Graduate Sports Therapist
Ed has practiced as a Graduate Sports Therapist since qualifying in 2006 with BSc (hons) Sports Therapy from London Metropolitan University. He spent a year working as a junior therapist at a national league level rugby club before moving on to become Head of Medical at a club in London 1 South. He also practiced privately, treating clients from non-athletes to badminton players to triathletes.
Alongside practice Ed lectured part time at London Metropolitan University and later at the University of Kent. In 2010 Ed moved to Herefordshire having accepted a full time lecturing post at University of Gloucestershire where he taught as lecturer then senior lecturer across both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including a 3-year tenure as Course Leader for their BSc (hons) Sports Therapy program.
In 2017 Ed decided to move back to practicing rather than teaching Sports Therapy. He is back in the rugby world, working with a National League 2 North club, and seeing private clients from a wide range of backgrounds.

Ed is available for assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions, whether sports injuries or from everyday activities. He is also available for sports massage, kinesiotaping and a range of other treatments.
Book in with Ed:
“My first visit/treatment – I found Edward to be friendly and very knowledgeable. He gave me helpful and easy to understand advice. The pressure applied to certain points was quite painful but it did ease somewhat with treatment and anyway I was prepared for that to be the case – a case of no pain no gain. I left feeling optimistic about my prospects of seeing some noticeable reduction in the stiffness and pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back. A very good and positive experience. Looking forward to the follow up appointment and hoping for further benefits from the treatment.” RE
