Chiropractors or osteopathic doctors

We will be travelling in Australia for most of November. I have a back/spinal issue and receive regular treatment from a chiropractor. Will I be able to find such treatment when travelling. Any suggestions would be helpful.

chiropractors and osteopaths are easy to find. yellow page stuff.

on the medical side u can visit gp's for medical purposes. make an appointment or some clinics accept walk ins.

to see a specialist u need a referral from a gp.

i hope u have organized some sort of travel insurance!

australia and canada dont have reciprocal health care agreements.

and a visa.....the latter is often forgotten.

we had a canadian band headlining one of our jazz festivals locally and one of the members turned up at the airport for his flight to aus and was refused boarding....no visa! they had to play saxless.
