There are usually lots of street paybyphone and meter parking spots at our location in Langfords Hotel on Third Avenue, which is unusual for Brighton and Hove.

It is a good idea to download the app before you visit us, as you will need it if you plan on parking in Brighton and Hove. I know it may seem like an insurmountable task to paybyphone if you haven’t used it already but once you use it, you will see how easy it is to use. Here is the website link if you need it. From there you will be able to either register on-line or download an app for your phone whether is be android, apple or blackberry device.

There is also a paybyphone link on our website under the Contact us page.

So, we’ll see you soon.

Hi Folks

I have put together this short video for new patients and those of you that have not yet visited us at our new location in the Langfords Hotel, 8-16 Third Avenue in Hove (just a few blocks from our old location on Church Road). It shows you how to find us in the Hotel. You could also ask the Hotel Reception staff – they are very friendly and will point you in the right direction.

See you soon.

Merry Christmas

It’s official – we appear to have become a Spa for ailing orchids!

We have received another 2 ailing plants that will probably spend a few months recuperating at the clinic before returning home to their concerned owners.

This one keeps on giving.

This one keeps on giving.

We are always being asked what we do to orchids that makes them seem to perpetually bloom? So here it is…

I feed them approximately once every month or so; I water them once a week in the summer, a lot less in the winter months; Yes – okay, I talk to them and tell them how beautiful they are but the reason our orchids do so well at the clinic, is because of the large north facing window that gives lots of light but not direct sunlight.

Here are some more of ours.

Here are some more of ours.

There you go – hope it helps you to create your own little Orchid Spa Resort.

If I had known that buying a garden broom for Neil (our gardener), would make him so happy, I would have done it ages ago.

Richard Husseiny

Richard works at Coast as a Sports Therapist, and also with the English Institute of Sport as a strength & conditioning coach with the Olympian Team GB divers and disability equestrian athletes. His main focus with them is to improve performance, by increasing their ability to generate force in relation to the sport they are involved with, and reduce injury by making them more robust, enabling them to train more hours.

His work at Coast enables him to adapt the skills he uses with elite athletes. This can often provide fantastic results, as long as the client undertakes responsibility to the advice given. There is never a quick fix.

In the future Richard would like to study a PhD in the field of either power development or youth athletic development.

This is a little bit about Anne French 

I was in a nasty car accident when I was 21years of age. After months of pain, a friend dragged me into to her own Chiropractor for treatment. I was amazed that the Chiropractor could help me and remember being fascinated at the time and thinking that I would love to be able to train in this wonderful art and offer the same help to other people.

I never stayed in one place long enough ( place or country) to actually study to become a Chiropractor and it wasn’t until I was 36 years old that I decided to apply to the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. I did a 4 year BSc. (Hons), and then continued studying to get my MSc. Chiropractic. I have been practicing for 12 years and have never looked back. I love what I do.

My true passion is to find that little thing that motivates a patient to make tiny lifestyle changes that can have an immensely positive impact on their health.

  • Favourite film: The colour purple
  • First record/CD: Build me up buttercup and Love child (bought at the same time).
  • Favourite colour: Can’t chose, just love colour
  • Favourite pastime: pastime – what’s that?
  • Pet: A cat called Pussycat (couldn’t think of a name beautiful enough for her)
  • Sleep patterns: I love waking up
  • Favourite meal: nasi sajur
  • Hero/heroin: Emma Peel (!!!)

  • Favourite Sport: Dance
  • Laughs at: Almost everything or passionately ranting about something else

For all you Strictly Come Dancing fans – and I know you are out there – we thought we would give you a quick anatomy lesson to explain the injury that Artem has picked up in this seasons filming with his partner Holly Valance.

Initially they thought he had fractured the transverse process of a lumbar vertebra. This is one of the bones in the spine of his lower back.

lumbar-vertebra

The transverse process is a key place for the back muscles to attach to. So a fracture (or break) of this part of the bone would be very painful and take time to heal, as it is difficult to keep the area still to fuse together. 

Luckily the doctors have changed their diagnosis (which can happen once swelling goes down and it is easier to see what is going on). It is now diagnosed as a joint and soft tissue injury. The muscles, ligaments and joint capsules around the spine are very pain sensitive. If they are over used or have small tears they become inflamed and irritated. This leads to pain and a change in ability to function. This kind of injury needs some rest and manual therapy (such as osteopathy, chiropractic or massage) to allow it to heal well. As well as rehabilitation exercises to make sure that the scar tissue is laid down in the most efficient way and that the surrounding muscles are strong and not too tight. Reducing any lasting weakness. The same can be said of any musculoskeletal injuries.

We wish Artem well in recovering and the competition.
