Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic

Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic is the longest established clinic in town and has been running for over 15 years.  The clinic was set-up by Becky Andrew D.C (Doctor of Chiropractic) who was looking to branch out on her own after working for Ian Hutchinson DC in Chelmsford.  Becky’s family all live in East Sussex so having found a premises that would work as a clinic, it got converted from a children’s nursery into the busy, thriving clinic it is today.

Becky’s desire to work with the body and help improve peoples health and mobility, came from having received chiropractic treatment herself as a sporty teenager with low back pain.

Dr Becky Andrew

Becky Andrew - BA, MSc, DC

Chiropractor & Owner of Uckfield and Hailsham Chiropractic Clinics

My interest in chiropractic started in 1991 when as a sports scholar I had to visit Richard Rummary (original owner of Hailsham CC), with severe low back pain and was amazed at how after only a few treatments, my mobility and pain improved hugely.

Having gone on a hockey scholarship to the USA to study Anthropology and African studies for 4 years, and spending lots of time in the training room, I knew I wanted to work with the body. So I decided to continue my studies back in the UK studying for a Master’s of Science in Chiropractic at the University of Surrey.

After working for Ian Hutchinson a Chiropractor in Chelmsford for 3 years, I decided to set up on my own nearer family and friends in Sussex. Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic was set up and opened in July 2006. The clinic in Uckfield has flourished and we now have a multi disciplinary team including two chiropractors.

In 2012 I expanded my business and purchased Hailsham Chiropractic Clinic, which is also multi disciplinary, with three Chiropractors.

As a chiropractor I thoroughly enjoy treating generations of families. Having a strong background in high level sports, this is always of interest me helping people to perform to their optimum. Also being a parent has given me the impetus to undertake additional courses on chiropractic care during pregnancy. At the clinics we use a wide variety of chiropractic techniques depending on the patients needs - this includes Becky being an advanced level Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique practitioner.

I still enjoy playing and watching sport when I have the time, most of it now taken up by my two young sons who love having treatments and have their own toy activators to perform treatments on family!

Sarah Parker

Receptionist

I initially joined Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic in 2014 having flippantly said to Becky one afternoon that, if she ever needed any receptionist cover give me a call!
Well, I am still here!! I just love this job.
I had been a nurse for 34 years and during my initial 2 years of retirement I found that I really missed the feeling of belonging to a team, as well as missing the variety of people I used to meet every day. This job definitely ticks those boxes.
In my spare time I have a collie dog who needs lots of exercise, as well as 5 Aylesbury ducks who are always getting into mischief.
I love gardening, sewing, Pilates and swimming.
Most of all I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, family and friends.

Katie Beckett

Receptionist

I joined Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic on a temporary basis as a receptionist when it first opened in July 2006 – 14 years later I am still here on a part-time basis! I have two sons who are very active and use all the services provided here at the clinic. Its a great, friendly place to work.
