Ed Madeley – Principal Osteopath
Ed started treating patients with sports massage therapy, working at elite level football and rugby clubs and players. This proved to be enjoyable, but Ed wanted to expand his horizons into clinical practice, so went to University to study sports rehabilitation and injury prevention, and then Osteopathy in Kent.
Due to his previous experience, Ed noticed he saw patterns early on in his training which helped him identify musculoskeletal and postural deficiencies in patients. This tied in with developed interpersonal skills and a fantastic bedside manner makes Ed a reliable and trustworthy practitioner. This is reflected in reviews on social media by patients past and present.
Ed specialises in:
- General back/hip pain
- Sporting injuries
- Shoulder pain
Nathan Squire – Associate Osteopath
Outside of Osteopathy Nathaniel is a keen activist passionate about the planet and animal rights. In particular, he has a special place in his heart for our canine friends and often goes to visit his Black Labradoodle called Dexter in Bristol. Nathaniel is also a firm believer in keeping fit, and can often be found at the gym, doing calisthenics at the park or trying to stretch out his incredibly tight hamstrings on the yoga mat.

What will happen during the initial consultation?
The purpose of the initial consultation is to first and foremost examine if the patient would benefit from osteopathic treatment as well as exercise & rehabilitation. This is done through a series of questions, musculoskeletal and neurological testing to establish a diagnosis. Typical initial consultation time is 45 minutes.
A general medical screen would be filled out, some questions may or may not appear relevant, but as osteopaths we are primary healthcare practitioners, so we have your whole health to look out for.
Assessment would require the practitioner to reproduce the pain to substantiate the diagnosis. Sometimes the source of the problem may not be the same as the pain, but this will be explained.
Treatment may start after a full assessment and explanation of the aliment as well as a layout of the options. Treatment includes manipulation, mobilisation, dry needling, taping, stretching and exercise programmes to maximise the potential of the treatment.What will happen during follow up appointments
After the options are laid out, if you choose to undergo treatment there will be a discussion over what modality to try. The follow up appointment will involve a catch up on how things have been feeling, re-assessment then treatment. We want to get patients better in as little time as possible, but we also believe in patient autonomy, so you decide what treatment option you want to try. Typical reassessment time is 20/30 minutes.
