What to expect at your first chiropractic visit
Your first chiropractic visit includes a discussion about your health-related history, goals, concerns, expectations, and treatment options.
Next, you will be given a series of focused examinations including neurological, orthopedic, postural, and other movement assessments. This will give us a better insight into your condition by examining your joints, nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
After an explanation of what we have found, treatment is delivered. We are experts in delivering soft tissue therapy and when warranted, chiropractic adjustments. We test and retest to make sure we are on the right track. It is not unusual to feel the difference immediately.
Results can vary depending on your condition and your treating practitioner will give an honest estimate of how long treatment can take. We utilise a range of techniques to give you the best chance of getting back into action.
Please also wear comfortable clothes and if you prefer to wear a gown, we’ll happily give you one.
What other medical information should I bring to my first chiropractic visit?
If you have existing X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, or other imaging relevant to your current condition, please bring these to your first visit.
Depending on your problem, we may also refer you for an X-ray, CT scan, and MRI. These images help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you.
These types of imaging may also alert us of any fractures, tumors, infection, and congenital anomalies. They can also act as blueprints of your skeleton and will help us detect any abnormalities and accelerated degeneration.
Do you accept Private Health Cover Rebates for chiropractic care?
Yes, we accept private health cover claims from all funds.
All our treatments are covered under “Chiropractic” if you have “Extras” as part of your Private Health Cover.
Get instant Health Fund Cover claims/rebates with our HICAPS facility at our front desk.
Payments for our services are processed at the time of your consultation. This means you effectively pay a gap between our chiropractic fees and your rebate amount. This rebate amount depends upon your level of Private Health Cover.
Please call your health fund directly to ask about your rebate level as this is specific to your health insurance plan.
Please bring your Private Health Card with you to all appointments. It is usually difficult to make Health Fund claims retrospectively through our HICAPS facility for past appointments. However, retrospective claims may be made directly with your private health fund.
How can I pay for my treatment?
We accept Mastercard, Visa, AMEX, EFTPOS, and cash.
