Morten Westergaard

BSc(Hons) MSc DC MRCC
Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr Morten Westergaard is a Danish Doctor of Chiropractic (Not a Medical Doctor), graduated from the internationally renowned Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 1998 where he obtained a Master of Science degree in Chiropractic. He is registered with the General Chiropractic Council. Chiropractic has been a central point of focus in his life after having experienced the profound benefits of care himself since early childhood. He is second generation chiropractor – in fact his family counts seven chiropractors! He has diverse practice experience having principally practiced in the UK as well as having consulted in Oslo, Norway. In Norway chiropractors are better integrated within the Norwegian Health Service than is the case in the NHS in the UK.


Due to his always positive outlook and his dedication to meeting patients’ high expectations he has become a well respected figure within the Sussex community. His areas of interest are longstanding low back pain and acute disc injuries. Neck injuries, headaches and chronic head pain also feature prominently in his case load.
The more common conditions affecting babies, children, shoulder, elbow, wrist hip and knee problems as well as pregnancy care are also catered for.

Being a family man he is proactive in ensuring that Chiropractic treatment is gaining its rightful recognition for its primary role in health care assisting people at all stages of life due to its ability to help a wide spectrum of health conditions.

I started working at Best Practice Chiropractic in August 2018 as a Sport Rehabilitation / Sport Massage Therapist providing assessments of sporting and occupational programmes incorporating massage, trigger points, stretching and strengthening exercises tailored to each patients’ individual needs. I strive to achieve the best possible result for my client in order for them to regain their normal function and to return to living life to the full. I graduated at Northampton University with a BSc Honours in Sports Therapy. Throughout my education and after graduating I have acquired a variety of experience in different clinics, sports clubs and working at sports events, such as the London marathon. I also provide rehabilitation programs for Horsham firefighters. I am also qualified as a pregnancy massage therapist. I hold membership of FHT – Federation of Holistic Therapists. Outside work, I am a keen gym enthusiast!

I first became aware of the benefits of Chiropractic care when my husband had such a positive outcome following treatment for back pain at Best Practice Chiropractic. He noticed a great overall improvement in his general health and well being. Having chiropractic myself, I noticed my posture was much better and a real difference in my sleep quality too.It is a real pleasure to be working as part of a team that is dedicated to help each and everyone that comes to the clinic to reach their health goals -the natural way.
