Matthew Glithero MOsT, BSc (Hons),
Matthew Glithero is an Osteopath, Cranial Osteopath, Pilates Instructor, Sports Massage Therapist with a background in Sports Science (BSc).
He is a dynamic Osteopath in London who delivers bespoke treatments aimed to reducing pain. Helping you feel better and empowering you to pro-actively manage your own symptoms.
Matthew wants to know how he can add value. It may be that you have seen other practitioners and felt some benefit but your symptoms are still persisting. In which case, it’s time to try something different.
His Osteopathic approach focuses on identifying the patient’s functional and training issues which could have contributed to injury. Matthew aims to address your constitution and questions how healing times could be increased. He uses a range of hands-on techniques including muscular stretching, joint articulation and manipulation (only when appropriate and always with consent).
Growing up he was always active playing football, badminton, swimming and athletics. He has always been around sports and sporting injuries. Matthew experienced low back pain after playing football as a teenager at which point saw an Osteopath, Physiotherapist and Chiropractor. For him he found the Osteopath treatment to be very effective and loved the narrative behind the treatment. The hands on treatment and alternative to take pain medication was attractive. However it wasn't until his late twenties when he decided to change careers and retrain as an Osteopath.
He believes Pilates aligns well with the osteopathic narrative to increase postural awareness. Also to perform meaningful movements and to stay well. The sessions work well for patients recovering from injuries and surgery to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. Pilates can pro-actively prevent injuries by increasing body awareness. Matthew gained his advanced Pilates Matwork and Pilates Equipment Instructor training from the Australian, Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute.
As a Massage Therapist he delivers professional, effective treatments focused on reducing muscular tension to support active lifestyles and demanding job roles. He has worked with a range of athletes (marathon runners, triathletes and volleyball players to name a few) supporting them with regular treatment to help clients achieve their goals.
Outside of work Matthew loves a challenge and has completed two marathons and climbed Kilimanjaro. Moreover he enjoys travelling, nature and light hearted conversations with patients. Follow him on Linkedin, Facebook and Instagram for Wellthy posts!
