On the Gold Coast there is such a versatile demographic and our osteopaths enjoy the variety of working with all ages.
Osteopaths in Australia undergo a 5-year university degree, and must be approved and registered with the Osteopathic Registration Board (AHPRA) in order to practice. Osteopaths are then required to complete additional study each year, with each practitioner often choosing to pursue training and courses in areas of particular interest to them.
Opening Eclipse Health and Osteopathy here on the northern Gold Coast was to fulfil a void in Osteopathic care that we identified. We felt the residents of the northern Gold Coast (Runaway Bay, Hollywell, Helensvale, Paradise Point, Sanctuary Cove, Coombabah, Hope Island and surrounds) deserved and could benefit from another treatment option.
We fully understand that sometimes patients like to go to different practitioners for different conditions, and we believe osteopathic treatment can be great as a standalone option, or collaboratively with other methods. Our osteopaths routinely work with other allied health professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrist, dentists and of course work collaboratively with your General Practitioner (GP) and surgeons.

What is Osteopathy? How Can Osteopathy Help Me?
The short answer to “How can Osteopathy help me?” is, in just about anyway you need. Osteopaths have such a wide range of skills and techniques at their disposal, which really resonates well with the varied demographic here on the Gold Coast.
Osteopaths will generally focus on your Neuro-Musculoskeletal System – muscles, nerves, bones and other tissues that support your body. They will take a holistic approach to your care, and continually adjust this to suit your needs best at the time of your visit.
Initially that may be working on a problem area or specific injury, but over time a quick “tune-up” or a maintenance visit may be all it takes to keep you in optimal condition.
Seeing an Osteopath at Eclipse Health on the Gold Coast for the first time will involve a comprehensive examination and assessment of your medical history and current conditions. You will receive hands-on treatment, often targeted at the muscular areas identified in your examination. Additionally your Osteopath will often provide you with a reasonable and flexible treatment plan, containing self-care measures, posture, exercise and stretching.
Treatment plans will vary from case to case and each Osteopath has their own style. But here at Eclipse Health and Osteopathy, we’re strong believers in the “Find it, Fix it, and Leave it alone” mentality.
Realistically as a general guideline, most acute cases will require 3-5 treatments for the full therapeutic benefits to be realised. But please do keep in mind that on rare occasions some patients may experience a slight discomfort following their treatment, however this should subside quickly within a couple of days as a guide.
With your permission our experienced Osteopaths will employ a wide range of techniques to manipulate your body to improve overall function.
These can include:
Cranial Osteopathy (OCF)
Exercise and postural advice
The goal is to bring your body back to homeostasis where the skeleton, ligaments, joints, muscles and connective tissues are functioning smoothly together. In biological terms, Homeostasis can be considered a healthy state that is maintained by constant adjustment of biochemical and physiological pathways, within the human body.
