Meet Dr. Edward Bates

Dr Edward Bates headshotDr. Ed didn’t always have his sights set on becoming a chiropractor. He first attended university in the UK to earn a degree in building engineering. “I realized pretty soon into that career that it wasn’t where my future lay.”

What changed Dr. Ed’s career course was learning more about chiropractic from a distant relative (a chiropractor in the city where he went to university). “I saw how he loved his job and decided to attend chiropractic college.”


Education & Professional Development

Dr. Ed earned his degree from Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, in 1995. Dr. Ed served as the European Regional Director for Activator Methods International and is a qualified Activator instructor. He’s also advanced certified in the Zone Technique and is a member of the Chiropractic Association of Ireland.

Finding Fulfillment Helping Others

“From the second I started working as a chiropractor, I knew I had made the right decision.” For him, chiropractic fulfilled everything he was looking for in a career.

Dr. Ed finds it so rewarding to be in a position to make a positive impact on the lives of his patients. He is also very interested in health and wellness and is continually studying and learning.

Dr Bates talking with a patientTaking the Time to Listen

Have you ever felt not listened to or validated at other healthcare practices? When you meet with Dr. Ed, you’ll notice that he’s caring and a good listener. He’s also enthusiastic and confident, knowing that he can provide natural care that gets excellent results for his patients.

Outside the Practice

When he’s not caring for patients’ health and spines, Dr. Ed enjoys spending time with his wife and four children-two girls and two boys. His children are regularly adjusted, and are all very active.

Dr. Ed also enjoys staying fit and has participated in multiple triathlons, including two grueling IRONMAN competitions in 2011 and 2016. As a husband and father, Dr. Ed is keenly aware of the importance of maintaining his health. “Without health, you don’t have anything.”
