Dr Mike Crane

Hawthorn East Chiropractic Clinic

mike-with-spine-new-2.jpgMichael studied Chiropractic at RMIT in Melbourne and upon graduation in 1996 began practicing full-time as a Chiropractor in the inner eastern suburb of Hawthorn. In 2000, he furthered his education, completing postgraduate studies in Sports Chiropractic. This has enabled him to deal with a broader range of injuries. He has built a successful practice providing quality care for his patients and continues to consult part-time in Hawthorn.

As a community Chiropractor wanting to assist individuals suffering from injuries associated with the usage of poor furniture, Michael pursued further studies involving Ergonomics. His studies specifically focused on how furniture can be better designed to suit the human body. This specialist area of knowledge has been much sought after by the community at large. Michael is the founder of FURNITURE FOR BACKS, a nationally based online company that retails mattresses and computer chairs. The products prescribed and advice recommended over the years have successfully assisted many Australians.
