If you have a Medicare card and a chronic muskulo-sleletal issue lasting more than 6 months, you will most likely be eligible for a Care Plan (also called an EPC) from your GP.

Alice is both a Chiropractor and one of the tools that assists her to discover how to help you most effectively is Applied Kinesiology.
Alice had also studied regular kinesiology (Touch For Health), however Applied Kinesiology is a field of study only available to those with a degree in Applied science, majoring in Anatomy and Physiology. This allows Alice the ability to assess complex neurological and biochemical problems with the highest level of scientific understanding. Alice is certified to the highest level in Applied Kinesiology. She is always studying and bringing the latest research into the practice to help her patients.
Alice will take your history and (with your clothes on), assess almost 100 of the muscles that are involved with standing, walking and sitting. She will determine how to be most helpful to you, and you will gain understanding about the way your nervous system co-ordinates your muscles and how physiological problems can manifest as musckulo-skeletal problems.
You can decide if Alice is the right practitioner for you and she can determine if she is the right practitioner for you. If not she will refer you to the best person for your condition.
