Jan grew up in Vordingborg 90 km south of Copenhagen in Denmark. After several failed treatments for lower back pain at the age of 11, chiropractic eventually provided the relief he and his family had been looking for. From that point his heart was set on becoming a chiropractor.

After graduating in 1992 from the Anglo-European Collge of Chiropractic in Bournemouth he moved to Worthing where he practised as an associate for four years. In 1996 he and Sarah opened Park View Acupuncture & Chiropractic Clinic. He uses various chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Activator, Thompson Drop, Sacro-Occipital tecnique and Dry Needling.

Jan has a daughter, Anya who like him is a very keen golfer. He is an active member and Past Chairman of Worthing Round Table 41 Club.

After spending 4 years working as a masseur at various well-renowned health farms in Oxfordshire and Berkshire in the early 1980s, a chance conversation with one of his clients at the time led Roger away from following an osteopathic carreer choosing chiropractic instead.

He graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in 1988 and in 1989 he opened Worthing Chiropractic Clinic practising there for 28 years. He continues expanding his knowledge and skills in related health care programmes and he has evolved his own unique blend of chiropractic including manual and Activator adjustment procedures, Cranial Therapy, massage and kinesiology into a highly effective system for the treatment of a wide range of conditions. In 2003 he was awarded the Advanced Activator Proficiency Rating.

In his mission to provide people with a natural approach to well-being, Roger compliments his love of chiropractic with interests in yoga and meditation.

In early 2017 he joined our team at Park View.
