Chiropractors are highly qualified health care professionals that are regulated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). In Australia, Chiropractors are required to study an extensive approved and accredited five-year university degree. This consists of either a five-year bachelor of Chiropractic, or a three-year bachelor followed by a two-year Masters degree. It is also possible to apply for registration in Australia if a chiropractor has completed a program or degree that is approved by the Council of Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA) who assesses the quality of knowledge, education and training.
In addition to their education/ degree, chiropractors are required to continue training and learning throughout their career in order to maintain registration. This involves completing continued professional development (CPD) training or seminars on a yearly basis.
No. You can seek the assistance of a Chiropractor independently and self-refer.
During your initial consultation, your chiropractor will determine if x-rays are required. If x-rays are necessary, you will be given a referral to have them taken at a x-ray clinic. These costs are fully covered by Medicare. If you have had any spinal x-rays, bring them with you on your first visit as this will help determine the best treatment for you.
Yes, Chiropractic is claimable as an ‘extra’ under private health insurance, generally as a separate allowance to Physiotherapy. The rebate available does differ from fund to fund so check your fund to see your entitlements.
Yes. In recent years, the Federal Government initiated the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan which is funded by Medicare. People who satisfy the criteria for “chronic pain” are entitled to up to five (5) treatments per calendar year from allied health providers. We do not charge a ‘gap’ payment for EPC Chiropractic consultations.
