I will also discuss any consultation fees with a health practitioner or staff member at this clinic prior to the service being provided.

    3) I have disclosed any past or current illness, surgery, previous trauma, medications, drug use and any known health risks in the forms and questionnaires provided, and agree to provide any related new information during the period of care at this clinic or by practitioners who have assessed or treated me at this clinic.

    4) Information gained from the initial assessment and follow up sessions may be used for internal research purposes or publishable research to help establish improved assessment and treatment protocols and promote a greater understanding of this field of healthcare in the scientific community. No personal details (name, contact details etc.) will be disclosed in any published material.

    Risks of Care & Consent for Care:

    5) Chiropractic and other techniques used at this clinic are well recognized as being extremely safe health care interventions for people of all ages. However, as with all health care disciplines there is a risk of complications. This may include, but are not limited to: soreness; muscle, bone or joint injury; worsening of symptoms; intervertebral disc injuries; nerve injuries; dizziness / light headedness; nausea; vision, hearing or balance problems; stroke (estimated at less than 1 per million); or side-effects caused by the use of nutritional or herbal products that may be recommended. If I have any concerns I will discuss them prior to treatment or during the course of a treatment program if any new concerns arise.

    6) I understand that the abovementioned risks of treatment exist. However, I do not expect the practitioner to be able to anticipate all potential risks and complications associated with the proposed care.

    7) I hereby acknowledge my consent to undergo assessments – which may require photographic or video recording as part of my records – and treatment at this clinic. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for my present complaint, and for any other future complaint(s) for which I may seek treatment. I understand that I may withdraw my consent at anytime without compromising my care in any way.

    By signing below, I acknowledge that I have carefully read all of the above information and that I understand and agree to each point that is made.
