Gold Coast Health Centre

Nerang | Broadbeach | Clear Island Waters

The Story Behind

Our aim is to provide our clients with a state of the art service, using up to date technology and advanced treatment methods to have you injury free and feeling great as soon as possible.

Originally started out as a Podiatry Clinic in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast back in 2014, we soon moved on to better things, renting out a fully equipped location in Miami on the Gold Coast.

After sharing the surgery with other allied health professionals to complement our podiatry services for the first few months, we felt the time was right to bring in a Physiotherapist under the ACE brand and reached out to qualified health professionals on the Gold Coast and Greater Brisbane area.

Adding a qualified Physiotherapist to our team in combination with Miami’s excellent infrastructure enables us to provide individual treatments and customised recovery plans for a broad range of injuries for our beloved ACE Health community.

We strive for innovation without compromising quality, and our vision is to continue to evolve as the next generation Health Centre on the Gold Coast. We work tirelessly to add new services and health experts to our arsenal to be able to cater to a broad range of injuries and customer needs.
