Your Health Matters
Providing excellence in healthcare on the Gold Coast since 1980
Your Health Matters - Group Practice
There is an overwhelming choice of health care services in South East Queensland. Literally thousands of practitioners providing all manner of treatment from specialist medical to weirdly esoteric. If you can imagine it, somebody does it.
Whilst our practice is one of many, we have the distinction of being the first "holistic" practice on the Gold Coast. Our original location in "Trust House" (Surfers' Paradise) was established in 1980. We think that makes us the oldest practice in the region, but we really don't want to shout about that particular distinction.
We were also the first to offer the spectrum of chiropractic/osteopathy, natural health and medical services in the one practice. That really is something to talk about...
Many adjusting methods and techniques, choose from: HVLA (high velocity-low amplitude) Drop Table, Diversified, SOT, NET, Applied Kinesiology, Manual & Computerised Impulse Instrument, no force, very gentle Instrument adjusting safe for osteoporosis.
Over the years our practice team has grown and changed; practitioners maturing and venturing into their own clinics, pursuing further study, retiring or just going separate ways. The core has evolved, time and experience are great teachers, but always with the same philosophy that your health matters.
Since 1985, we have been located in the geographic centre of the Gold Coast, near the Nerang Rail Station.
Our patients from Brisbane get to us in 45 minutes on the M1 motorway (take exit 71). The train takes 55 minutes and you get to sit back and look at the scenery. From the south, the Pacific Highway becomes the M1 just a few kilometres south of our turnoff. Look for the signage directing you to Nerang Station. The exit is number 71.
Your Health Matters is a group practice, with several "specialists" working in their chosen field
Our emphasis is the physical; prevention still takes second place to crisis care, not because we want it to, but more people come to us injured than well. We are interested in structural biomechanics, from the feet up, and we have a physiotherapist who can assess foot pronation and heat mold orthotics for immediate use.
We provide the 'structural' care that is exclusive to Chiropractic:
Detection and correction of vertebral misalignment, attention to nerve supply interference emphasising adjustment of any spinal subluxations and thorough biomechanical (non-surgical) assessment of para-spinal health problems, this includes the pelvis, sacro-iliac joints, rib cage and occipital articulations.
We provide the 'functional' care for which Osteopathy is best known;
Postural therapy, neuromuscular integration & gentle manipulative procedures, correction of gait, stance & body-use plus custom moulded orthotics to correct lower limb mechanics.
In Australia, the merging of chiropractic & osteopathy is quite rare, with few practitioners holding both qualifications. We believe that the clinical integration of these complementary health practices provides the best health care outcomes for you. We have coined the term "osteo-practic", for the combination of these disciplines.
We are definitely more structurally oriented than metaphysical, and we do have a naturopath on site.
We lean to the scientific rather than the spiritual...our Reiki practitioner also has a Bachelor of Science degree. We refer most patients for X-ray if they have a spinal condition. (Not just a one-off sore back, an actual condition.) If your condition is not suited to our care, we will refer you to the most appropriate practitioner.
East meets West with a combination of Osteopathy & Chiropractic, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Myotherapy & Massage, Applied Kinesiology & Pilates. We teach postural therapy in the style of Alexander and have created a whole body stretching routine with bits borrowed from Tai Chi, Yoga and the stretching guru, Anderson. We are very fond of myofascial therapy trigger point dry needling and biomesotherapy.
