Dr. Nigel Jackson – Osteopath – completed a bachelor of Clinical Science (Majoring in Human Structure and Function and Osteopathic Studies) and a Masters of Osteopathic Medicine at Lismore, SCU. He has been working on the Gold Coast for the past few years before coming to treat at Optimum Wellbeing Centre.
Nigel grew up in a healthcare environment as both his parents and grandparents were Chiropractors/Herbalists so he understands that each patient is unique and therefore requires their own treatment plan. His passion for osteopathy grew from when he was a child suffering from leukaemia. He wanted to find a career in which he could help others and treat holistically, helping the body find it’s natural balance and heal fully. The trials and challenges he experienced at that young age has resulted in Nigel’s aptitude in treating young people and why he is now part of make-a-wish foundation.
Outside of work, Nigel is a volunteer branch president for Make-A-Wish Australia and enjoys camping and bushwalking.
