Michael is the lead practitioner at Deepdene. He studied Chiropractic at RMIT in Melbourne, and graduated from this 5-year double degree in 1996.

After completing his education, Michael immediately began practising as a chiropractor in the inner eastern suburb of Hawthorn.

As a dedicated health care professional, Dr. Crane prides himself on offering a clinically effective, time and cost-effective service. Michael also believes in being kind and respectful to everyone. This approach has been his driver for success, and is the reason he has accrued a significant long term, and loyal patient base.

In 1999, Michael completed postgraduate studies in Sports Chiropractic. This has enabled him to successfully deal with a broader range of injuries from a variety of sporting codes.

In late 2019, after 23 years of practising as a chiropractor in Hawthorn, he relocated to the current Deepdene clinic.

The Deepdene clinic is also the location of Furniture For Backs, which Michael is the founder and director of. Furniture For Backs retails back related furniture such as mattresses, pillows, computer chairs and standing desks. The company was established due to Michael’s passion for ergonomics, and has grown exponentially in recent years. This is due to the genuine need within the community for quality ergonomic furniture from a health related perspective.

Personal Life

Michael is a health and fitness fanatic, participating in a wide range of sports and recreational pursuits. Success in such sports is partly attributed to having regular Chiropractic care.

Born in Melbourne, and raised in the eastern suburbs, Mike loves his Aussie Rules football and is a passionate Richmond fan. He is married to Michelle who is also a Chiropractor in Lower plenty. They have four children who ironically barrack for Richmond too!

His personal interests include playing sports such as AFL, cricket and basketball. As such, Luca has a passion for assisting those who also partake in these sports as a result. To further advance his sports injury management knowledge, Luca is currently enrolled in an Exercise and Sports Science Diploma at Deakin University.

Luca is a dedicated practitioner who truly enjoys assisting his patients with achieving their health care goals. The nobility of making a positive impact to their lives, is what attracted him to being part of the healing arts.

For these reasons, Luca is quickly becoming the ‘go to’ Myotherapist in Deepdene, Balwyn, Kew East and Hawthorn.
