Edd HenstridgeMSK Lead Podiatrist
Edd is our Musculoskeletal Lead Podiatrist, having joined Eclipse in 2021. He graduated from the University of Southampton in 1999 with an honour’s degree in Podiatry. Since then he has gone on to spend 16 years in the NHS, followed in 2015 by a move to work in a well-established private clinic in Salisbury where he was the Musculoskeletal Specialist and Clinical Lead Podiatrist, working closely with the Consultant Surgeons.
As well as being an expert in foot and ankle mechanics, he is also an accredited foot and ankle Ultrasonographer and a fully qualified injection therapist. This ties in rather well with his knowledge of orthotic prescription and manufacture.
During your consultation with Edd, he will ask questions regarding your medical and injury history as well as specific questions about your symptoms. Then if you are happy, he will go on to examine your foot and have a closer look at the painful area and assess the structures involved. He has diagnostic ultrasound available in clinic to give you a confirmed diagnosis. From this, he will be able to advise you what treatment options you have available, which could be anything from exercise therapy to gait analysis to injection therapy to orthoses. He will look to provide you with all the information you need for you to make an informed decision about what treatment options you have available.
Throughout his career Edd has always sought what is best for his patient’s and will not hesitate to discuss, suggest, and refer to any other professionals that both you and he feel would be of benefit to your treatment. You, and if requested your GP, will be always be copied into any correspondence.
Outside of work Edd has a wife and young daughters that he enjoys spending time with. He continues to enjoy playing hockey at his local club with reasonable success despite getting older and with a dodgy right knee. When not in a pandemic, he helps run a local real ale festival that raises money for good causes.
