ED BURDETT, M.Ost
Ed graduated from University in Leeds with his Masters degree in Osteopathy in 2015, and has been working in practice ever since. Ed has, and continues to work with, a variety of patients, to include: those of all ages suffering with general muscle aches and joint pains; ladies suffering with pre and postnatal pain; those suffering with chronic pain; and not to mention, elite professional athletes. He is also one of a small number of Osteopaths in the UK to have worked for the NHS providing specialist treatment.
Ed is passionate about continuing his own clinical development and identifying new and different treatment approaches for the benefit of his patients. He has furthered his skills with a number of post-graduate and development courses including: Medical Dry Needling (Acupuncture); Spinal Manipulation Therapy; and Prenatal Care.
During a consultation with Ed, he will take the time to listen to your case history in order to asses and collaboratively prescribe a tailored treatment plan to fit your diagnosis. Ed believes the prescription of targeted exercise, not only for the affected area, but for the supporting muscles and joints is the best form of rehabilitation and pain management.
