  • Can I claim through my Heath Private Insurance?
    Yes, our therapists offer health fund rebates for Chiropractic and Remedial Massage treatments. You can claim them on the spot via HICAPS. We accept most private health insurance, but it's always a good idea to check with your health fund to learn about specific details/rebates for your membership. It's worth noting that health funds are run independently from us. If you're looking to claim some therapies through Medicare, you can do so through the Enhanced Primary Care system. For this, you'll need a referral from your doctor.
  • How long are the appointments?
    We offer different chiropractic sessions that you can choose from. The first one is an initial consultation that lasts for 60 minutes. The standard consult lasts for 30 minutes, while the standard consult for a single region treated or for those who need multiple appointments in a week lasts for 15 minutes. We also offer a chiropractic session combined with Myofascial Release that lasts for 60 minutes, which is the favourite appointment for those who want both chiropractor and massage therapy. For most of our other services, the duration ranges from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. If you have a 30-minute appointment, please allow at least 45 minutes in the clinic.
  • Booked my first appointment, and now, what do I need to bring?
    Your private health insurance card or digital one to every appointment. For Chiropractic Appointments: If you have any X-rays, scans, reports, or any other relevant medical documents, it would be helpful to bring them to your first appointment as it will allow our chiropractors to provide you with the best care possible.
  • What should I wear to my appointment?
    In general, we suggest wearing comfortable and loose-fitting clothes. For our Assisted Stretching Sessions, we recommend something you would wear to the gym or yoga studio. It's best to wear clothing that can stretch with your movements. We advise avoiding jeans and slacks as they can restrict your mobility. Also, please always remember to wear underwear.

    We understand that sometimes unexpected things happen, and you may need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. If so, please contact us immediately at 0403 579 729 so that we can arrange a new appointment for you and offer the appointment slot to someone else in need.

  • What is a Chiropractor?
    A chiropractor is a healthcare professional who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, particularly those related to the spine. But, now you wondering, what does a Chiropractor do? Chiropractors employ a variety of methods, with spinal adjustments being a key component. These adjustments aim to improve joint function, alleviate pain, and enhance overall musculoskeletal health. Lear more about Chiropractic Care here
  • What is a chiropractic adjustment?
    A chiropractic adjustment, also known as a (spinal) manipulation, is a therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors to address musculoskeletal issues, particularly those related to the spine. During an adjustment, the chiropractor applies controlled, sudden force to a specific joint, often with their hands or a small instrument. The goal is to improve joint function, alleviate pain, and enhance overall mobility.
  • Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?
    The adjustment itself typically doesn't cause pain, although some individuals may experience mild discomfort. The level of discomfort can vary among individuals and depends on factors such as the specific technique used, and the patient's tolerance. Most people find chiropractic adjustments to be relatively gentle and often experience immediate relief from pain or increased mobility following the procedure.
  • What is Evidence-based Chiropractic care?
    Evidence-based chiropractic care involves the use of interventions supported by scientific research and clinical evidence. In evidence-based chiropractic practice, practitioners rely on a combination of patient history, physical examination, imaging studies, and relevant research to make informed decisions about treatment. The emphasis is on applying interventions that have demonstrated effectiveness and safety through rigorous scientific investigation. The goal is to address musculoskeletal issues, improve mobility, and enhance the overall well-being of individuals while adhering to principles grounded in scientific evidence and research.
  • Why do chiropractic adjustments make noise?
    The popping sound during the procedure is often attributed to the release of gas bubbles in the joint, and it is not necessarily an indicator of the success of the adjustment. It's essential to communicate openly with your chiropractor about any concerns or discomfort you may be experiencing. Chiropractors are trained to adapt their techniques based on individual needs and preferences. If you have specific health conditions or are uncomfortable with the idea of manual adjustments, your chiropractor may use alternative methods or tools to achieve the desired results.
  • What to expect in my first Chiropractic appointment?
    In an evidence-based chiropractic appointment, you can expect a thorough assessment and treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Here's what typically happens during such appointments: Patient History: The chiropractor will begin by taking a detailed history, asking about your current symptoms, past medical history, lifestyle, and any relevant factors contributing to your condition. Physical Examination: A comprehensive physical examination will be conducted, focusing on the musculoskeletal system. This may involve assessing posture, joint mobility, muscle strength, and range of motion. Diagnostic Imaging (if necessary): Based on the assessment, the chiropractor may recommend diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or MRI, to get a more detailed view of the spine and joints. This helps in making an accurate diagnosis. Diagnosis and Treatment Plan: The chiropractor will provide a diagnosis based on the assessment findings. They will explain the nature of your condition, discuss treatment options, and outline realistic expectations for improvement. Evidence-Based Interventions: Evidence-based chiropractic care involves using interventions supported by scientific research. Common treatments may include spinal adjustments, mobilizations, soft tissue techniques, and therapeutic exercises. The chiropractor will explain each intervention, its purpose, and how it contributes to your overall treatment. Education and Self-Care: An essential aspect of evidence-based chiropractic care is patient education. The chiropractor will likely provide information on proper ergonomics, exercises, and lifestyle modifications to enhance your well-being and prevent future issues. Follow-Up Visits: Depending on the nature of your condition, the chiropractor will establish a treatment plan that may involve multiple visits. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress, adjust interventions as needed, and provide ongoing support. Collaboration with Other Healthcare Professionals: If necessary, the chiropractor may collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists, orthopedic specialists, or primary care physicians, to ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to your care. It's important to note that evidence-based chiropractors focus on using interventions with proven efficacy and prioritize patient education. Communication between you and your chiropractor is crucial, so feel free to ask questions, discuss concerns, and actively participate in your care.
  • Do you accept Medicare referrals for Chiropractic appointments?
    Yes we do. If you have a chronic musculoskeletal complaint or persistent health condition, such as diabetes, chronic pain, or heart disease, your general practitioner (GP) might initiate a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Care Plan, previously known as an "EPC." Your GP will issue a referral with a range of 1 to 5 recommended treatments for your chiropractic care. Alternatively, they may suggest other professionals like a Podiatrist or Physiotherapist for some of the allocated 5 treatments. You're limited to utilizing a maximum of 5 treatments per calendar year, spanning across different healthcare providers. These treatments can be made use of within the duration of the care plan, typically a calendar year, enabling you to receive a $58.30 rebate (as of 2024) from the consultation expenses. It's important to note that the 5-treatment limit resets on January 1st each year. Any unused treatments at the end of the year will not carry over to the next calendar year. For individuals of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, there might be an opportunity for an additional 5 consultations per calendar year, following a distinct referral process that your GP is familiar with.
