Eds Chesters qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 2010. He currently has dual responsibility as Practice Manager and a senior osteopath at the clinic.
Eds’ dad was a GP, which in part inspired him to pursue a career as a health professional. A love of problem-solving and the physical nature of osteopathic practice also appealed to Eds.
“I think it is important that I enable patients to understand the mechanism which has led to their injury and pain – it is not always obvious.”
As a father of two Eds enjoys an enriched lifestyle, which revolves around osteopathic practice, family, and the odd reunion gig with his old band.
Eds’ clinical experience is broad based across the whole community treating both children and adults. His keen interest in trail running has led to studies into gait and foot mechanics.
“I will always try to find a solution to foot or gait problems with manual manipulation and muscle strengthening first, but if necessary I can help source the right shoe insert”
You can find Eds and his four-legged running partner, Molly, at the Pitshanger Park 5k run on Saturday mornings 9am; he is always keen to talk to people about their running goals.
