Physiotherapist

Ed has worked in private practice in Australia and for 34 years at D’Arcy Bain Physiotherapy as a physiotherapist and clinic coordinator. After 40 years of clinical practice Ed’s approach continues to evolve. Treating symptoms may be necessary initially but Ed believes most pain treatments are temporary. His emphasis is on the “Why” a problem has developed. Ed’s tool bag is extensive but exercise, activity and load management are essential. The patient’s goals are always considered when choosing a treatment plan. Outside of work, Ed enjoys spending time with his wife and family. Ed has many passions besides physiotherapy and they include adventure travel, running, tennis, yoga, cross country skiing, canoeing, curling and fitness. Ed is committed to lifelong learning and adjusting his practice to recent research and scientific evidence.
