Do you need a referral from a GP before commencing Chiropractic care?

Treatments are highly individualised and customised to the patient's condition.  No referral is needed from your GP before visiting your Chiropractor.  Chiropractor's are recognised as primary health care professionals, which means that you may consult with them directly.  Life Energy Chiropractic works closely with medical doctors who will refer to a Chiropractor when they believe your condition can be skillfully managed with Chiropractic care.

You are elegible for up to 5 visits from a Chiropractor under Medicare, however a referral from your GP is necessary.  Your Chiropractor will be able to clearly articulate the schedule you will need for your time in care.
