Osteopathic Clinic Information

Osteopathic Consultation Fees

We require payment on the day of your consultation.

Osteopathic Consultation Times

Initial Consultation: 60 minutes

Subsequent Consultation: 30 minutes

First-time visitors to the clinic, we allocate 60 Minutes for your Initial Consultation. This allows us to get to know you and your condition. It also allows us to provide you with the highest possible care, ensuring your health and safety.

Payment can be made via cash, EFTPOS, VISA, and MasterCard.

We value both your time and ours. As a courtesy to others who may be in pain and in need of help. Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you are unable to attend your consultation. This allows us to help others a little sooner.

Private Health Insurance and HICAPS

Equilibrium Sports and Spinal Clinic has a HICAPS facility onsite, which enables those with private health insurance to claim their rebate immediately at the clinic.

If you are unsure of your level of coverage, please check with your private health insurer.
