What will happen on my first visit?
When you arrive at My Sports Chiropractor Kingsgrove you will need to fill out some basic paper work before your appointment. It is a good idea to arrive 10 minutes early your appointment to complete this paper work.
Once you have completed the appropriate forms you will meet your therapist who will discuss with you the reason for your visit.
A thorough medical and health history check will then be undertaken.
This will be followed by a comprehensive examination in order to make the most accurate diagnosis.
Your first consultation may take anywhere between 40-45minutes.
It is important to understand that if we do not think that we can help you, or if our examination reveals any additional concerns, we will refer you appropriately and liaise with your GP on your behalf.

What should I bring to my first visit?
We recommend for all first time patient’s to our practice to bring the following:
- Previous X-rays, MRI’s, Ultrasounds or any relevant imaging that will be useful for your therapist.
- Comfortable clothing i.e gym or active wear. We recommend avoid wearing jeans to your first visit.
- Bring your private health insurance card if you have private health cover.
Will I get treated on my first visit?
Naturally If you are in pain then you will want to start treatment. In most cases, it is safe and appropriate to start treatment on your first visit.
Rarely, the situation calls for an X-ray, or an MRI scan, or blood tests first. However we will explain all of this to you and will only order these tests if they are truly necessary.
Our chiropractor is very experienced and will do everything they can to help you as quickly as possible and provide you with an accurate diagnosis in order to provide the best management for your injury.
Can I claim on my private health insurance or Medicare?
We accept all private health funds. We have a HICAPS terminal on our premises making claiming convenient and easy. All you need to do is bring your private health insurance card and pay the remaining difference (if any).
If you have been referred by your GP under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan then you are able to claim a portion of your appointment fees from Medicare (up to a maximum of 5 visits per year). You will need to speak with your GP about the appropriate referral.
Do I need a referral from my GP or specialist?
Many patients are initially referred by their GP, however a referral is not essential. My Sports Chiropractor Kingsgrove is always available to collaborate with your medical team (if appropriate) to ensure that you get the best care possible.
