Our Team of Experts

As a Chiropractor, I believe that wellness should be a lifetime strategy;
with a focus on creating health, not managing disease.

Michael Powderly


Dr Michael is the newest member to join the team at This Is Life, bringing an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge to our practice. Michael has been practicing for over 30 years and brings an additional skillset in the form of Applied Kinesiology testing, along with a big passion for caring for athletes and active members of the community.

He has a particular interest in lower back complaints, spinal disc injury, migraine and headache management, chronic pain conditions, sports injury and performance care, along with wellness care and mental / emotional well-being.

Michael has had further training in Applied Kinesiology Chiropractic Care, NOT, NET and Sports and Family Chiropractic.

He practices a host of advanced and varied techniques: Manual Adjusting, Applied Kinesiology, NOT, NET, SOT, Activator, Taping and Dry Needling which allows him to tailor each adjustment to your needs on the day.

When he is not busy helping people to get well, stay well and live their best lives, Michael enjoys time with family, captaining his local (St Kilda) lifesaving club, volunteering as a sports Chiropractor at charity events and having adventures on kayaks, snowboards, mountain bikes and in the surf.
