Frequently Asked Questions Road Sign

Perth chiropractors are often asked… ‘Do I need chiro or physio?’

Our Perth chiropractors and physiotherapists are registered allied health professionals and our clinic provides on the spot Hicaps claims for all participating health funds while also being a members choice preferred provider for Medibank and Bupa.

Do I need chiro or physio?

It is entirely a patients choice which health professional they require to help provide therapy for their condition. Our practitioners provide sports therapy in similar fashions although they differ in individual delivery of patient care, choice of treatment modalities and goal setting. A Perth WA chiropractor can adjust restricted joints that need to be given free movement again with manipulative therapy called adjustments. Physiotherapists provide excellent rehab, mobilisation and exercise programs for injuries but the choice is the patients.

What can I do to help myself?

Usually ice pack in the acute stages of injury for 20 minutes each hour over the painful area. Follow the exercises and home care recommendations given to you by your physio or chiro. Follow the treatment plan and the re-assessment recommendations given by your Perth chiropractor or physiotherapist to help keep you well once you are at that level.

How often do I need to see you?

Initially the treatment frequency is generally high and then gradually reduces over the first 2 weeks or so, by the end of the second week many patients drop down their treatment frequency to once or twice a month. Again it is dependent on the presenting condition, individual recovery times and severity of the condition we are treating.

Can i send my friend, partner, child to you?

Complete Care Chiropractic and Innaloo Physiotherapy and Massage Clinic welcome every patient and in particular referrals from our current patients. We like this for two reasons, first a referral is indicative that we have done a great job and that someone has been singing our praises to their friends and loved ones. Secondly, referrals by our current patients may receive a special discount at the clinic for the initial consult and treatment. It seems fair that we reward our patients for referring their close friends and relatives who who then may refer their close friends and relatives to our clinic. If you are a current patient and have a referral please ask one of our practitioners about a $5 discount off your referrals first treatment.
