X-rays, if clinically indicated, are ordered to be taken at radiology centres, where they are covered by Medicare. As practicing chiropractors, we are also registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia, under Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).



About Chiropractors

Chiropractors in Australia are highly educated health care professionals. To be able to practice as a chiropractor, one must earn a five-year university degree in chiropractic. Four Australian Universities offer chiropractic degree programs. These are: RMIT University in Melbourne, Macquarie University in Sydney, Murdoch University in Perth, and Southern Queensland University. These courses of study are highly demanding and include extensive learning in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and other medical sciences, as well as Chiropractic Science and Radiology. Chiropractors in Victoria are then eligible to become registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia. Registered chiropractors are bound by a strict code of professional conduct. Registration requirements also include adequate public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
