Andy Nicholettos’ career in healthcare began with a first class degree in Sport and Exercise Science. It was here that Andy developed an interest in strength and conditioning practice, and the relationship between exercise, health and disease.

Following this, Andy completed a Master’s degree in Osteopathy at University College Osteopathy (UCO – previously known as the British School of Osteopathy), and was awarded the school’s prestigious Silver Medal Award, and the RK Hardy Prize for obtaining the highest academic and clinical marks in his year group, and for research excellence respectively. As an adjunct to his clinical training at UCO, Andy spent two years working with the musculoskeletal physiotherapy team at Kings College London, where he developed a more in depth understanding of physical rehabilitation following musculoskeletal injury.

Andy amalgamated his broad interest in sport, musculoskeletal and exercise medicine with a second Master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Medicine at University College London, where he was mentored by internationally recognised clinicians spanning pain and orthopaedic medicine. At this point, Andy completed additional training in America with the prestigious Gray institute, and is one of a select number of therapists in the world who is certified in, and is a Fellow of Applied Functional Science.Sports Osteopath - Andy Nicholettos

Since he qualified, Andy has worked in both NHS and private settings. He was one of the first osteopaths in the country to work in an extended scope role, where he continued to develop his interest in ‘non resolving’ conditions of the spine, shoulder and knee. In this role Andy blended traditional osteopathic hands on skills with personalised exercised based prescription and mindfulness based methods.

Unsurprisingly, Andy has a specialist interest in sports medicine, and has worked with a number of professional and recreational elite athletes spanning many sports, including athletics, Crossfit and golf. He is one of a select number of certified Nike Golf Performance Specialists to operate in the world, and is the author of the book – ‘a movement in golf performance’, and several peer reviewed papers.
