WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTOR?

A chiropractor is a registered healthcare clinician who has expertise in the area of non-pharmacological, non-surgical neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis and management.

Chiropractors have a minimum of five years university training, which includes basic sciences, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, neurology, immunology, microbiology, histology, pathology, critical thinking, differential diagnosis, radiology, radiography, biomechanics, electrophysical therapies, rehabilitation, and manual treatment.

REFER TO CHIROPRACTIC FOR:

Diagnosis & management of spine or extremity mechanical or neurological pain syndromes.

The typical day for a chiropractor involves diagnosis and management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, such as neck pain, thoracic pain, lower back pain, disc issues, sciatica, cervical radiculopathy, headaches (migraine, cervicogenic and tension), jaw pain, shoulder, knee, hip, wrist, foot, and ankle conditions. We also have an interest in BPPV and vestibular rehabilitation, as well as lower back pain and posterior pelvic pain during pregnancy.

COST TO YOUR PATIENT:

PRIVATE PATIENTS:

A rebate will apply for those who have private health cover. We also apply a discount for patients with a healthcare card. Standard fees are $110.00 initial and $63.00 follow up.

EPC/CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT:

A co-payment applies for the initial consultation. Consultations after that are bulk billed for concession card holders. For non-concession card holders there is a $9.20 gap for subsequent consultations.

WORKERS COMPENSATION/MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS:

There are no out-of-pocket expenses for patients.

DVA (DEPT. OF VETERANS’ AFFAIRS):

We accept DVA patients, and no out-of-pocket expense applies.

WHAT YOUR PATIENT CAN EXPECT?

Chiropractic patients can expect a long initial consultation in which a full history and examination will be performed. This consultation may be 45 minutes to 1 hour. A clinical impression/diagnostic statement and proposed management will be developed. All patients go through an informed consent process. Imaging will be ordered, if required. The length of follow up consultations will depend on the number and complexity of issues to be dealt with.

The nature of treatment varies greatly, depending on many patient factors. Chiropractic treatment may involve a combination of advice, exercises, chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy (cSMT) and/or myofascial therapy. Chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy (cSMT) encompasses a very large range of hands on adjustments, mobilisations and mechanically assisted therapies. Patient safety and preference, as well as potential efficacy, inform the choice of treatment modality. Naturally, informed consent is obtained for any proposed treatment.
