GP referral you do not need to see your GP before coming to see our Worthing Chiropractors. Nearly all GPs will be quite happy for you to choose to have appropriate chiropractic treatment by our chiropractors at Park View Clinic. However, despite both The General Practitioners Committee and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommending chiropractic for low back pain not all GPs know enough about our profession to suggest it to you. There is also substantial research evidence supporting the use of chiropractic treatment for neck pain, whiplash injuries, headaches, migraines, shoulder pain, hip and knee arthritis, and more.

In general our Worthing Chiropractors enjoy a good working relationship with the more traditional medical professions and we regularly receive referrals from GPs, medical doctors and specialists.

We like to send your GP a letter outlining your reason for seeking chiropractic treatment with us and how we have got on. However, we will not do so unless you give your written consent.

Can anyone call themselves a chiropractor?2024-02-05T15:03:16+00:00

No. Chiropractic is a regulated profession and it is illegal for anyone to call themselves a ‘chiropractor’ or claiming to provide chiropractic treatment without being registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).

All chiropractors have to undergo Continuing Professional Development to maintain their license to practise.

Our Worthing Chiropractors, Jan Olsen and Roger Cracknell, have maintained their registration with the GCC since regulation started in 1999. Their registration number are 00152 and 00260 respectively.

Will I need an x-ray, scan, blood test etc.?2024-02-05T15:38:20+00:00

All decisions to take x-rays have to comply with Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 (IRR) and the Ionising Radiations (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IRMER). The recommendation for routine x-ray examination for back and neck pain was discontinued many years ago. Only if a thorough case history taking and examination fails to give reassurance of a benign cause of symptoms or if treatment fails to provide relief, is imaging recommended. Otherwise it serves little purpose other than exposing you to unnecessary and  potentially harmful ionising radiation.

Our Worthing chiropractors have a good working relationship with the local GPs who generally are more than happy to refer you for an NHS x-rays, if we feel it may help shed some light on your problem. These are often done and reported on within a couple of weeks. If you are happy to pay for private imaging we can advise you on local providers. X-rays are around £125 and MRIs are less than £400 per area, e.g. lower back.

If your Park View chiropractor decides that other investigations are required he can advise you on how best to organise these. If you are happy to pay it usually tales a few days – if not, we can liaise with your GP to set up the appropriate investigation or appointment. Simple NHS tests do not take long but specialist appointments can take months to come through. Most medical insurance policies require GP or medical consultant referral to pay out for these.

Does Chiropractic treatment hurt?2024-02-05T15:43:19+00:00

Well, it depends.

As we mostly deal with painful conditions and injured tissues, some discomfort may be unavoidable. Your chiropractor will be sensitive to your discomfort and ask you for feedback on the severity of the pain you feel and adjust the treatment accordingly. You may also experience some soreness after the treatment – rarely a bruise. This will soon pass as your body begins to heal and adjust. Your chiropractor will be able to tell you if this is likely to happen and how to minimise any discomfort.

Please get in touch with us if you have ANY concerns.

How soon will I feel better?2024-02-05T16:06:48+00:00

This will depend on the individual problem, how long time you’ve had it, how bad it is and how many areas and tissues are affected. Your general health and lifestyle habits can also significantly affect your body’s healing time.

Whilst every patient reacts differently, your chiropractor will be able to advise you on your likely recovery path. In most cases you will feel a definite change for the better early on in your treatment plan. Most patients express feeling ‘easier’ or ‘lighter’ after just one or two treatments, but in general, the longer you’ve had it, the longer it will take to get better. Also having no or little remaining pain can also be a poor indication of the degree of recovery, merely a good sign that your body is better able to cope and that you  can start to slowly increase your activity levels. Ligament, muscle and tendon injuries can take longer to fully heal than a broken bone – sometimes much longer.

Optimise your recovery and minimise the risk of setbacks by sticking with the treatment plan, following your chiropractor’s advice on rest and activity, doing your exercises and  adopting any recommended lifestyle adjustments.

Getting it right from the start pays dividends later on.

How often do I need to go?2024-02-05T16:19:55+00:00

The frequency and the amount of chiropractic treatment you require depend on several factors: Your specific health problem. For how long you have had it. How severe it is. How many areas and tissues are affected and to what extent etc.

Your goals are very important in determining what is best for you. Do you just want crisis care for pain relief or are you looking for a more permanent solution? What lifestyle and activities do you want to keep, return to or start pursuing?

Your individual treatment plan and how well you are likely to get will be explained during your initial consultation.

Most people cannot avoid the very activities that over time brought them to us in the first place, or are likely to cause a recurrence. It may be work, home or leisure related. If that is you, you should consider opting for the full 3-stage care package. But ultimately it is up to you to decide how long you wish to benefit from chiropractic care – and, rest assured, you can change your mind at any time.

The 3 stages of care:

  1. Crisis care (once or twice per week)
    to provide pain relief and postural stability. Usually 2-4 weeks.
  2. Rehabilitative care (weekly to fortnightly)
    to optimise healing and gain maximum benefit of the treatment. Strengthening and re-education of the injured tissues.
    Usually 4-6 weeks.
  3. Maintenance care – Ongoing – usually once every 2-4 months.
    To optimise function and performance, and minimise the risk of recurrences.
Will I have to do exercises or change what I do?2024-02-05T16:21:56+00:00

The majority of people will benefit from self-help advice and exercises. Your chiropractor will determine when your are ready and instruct you on what to do. Your chiropractor’s recommendations are intended to help you recover quicker and get better long term results, providing a future with less pain and less need for treatment. We cannot force you to follow the advise but we believe it is in your best interest to do so.

A vastly underrated exercise is walking and we nearly all do too little of it. As long as you can walk a little way without pain this is a good place to start. Further self-help advice can be found here.

Will I be given drugs or injections?2023-11-28T17:33:43+00:00

No. With chiropractic treatment no drugs or surgery is involved although we appreciate the benefits of certain pain killing and anti-inflammatory medication during the acute phases of an injury. Pain killing medication should only be used to allow more comfortable rest periods – NOT to carry on as if nothing is wrong. Chiropractic care employs a holistic, natural approach to health. Your chiropractor will try and determine the underlying cause of your problem and correct it, rather than just masking it with painkillers. Chiropractors use their hands to manipulate the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments of your body.

Instead of putting something in or taking something out of the body, the power of the body to heal itself is restored. Painkillers may make you feel less pain, but they do not address the cause of the problem, and can have serious side effects. One of the first aims your chiropractor care is for you to be able to function normally without pain and without painkillers.

Is chiropractic suitable during pregnancy?2024-01-20T12:13:41+00:00

Yes, chiropractic treatment is suitable and safe throughout the pregnancy and after giving birth. Chiropractic care can help with common problems associated with pregnancy such as pain in the back, neck and shoulders, joint and muscle aches and pains.

Can children be treated?2024-01-20T12:14:34+00:00

Yes, people of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care, although treatment techniques used with young children obviously differ dramatically from those of most adults. Talk to your chiropractor to find out more.

Is chiropractic suitable for sports people?2024-02-05T16:28:23+00:00

Absolutely.

In essence sports people are no different from ‘normal’ people. However, sports performance often puts higher demands on the structure and function of the joints, muscles, tendons, muscles and ligaments and therefore athletes may require a higher intensity and frequency of treatment.

Just like a car anything mechanical – the more you use it, the faster you make it go, the more care and maintenance it needs to keep going.

How much does Chiropractic cost?2024-02-05T16:34:17+00:00

Appropriate chiropractic treatment has been proven to be very cost effective.

As well as receiving treatment during the visit to your chiropractor, you will be given advice on rest and activity, any exercises to speed up your recover, and other things you can do get better as quickly as possible.

Our Chiropractic fees are shown at the bottom of the Chiropractic page, accessed here.

Will medical insurers or cash plan providers pay for my chiropractic care?2024-02-21T10:07:04+00:00

Jan Olsen is a registered provider with most PMIs including Aviva, Axa, Bupa, Vitality and others.

Most Private Medical Insurers (PMI) and Cash Plan providers will reimburse you for some or all of your chiropractic care but you must check your policy first. Levels of cover vary hugely as do the excesses (the amount you have to pay before they start paying) applied.

For PMI claims you will need to contact the insurer who will provide you with a claim reference number, which you will need to pass on to us along with your policy number before your Initial Consultation.

In general Cash Plan providers require you to submit our invoices once you have paid us, and most PMIs want us to bill them directly.
