What Our Patients Say


I have been seeing Michael for a few months now and Michael is great! He is very caring, helpful and professional. I originally went to see him after hurting my back picking up my daughter and was in agony. He got me back on track in a few days and now I see him monthly for maintenance. I love how my back and neck feels after seeing Michael. He is great!

Liz Ritchie

Always happy here, doesn’t matter if I’m there for my back my knee or my shoulder, I always walk out feeling much better, I tried other places but when I found Michael I walked out instantly feeling better. Been going there on and off for at least 15 years. Definitely the best in Penrith, and worth travelling to even if you’re not in the area!!!

Brendon Leyshon

I have been treated by Michael for a few months now, originally for a back condition that I had been struggling with for a number of months, after the first treatment I felt considerable improvement. Michael is very professional and committed to improving your well-being.

Chris Vineburg

Michael is extremely knowledgeable and very professional, someone who genuinely cares about what you’re going through.

I’d had back pain for months and tried other Chiropractors that hadn’t given me any relief, Michael worked on my back finding the underlying cause giving me continuous relief allowing me to get back living my life. I highly recommend him, you won’t be disappointed.


I’ve been to many chiropractors over a few years for the same issue but have recently started with Michael. He is always friendly and very knowledgeable, improving years of back problems in just a few sessions and finally making a difference with day to day living.

I would highly recommend Michael and can’t thank him enough.
