Gold Coast Headache and Migraine Clinic – Terms and Conditions
Consent to Treatment
By attending an appointment at our clinic, you acknowledge that you willingly give consent to our headache clinicians to perform any and all necessary examinations and treatment procedures in accordance with their professional training, qualifications and understanding of your injury. You understand that, during your treatment, different headache clinicians at Gold Coast Headache and Migraine Clinic may be involved in your care.
You understand that you have the opportunity to discuss the nature and purpose of your consultation, with your headache clinician, before any treatment is performed, and that you may opt out of treatment at any time.
You acknowledge and accept the following:
1.1 Your consultation involves physical treatment, which may include “hands on” treatment, among other treatment options.
1.2 You have the right to choose the headache clinician that you wish to see, refuse treatment, or seek a second opinion at any time.
1.3 There are risks associated with treatment, including stiffness and soreness, soft tissue injury, neurological complications, cerebrovascular injuries, skin irritations, burns and other minor complications.
1.4 The chance of risk is lowered by a thorough assessment of your condition, and we take every precaution to minimise risk.
1.5 In many cases, other treatment options exist. If your condition is not musculoskeletal in nature, or the risk of your treatment is considered to be too high, your headache clinician may refer you on to other forms of care if they believe your condition is outside of their scope of practice.
1.6 There may be risk of remaining untreated. Remaining untreated can result in formation of adhesions, scar tissue and other degenerative changes. These changes can increase pain, which can result in chronic pain cycles, and can result in losses in range of motion and function. Delay in treatment can lead to further complications.
