MOsT, BSc (Hons), MSCCO

Matthew Glithero is a Musculoskeletal specialist: A Pilates Instructor, Osteopath and Cranial Osteopath.

Osteopathy (MOst – Master of Osteopathy)
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.

His Osteopathic approach focuses on identifying the patient’s functional and training issues which could have contributed to injury. Matthew questions your barriers to recovery and how healing times could be improved. 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 lots of different team sports so has always been around sporting injuries. Matthew experienced lower back pain after playing football as a teenager at which point he saw an Osteopath. For him, he found the Osteopathic treatment to be very effective and loved the narrative behind the treatment. The hands on treatment as an alternative to take pain medication was effective and gave him a thirst to learn more! However, it wasn’t until his late twenties when he decided to change career paths and retrain as an Osteopath.

"As soon as I met Matthew I felt like I was in safe hands. I was experiencing ankle, knee, hip and lower back pains. He instantly diagnosed the problem in language that immediately made sense to me and then got to work. This was a great relief given my previous experiences with other practitioners. He used a mixture of hands on Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy and gave me rehab homework exercises which have made a massive difference. I'm now a regular Pilates goer at Wellthy Clinic and have returned to training (running) which is not only going well but better than before! Thank you.

"A great clinic. Clean, bright and spacious. When I booked my first appointment with Matthew, the pain was part of my daily life. After 2 osteopathic treatments, not only that I had no pain on my lower back but I’ve learned a lot of things which really improved my health. Matt is an exceptional osteopath, I have had excellent treatment from him. Thank you!"

Rehabilitation Pilates
As a Pilates Instructor he believes this aligns well with the osteopathic narrative to increase postural awareness. Involving exercise rehab with meaningful movements is all important to stay well. The rehabilitation Pilates sessions work well for patients recovering from injuries and surgery to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. Sessions can pro-actively prevent injuries by increasing body awareness. He gained his advanced Pilates Matwork and Pilates Equipment Instructor training from the Australian, Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute.
