Chiropractors

What does a Chiropractor do?

A chiropractor is a government-registered and regulated, university-trained allied health care professional. Chiropractic complements medical services and promotes general health by providing:
• Primary contact with specific diagnostic focus on disorders relating to the spine and nervous system
• Advice on self care in lifestyle factors and movement
• Differential and radiological diagnosis
 

Services

A chiropractor conducts thorough general examinations with particular focus on spinal and neuromuscularskeletal systems.  They work with GPs and other AHPs in multidisciplinary settings to care for people with a wide range of acute or chronic disorders, such as:

  • Acute or chronic back pain
  • Extremity pain and dysfunction
  • Poor mobility
  • Degenerating posture
  • Migraine headaches
  • Osteoarthritis

Trigger points for referring patients to chiropractors include symptoms that may be of spinal origin, such as spine related pain, motion restriction and postural distortion. Chiropractors place significant emphasis on prevention through provision of specialist lifestyle advice and movement. 

Medicare Eligibility  

To provide services under the Medicare chronic disease management items, chiropractors must be registered with the government regulating body where they are practising. Rebates are available from mainstream healthcare funds.


Qualifications

For registration to practice, chiropractors study full-time at university for a minimum of five years, graduating with either a three-year Bachelors degree followed by a Masters degree, or a five-year double degree in Chiropractic Science and Clinical Science.  To maintain quality and safety, chiropractors complete continuing professional development courses and seminars to upgrade and maintain their skills, and to stay current on the latest research.
