Ed Burdett's Expertise
Ask Ed Burdett a Question
Ed has been an exceptional professional in the course of his osteopathic treatment of me. He genuinely took time to hear about my history and incorporate any extra bits I suddenly remembered so as to build up a complete picture of my background and goals. This showed as he was able to comprehensively able to deal with relatively serious MCL/ Meniscus damage in my left knee. He recognised that I am curious about the workings of the body, so earnestly indulged my questions and queries, offering insight and resources for further investigations. He even let me borrow a book of his so as to learn a bit more myself. Rather than simply addressing the problem for which I originally turned up, Ed worked with me to optimise my physiological health and training by offering guidance for adapting my ice hockey-orientated training in the best possible way. Throughout Ed was delightfully friendly and personable. On the whole Ed seems an ideal health professional! If I could afford it I would work with him every week!
