Hi, My name is Dr Alexandra Elphick DC (please call me Ali). Just to avoid any misunderstanding I am a Doctor of Chiropractic not a Doctor of Medicine or a GP. I’m the Principal Chiropractor here at Beach House Chiropractic and I’m registered with the General Chiropractic Council No 03443. I’ve lived in West Sussex for many years and love the area.
My Chiropractic story started back in 2001. After many years of competing at national level in badminton, coupled with a sedentary (and stressful) job in London things suddenly caught up with me…ouch my back, is all I remember!
I visited a Chiropractor who examined me and then told me (with a friendly smile) that the niggles I’d been ignoring for quite a while should really have been resolved a few years before and my back pain was a result of leaving things for too long. I knew that, but like most people I’d just been carrying on regardless, thinking the aches and pains would probably go on their own.
After several ‘adjustments’ (the name for a Chiropractic treatment) I felt much better and noticed all kinds of other things happening that I had not imagined…lots more energy, feeling less stressed / more balanced but most important of all, the pain had gone. I remember telling this to my Chiropractor and asking him if all these other unexpected good things could be down to him…his reply astonished me; “no, it was not me Ali, it’s all down to you. I helped by removing the interference through your spine and nervous system but your body did the rest”.
Well, after a life up to that point of pushing myself hard and relying on pain killers, I had a thirst to know more. So much so, that in 2006 I enrolled into the Anglo European Chiropractic College in Bournemouth (AECC) and life as I know it today started!
People visit me at Beach House Chiropractic Worthing for all kinds of reasons but in particular for pain and problems associated with years of poor posture, work and lifestyle stress. I take a ‘wholistic’ approach and have a real passion to help people get back to their active and healthy best.
Since graduating from Chiropractic college I have lived in Worthing with my husband and two young boys. I hope to meet you at the new clinic in Broadwater soon and one day read your chiropractic story!
