Nigel Gildersleve BSc Hons Ost trained at the London School of Osteopathy obtaining a BSc Hons in Osteopathy in 2000.
During his training he embraced the modern imaging techniques, that have become an important part of the diagnosis for patients attending The London Spine Clinic.
This was made possible by Dr Simon Blease FRCR FFSEM, a Musculo-skeletal Radiologist who set up the first Harley Street Open MRI Center, and is a highly valued member of the team.
Nigel was an International level Squash Coaching professional for 20 years, giving over 25,000 lessons throughout UK, Europe & the Middle East, and discovered Osteopathy following a back injury moving house!

His time in the squash world exposed him to a varied spectrum of sports injuries, and has a personal interest in sports injuries, their treatment and rehabilitation, and is an active member of The British Association of Sports & Exercise Medicine.
Current Research & Further Professional Development
With “office neck pain” being so prevalent, and worsening due to our ever increasing time spent hunched over one or more gadgets, this type of injury now occupies over half of my caseload. As a result of ongoing research over the last ten years, into what I label Forward Head Posture(FHP), I have created a system of assessment, diagnosis & treatment that is world class. Reinforced with evidence based protocols for rehabilitation that are unique to my clinic.
Spinal Rehabilitation – Back & Core strengthening – Incorporating Evidence based rehabilitation programs that get results and allow a quicker return to normal daily activities.
