Do I need a referral to see an Osteopath?

You do not need a referral from a GP unless your consultation is to be under a Medicare GP management plan or through the Department of Veteran Affairs.

What should I wear to my consultation?

For osteopaths to get the best picture of what is going on for your body, clothing that is functional and easily movable in is the best fit. Jeans and tight clothing may restrict the treatment.

How many consultations will I need?

This depends on many varying factors – for example: how long you have had the problem for, your health and your occupation.

Do I need to bring in my X-rays and scans?

Please bring in any medical scans or X-rays with you.

Am I covered with Private Health Insurance?

Partial rebates are available for members of Private Health Funds with ancillary or “extras” cover, but the amount of rebate and the conditions vary from insurer to insurer, so the details of your policy should be checked before your appointment.

Can I be treated if I am Pregnant?

Pregnancy Osteopathy Treatment can occur during all stages of pregnancy. It is a gentle way to relieve the aches and pains related to the rapid changes of the body during this time.
