In 2018 Michael was awarded Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to the chiropractic profession through leadership in education, accreditation and development programs.

At the age of 14 Travis had his first Chiropractic adjustment. On walking out of the clinic, he turned to his mother and exclaimed “I’m going to become a Chiropractor!”.
Travis completed his Bachelor of Science at Sydney University, majoring in Anatomy, in 1994. He then completed the two years Master of Chiropractic at Macquarie University in 1996. After six years of tertiary education Travis decided to locum around Australia and was lucky enough to work everywhere from Perth to Adelaide, Sydney to Ballina, Armidale to Singleton.
In early 1998 Travis and his wife moved to England “for a few years”. Thirteen years later they returned, this time with their own “little Pom”. During his time in England, Travis worked at “Christchurch Chiropractic Clinic” in Dorset for 12 years. If you detect a slight English twang to his accent, this is the reason why.
On their return to Australia in 2011, Travis resumed locuming as a Chiropractor. So, it came to be that in mid-2011 Travis started at “Adjust for Health” to help out “for a few days”.
He loves the clinic, patients and staff so much that he has never left. Travis loves helping his patients, Arsenal Football Club, bad jokes, good coffee and the guitar.
