In most cases, an appointment with the doctor must be made for results. For results that do not require an appointment, please call our practice nurses between 12.30 – 1.30 and they may be able to provide the information by phone or will make an appointment if follow up with your GP is required.
Your feedback is valued and appreciated. Please obtain a feedback form from reception or talk to our staff.
Chiropractic is defined as a modern health care service focusing on those health disorders related to the spine and its effect on the muscular and nervous systems. For example, mechanical problems of the spine and its joints can cause low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, some migraines, arm and shoulder pain.
Other seemingly unrelated problems like dizziness, hamstring injuries, calf strain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel symptoms, neuralgias and fibrositic complaints can also be contributed to by spinal problems through referral mechanisms. Even patients suffering with arthritic stiffness and pain respond well to Chiropractic treatment.
No referral is necessary to see a Chiropractor. Chiropractors are fully registered and study five years full time to gain their degree. Chiropractic treatment includes therapies such as gentle joint adjustments, mobilisation, massage, heat/ice, ultrasound ergonomic and exercise instruction.
Chiropractic is covered by WorkCover, TAC, DVA, private health funds and may be covered by Medicare.
