Dr Michael Crane studied Chiropractic at RMIT in Melbourne. After completing the five-year, full time double degree course in 1996, he began practicing full-time as a Chiropractor in the inner eastern suburb of Hawthorn.

It was during these university years that Michael explored the various practice styles within the Chiropractic profession; some orthodox, some unorthodox.  Michael prides himself on offering a clinically effective but time and cost-effective service. His attitude to his patients and practice experience, allows this to happen. He feels it’s important to be kind and respectful to every patient.

The consultations he provides are longer, individualized and specific to the needs and wishes of his patients. Michael treats a broad range of people such as school age children to those in their senior years, pregnant women and athletes.

In 1999, he furthered his education, completing postgraduate studies in Sports Chiropractic. This has enabled him to deal with a broader range of injuries.

Athletes from a wide variety of disciplines and levels have become patients of Michael and regularly see him to help with their sporting health. Michael has built a successful practice providing quality care for his patients and continues to enjoy working life as a chiropractor.

In late 2019, Michael relocated his clinic from Hawthorn to Deepdene, to consolidate his practice with his growing furniture business.

Personal Life

On a personal level, Michael is a health and fitness fanatic himself, and has participated in a wide range of sports and recreational pursuits over the years. Part of the success in these sports has been attributed to having regular Chiropractic care.

Michael loves his Aussie Rules football and is a passionate Richmond fan. Michael was born in Melbourne and grew up in the eastern suburbs. He is married to Michelle who is also a Chiropractor in Lower plenty. They have four children who ironically barrack for Richmond too!
