  • About David

    David Ede graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2005, and went on to complete his Masters in Sport and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary University and Barts University, London in 2011. 

    He has published research on tendon injury and worked with world experts in this area. David has also developed an injury screening tool for individuals and clubs to use for pre-season assessment. He has expertise in all types of musculoskeletal problems but is particularly interested in the care, prevention and rehabilitation of sporting injuries.

    David established Ede therapies in 2014, having worked for a large corporate for the previous 3 years. Prior to this he was an extended scope practitioner in the NHS specialising in foot and ankle injuries.

    In addition to sporting injuries, David treats all the usual range of general physiotherapy conditions. He specialises in spinal injuries and rehabilitation and believes you are entitled to the same level of expertise and rehabilitation whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior or non-sporting. He offers convenient daytime and evening appointments to suit you.

    He prefers to treat patients with soft-tissue mobilisation, joint mobilisation and manipulation. A strong emphasis is placed on re-education of joint proprioception and stabilising muscles to help prevent re-occurrence of injury.

    He has close associations with main hospitals and gymnasiums in the area and numerous clinics and medical centres have referred patients to him. In his spare time, David is a keen athlete, runner and swimmer and fully understands the commitment and passions of modern sports participants.

    David has treated me on a number of occasions for various sports injuries. He has shown a genuine interest in my problems and has helped in my recovery. David has been helpful in giving advice on exercises for me to continue after treatment.

    I was treated by David for lower back pain and "wonky" legs when horse riding. I went from Osteo, to physic to David and no one has fixed my problems faster and more professional. I was wonky in the saddle for a while, causing me to tense up and compensate all over, through my shoulders and through my lower back, causing constant pain all the time, even worse when trying to ride a variety of horses. David soon fixed me up and gave me exercises and stretches to do at home to focus on strengthening my core. Safe to say I can ride without pain now, just the occasional ache if I do too much, but I'm more aware thanks to David of how to manage it all. Thank you David!

    I have seen Dave several times over the years for various sports related injuries. I compete in natural bodybuilding and being able to train is really important. Dave understands this and gets me fixed quickly every time and helps me to work around injuries so I don't have to stop training. He understands the demands and goals of high level athletes and I respect his knowledge and he is one of the few people I will actually listen to! I have had disappointing experiences with other physiotherapists in past but Dave not only knows his clinical stuff but he can apply it to people who want to train/perform at a high level

    I really cannot recommend Ede Therapies highly enough! Dave has been treating my back and from the first session with him I noticed immediate results. Dave has provided excellent treatment, ongoing care and advice and I am certain I would not be recovering so quickly, were it not for him. My experience of the service offered by both Dave and Jody has been highly professional, friendly and very reassuring. Thank you so much Ede Therapies!

    I started seeing Dave after slipping a disc and was in a right mess. With treatment and exercises and advice between sessions there was a vast improvement. After having seen a chiropractor for over fifteen years folding a horse riding accident, I only wish I'd started seeing Dave sooner as my back has been better now than it has been in almost twenty years. Even with my propensity for finding new ailments - in my ankle, my shoulder - Dave just shakes his head and puts me right. I really cannot recommend this guy highly enough.
