Essential Chiropractic Care – Stage 4 Restrictions



6th August – 13th September 2020

Chiropractic has been deemed an essential service during the Victorian Stage 4 restrictions. Back In Line Chiropractic is permitted to remain open during this period for Chiropractic care only.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have imposed conditions under which Chiropractic practices can remain open. At the moment, Chiropractors can provide services in order to prevent a significant change or deterioration in the patient’s functional independence, necessitating escalation of care.

Based on guidelines given to us by the Australian Chiropractors Association, we can provide care to you if:

(a) An absence or delay in your care may result in you needing to consult your GP, a specialist or another healthcare practitioner,

(b) A delay in your care may lead to you ending up in hospital or in the emergency department,

(c) There is likely to be a significant deterioration in your physical or mental health should you not receive care till after 13th September 2020. This may apply to an acute injury or chronic flare up and would need to be moderate to severe in nature.

Both you, as the patient, and your Chiropractor have a role to play in determining if you are eligible to access Chiropractic care. All patients will be screened using an online questionnaire for assessing eligibility for care prior to attending a face-to-face appointment. Feel free to complete this if you require your Chiropractor to contact you.

The practice is functioning at substantially reduced hours and capacity and should you fit into any of the above categories, please contact your Chiropractor directly.

Dr Roy Smith – 0404 027 266

Dr Liz Lelliott – 0400 055 114

Dr Dave Korchok – 0414 224 019
