Chiropractic Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen on my first visit?
The first consultation will focus on ascertaining a working diagnosis. We will reach this by means of a comprehensive history and a thorough examination.
If we think we can help you, we will let you know immediately, and may often provide some preliminary treatment.
If the complexity of the case requires further testing (X-Rays, MRI, blood tests etc.), we will assist this process.
If your diagnosis requires further management, we will refer you appropriately and liaise with your general practitioner on your behalf.
Please allow 45-60 minutes for this appointment.
What will happen on my second visit?
Once we have garnered the diagnostic information we need, we will discuss with you our treatment approach, your schedule of care, and any treatment modalities we believe will prove useful.

Do I need a referral?
While a number of our patients are referred to us from their general practitioner or a specialist, a referral is not mandatory. However, with Connect Healthcare’s multidisciplinary approach to patient care, practitioners will collaborate with your medical team (where appropriate) to ensure that you receive the best possible health care.
Can I claim on private health insurance or Medicare?
Chiropractic treatments are usually covered by all major private health funds under their ‘extras’ cover. The benefit paid for chiropractic services varies depending on your level of cover, and annual limits do apply. For more information, please check with your private health fund.
You may be referred to us by your General Practitioner under the Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program, previously known as the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Program. Under your CDM referral, you will be able to claim a portion of your fees from Medicare, up to a maximum of 5 visits each year.
