Dr Michael Powderly

Chiropractic Care

Master of Clinical Chiropractic

Michael’s Chiropractic interest was sparked by a family emergency which occurred when he was 10 years old. His Dad fell from a roof, seriously injuring his spine.

Michael combines 30 years of Chiropractic experience together with applied Kinesiology skills. This is complimented by extensive expertise in Sports Chiropractic and peak performance; supporting injured athletes, families as well as the occasional rock star back to peak spinal health, restoring the full range of daily activities. Through this approach to treatment, Michael supports a happier and more energised person, whether this is at school, at work, on stage or on the sporting field and especially in the home.
