About Us

Furniture for Backs was founded by Melbourne Chiropractor Dr Michael Crane in 2006.img-2437-edit.jpeg

The company specialises in recommending spinal related furniture items such as mattresses, pillows, computer chairs and standing desks to those with a health care complaint.

Furniture for Backs is built on the collaboration between DR MICHAEL CRANE, an experienced Chiropractor with specialised ergonomic knowledge, and other qualified musculoskeletal health care professionals from the Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Myotherapy and Rehabilitation fields.

Biomechanical conditions or complaints are common within the community. Whether the problem is a degenerative spinal disc, a post-surgical scenario (laminectomy & fusion or joint replacement) or a postural scoliosis, furniture selection is challenging.

Sufferers of such complaints require the specialised attention of a health care provider (not a sales person) when recommending a furniture product. Choosing an unsuitable product, by guessing, often leads to the exacerbation of a complaint or condition

We have a showroom that offers a range of furniture options to meet your sleeping and working needs.

All members of the Furniture for Backs organisation are highly trained health care consultants who can help you find the right furniture solution just for you.

The mission of Furniture for Backs is to prescribe SMART, SPECIFIC & SUPERIOR QUALITY furniture to suit the individual’s postural and spinal needs.

 

DR MICHAEL CRANE

Furniture for Backs is the result of a long-time devotion with caring for patients and searching for furniture more suitably designed for the human body, particularly the most important body part – the spine.

The passion came from Dr Michael Crane – a Melbourne based Chiropractor practicing in the inner eastern suburb of Hawthorn. Dr Crane grew frustrated at being unable to assist his patients with a furniture recommendation. The available furniture options in the market were either causing or exacerbating his patient’s health care problem. So, he decided to do something about it

Dr Crane initially invested hundreds of hours consulting a range of different people and organisations. Beginning with his own patients, health care providers, furniture manufacturers, furniture retailers, industrial designers etc. In addition to attending numerous courses and workshops regarding Ergonomic principles and furniture design.

All of this eventually led to a collaboration with other experts and healthcare professionals, a range of specially designed and manufactured furniture and Furniture for Backs.

Whilst operating Furniture for Backs, Dr Crane continues to practice part time at HAWTHORN CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC.

HOW WE WORK

To visit the Furniture for Backs showroom an appointment is required.fitting-2.jpg

There are no casual walk-ins like traditional furniture retailer’s showroom.

Simply call 1300 109 007 or email your request at sales@furnitureforbacks.com.au

Referral from a health care provider is not necessary, you may book directly with us.

Appointments are free.

We specialize in recommending furniture for those with a health care complaint, such as a “bad back”. However, we regularly attend to those whom are doing well and have no such health complaint and simply need a mattress or computer chair. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to make an appointment.

Your appointment is private, and you will have exclusive attention with Dr Mike Crane or one of his trained associates. Allow 30-45 mins for the consultation which allows for a detailed chat about your health history followed by the testing of some recommended products. If satisfied, you may order.

Whether a mattress, computer chair or sit-stand desk is on your list, Furniture for Backs will find a personalised solution for you.
