Gents are there any texts or links worth reading to get an idea of medical techniques of the medieval era, in particular in relation to combat treatments.

During the 12th century quite a few medieval texts were translated and taught in Universities. Many of these focus on the four humors and medicine involving herbs, minerals and animal parts. I can only provide a few wikipedia links sadly.

And of course practical medicine and surgery:

http://www.booktopia.com.au/the-alphabet-of-g...vQodAKwBvw this is the alphabet of galen, a romano-byzantine era book detailing medical treatents and herbs and minerals... as well at deciphering who wrote it since, while called the alphabet of galen, was not witten by galen

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_Compendium_in_Seven_Books and a sot of early byzantine medical encyclopedia which was used throughout the medieval period, this is just a mention, the article mentions a translation was done in 1844 that may be available

both of these texts would likely have been used iun euopean medical establishments (o, at least those who could afford them)

This is an interesting take on Bradmore's "anointing him on the neck, every day in the morning with an ointment to sooth the muscles, and placed a hot plaster on top, on account of fear of a spasm, which was my greatest fear". I don't have Philomena and can't translate much latin but upon reading the translation in The Great Warbow I had interpreted this to mean a fear of tetanus; though the interpretation of "a spasm" being a fit sounds equally appropriate if the depth of penetration is genuine. I am sure Bradmore knew either would mean curtains for Henry.
