We’ve Been Helping People Take Control of Their Back and Neck Pain for Over 30 Years
So first, let us tell you ours...
Founder Steve Morris had received his fair share of injuries growing up. But it was an excruciating back injury during one of his final rugby games before national level trials that saw him end up in A&E—where he was told to stop playing rugby altogether. Seeking a different opinion, Steve was referred to an osteopath. After treatment, talking, enquiring, and the cover-to-cover reading of an osteopathy textbook, Steve realised this was the profession for him. He enrolled in the British School of Osteopathy, and moved up to London to begin his study.
Fresh out of University, Steve returned to Brighton and started practising osteopathy. He secured a job in a large osteopathy practice as an associate, where he worked full time during the week. But Steve was committed. So, in the evenings and on weekends he worked in his own clinic, using a portable osteopathy table in a rented room lent out by a local dentist. This was the beginning of Sussex Back Pain Clinic.
Within a few years, the practice was thriving as a full-time venture, renting two full-time rooms at the same dental practice. Through building our patient base we discovered that a worryingly large number of people were living with chronic back and neck pain without any long-term hope in sight. We’d found our focus, and had big plans to expand our services.
The practice was growing, so we finally bid farewell to the dental clinic, and moved to self-contained premises at 58 New Church Road, Hove—which is still our home today. This move allowed us to bring on more osteopathic specialists, and a massage therapist, all working together as the newly-branded Sussex Back Pain Clinic. We’d achieved the scope to develop into a truly specialised spinal care clinic!
Sussex Back Pain Clinic continued to expand. We continued to bring more specialist osteopathic staff and clinic staff into the team, and opened up our doors on the upper floor of our current building. We expanded our treatment rooms from two to six, greatly increasing the number of patients we could see, allowing us to help more people live a pain-free life.
As part of our commitment to helping our patients overcome chronic spinal disc pain, we discovered IDD Therapy, a US-based system that used specialist computer technology to identify and determine where and how pressure was causing disc pain—and how to treat it at the source. Sussex Back Pain Clinic became one of the first clinics in the UK to start using an IDD Therapy Machine. This allowed us to offer our patients a completely non-invasive alternative to surgery or spinal injection, meaning we could now help treat the full spectrum of spinal conditions.
We’re really proud of the team that we’ve assembled at Sussex Back Pain Clinic. Friendly and approachable, every one us is an expert in our fields—and completely focused on providing you with the very best treatment so you can get back to enjoying your life. That’s our promise to you. Today, and for the future.
