Matthew Glithero is 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 aims to address your compostion 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 he saw an Osteopath, Physiotherapist and Chiropractor. 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 intriguing. However, it wasn’t until his late twenties when he decided to change career paths and retrain as an Osteopath.
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 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.
He has previously delivered effective massage 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).
Outside of work, he 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!
