What training do Osteopaths have?
In Australia, Osteopaths complete five years full time university training. We are trained in anatomy, physiology, pathology, Osteopathic technique, general musculoskeletal testing and diagnosis.
We are government registered (AHPRA) allied health care practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions that may require medical referral.

Our practitioners undertake continuing professional development and post graduate courses.

Do I need a referral?
You can make an appointment without a referral.
You may need a referral if you wish to consult an Osteopath under the Veterans Affairs scheme, Comcare, Workcover or Medicare CDM plan.
Is Osteopathy covered by private health insurance, Medicare, workers’ compensation, DVA or Comcare?

Yes. Osteopaths are recognised providers.

  • Private health insurance – please bring your card.
  • Medicare – patients approved by their GP under the CDM program:
    We will require your letter of referral, Medicare card and GP’s provider number.

Osteopathic treatment can be covered by Medicare if you are eligible for the chronic disease management (CDM) care plan for chronic conditions. If eligible, you must visit your GP to formulate your plan and referral to us. This can provide you up to a maximum of five osteopathic treatments per year rebated by Medicare. For further enquiries please speak to your GP.

  • Workers’ compensation patients will require their referral paperwork.
  • Comcare patients will require your case number and letter of referral.
