FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Chiropractors have the unique privilege of being able to positively impact people’s lives through the provision of natural and non-invasive healthcare methods. They have a deep understanding of the body’s structures and how each interact to affect our health. Using spinal adjustments, manipulation and other physical means to improve neuromusculoskeletal function, chiropractors can help us live healthy and active lives.

Chiropractic is a drug free, surgery free system of healthcare primarily for the musculoskeletal systems (bones, joints, muscles and ligaments) and some of the neurological system (nerves and the spinal cord).

Chiropractors have a minimum of five years university education. In Australia the universities offering degrees in chiropractic are Macquarie (Sydney), Murdoch (Perth), Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (Melbourne) and Central Queensland (MacKay, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney).

In addition to their academic qualifications, chiropractors who want to work in Australia must be registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia and fulfil strict requirements as stipulated by National Law administered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), including annual continuous professional development.

While most patients do come via referral from their general practitioner or specialist, it is certainly not mandatory. However, Marsden Park Chiropractic is always keen to collaborate with your medical team (where appropriate) to ensure that you get the best care possible.

First and foremost we need to understand your medical and health history. Unfortunately many health problems can mimic disorders of the spine and, as such, we will discuss your history in some detail. This will be followed by a comprehensive examination in order to make the most accurate diagnosis.

The initial consultation will usually take between 40 minutes and 1 hour, depending upon the complexity of your case. Whilst a physical examination is very important, your modesty will be preserved at all times and gowns are provided. Please be assured that if we do not think that we can help you, or if our examination reveals any additional concerns, we will refer you appropriately and liaise with your general practitioner on your behalf.

It is not necessary for you to undergo any X-rays or other tests before consulting with Marsden Park Chiropractic. Diagnostic imaging such as X-rays, CT and MRI will only be acquired if clinically indicated. 
The cost of plain film X-rays is largely covered by Medicare (Australian residents only), with only a small out-of-pocket expense. MRI scans are not claimable under Medicare (except when referred by a medical specialist).

Our consultation fees vary depending upon the nature of your visit and the time required. At your initial consultation, or if there is a new problem, our first priority is to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This determines the best course of treatment, or the most appropriate referral to another clinician. So these consultations involve a comprehensive history and discussion, a thorough examination, and a review of any available medical imaging. You may, or may not, be treated at the time of your initial consultation – depending upon whether it is safe and appropriate to do so.

INITIAL CONSULTATION
(or new presentation requiring comprehensive clinical evaluation)
– Fees $130

STANDARD CONSULTATION
(involving soft tissue therapy, guidance on rehab specific movements)

– Fees are $85

In the Health industry, you will get what you pay for. Having worked with professional sports athletes, I have experience with proven results. Hiring the wrong clinician can be risky. Failure to accurately diagnose a problem will lead to incorrect treatment being applied which in turn leads to poor results, lost time and money wasted.

All major private health funds offer cover for chiropractic services – usually on their ‘extras’ table. However, annual limits do apply and the amount that you are reimbursed will vary. Check with your own fund to find out the exact details in your case.

If you are referred by your general practitioner under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan then you are able to claim a portion of your fees from Medicare (up to a maximum of 5 visits per year). You will need to talk to your GP about the appropriate referral.

We do not keep accounts, so payment for all consultations is expected on the day. At the end of your session, you will be issued with a tax invoice which you can then use to claim your rebate via your health insurance provider. Your funds will then be deposited into your chosen bank account (if you have set this up).

If you are in pain then naturally you’ll be keen to start treatment. We understand that. But it is most important that we make an accurate diagnosis first, so that we know exactly what’s causing your problem. Marsden Park Chiropractic will do everything we can to help you as quickly as possible.

Sometimes the situation calls for an X-ray, or an MRI scan, or blood tests first – but we’ll explain all of this to you and will only order these tests if they are truly necessary. In other cases it is safe and appropriate to begin treatment immediately.

Our treatment varies from patient to patient but is specific to your problem. We will focus on getting you out of pain as quickly as possible by:

  • Increasing movement of the joints in your spine through gentle adjustments
  • Reducing tension in your muscles through different stretches and muscle releases
  • Prescribing specific exercise and rehabilitation specific to your problem to help you keep the pain away.

Yes, Chiropractors have been classified as an essential service by the Australian Government.

Marsden Park Chiropractic is doing the following to ensure we minimise the risk of COVID-19 spread in the community. Dr Montgomery Harrison:

  • Sanitises hands in between each patient
  • Wipe down benches between patients with alcohol based sanitising wipes
  • Spray Glen-20 disinfectant spray regularly
  • Have hand sanitiser available for patient use upon arrival
  • Regularly clean EFTPOS machines, door handles and surfaces that patient contact
  • Ask on the phone if patients are feeling symptoms, traveled overseas in the last 4 weeks or have been in close contact with someone who has the Corona Virus
  • Offer that patients remain in their cars until the time of their appointment
  • Staggering patient appointments so that their is a minimum number of people within the clinic
  • Increasing ventilation throughout practices by opening windows and doors for fresh air

Chiropractors are part of allied healthcare in Australia. If you are in pain or your condition is likely to worsen if not seen by a clinician, you can attend. Chiropractors help manage musckuloskeletal conditions and treat neck pain, back pain and muscular tension. Chiropractic offices most often do not have an excessive amount of people within the practice at one time, and therefore can follow the social distancing protocols administered by the Australian Government, these include:

  • Staying 1.5m away from other people
  • Using ‘tap’ EPTPOS instead of cash
  • Avoiding crowds
  • Avoid social gatherings and at risk groups
  • Practicing good hygiene
  • Regularly disinfecting surfaces such as bench tops, Chiropractic tables, massage machines
  • Having meetings over the internet or phone rather than in person
  • Cough or sneeze into tissue or elbow then wash hands immediately
