Our Practitoners

Dr Michael Crane


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.
