Ed Madeley - Movement and Wellbeing Clinic Manchesater

Ed Madeley – principal physician

Ed started treating patients with sports massage therapy, working at elite level football and rugby clubs such as Altrincham F.C and Sale Sharks. 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 eventually 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.

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. 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.


What our clients Say

Ed has been wonderful to sit with and talk to about common injuries and anatomy. I take a great interest in it and certain mornings we would nerd out together which I will miss terribly as I have learned a lot from him. 

Graziella Väcklén


Ed has been a life changing person to meet. His knowledge and professionalism are second to none. He has helped me with not only my fitness goals but put on me onto a life changing mindset which influences my choices around fitness, food and life. He will always come highly recommended and I'm a big fan of his one-to-one style, even on an online program.

Ed has been treating me for back pain from a sporting injury I suffered years ago. He was very professional and knowledgeable, and has given me the most effective pain relief out of all the therapists I've been to. Thanks Ed!

Samuel Connell


I have been seeing Ed for well over a year now. I have autism and there for need things explained in more detail. Ed was delighted that I had been so open about my situation because he said that he would be able to give me a much better service if he understood all of my needs.

Ian Bayly

I have been seeing Ed for about 2 months now due to a recent hip operation alongside suffering from hypermobility. When I first saw Ed I was still on crutches and had extremely painful joints from not being able to do anything to keep the hypermobility under control.
