Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) pending, MClinChiro, BASc(CompMed), BASc(Biotech and BiomedSc)

Dr Firas Hasan has completed 9 years of university education at the prestigious Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne Australia. He is also currently completing a medical degree that will qualify him as a Medical Doctor so that he can incorporate his knowledge of less invasive strategies to combat patient pain in mainstream medicine.

Dr Firas brings with him almost a decade of clinical experience as a Chiropractor spanning different states of Australia treating patients from children through to the elderly, everyday mums and dads, working professionals, farming communities to elite athletes.

After practicing on the Gold Coast looking after the local community, Dr Firas decided to provide his services to outback Western Australia. He gained valuable experience in rural locations very early on in his Chiropractic career and was able to draw on his skills in injury management and rehabilitation becoming highly experienced in ultrasound therapy, soft tissue and taping. Dr Firas was once again drawn back to Queensland and began his first practice in rural Gympie, which he went on to become one of the busiest practices in the region. Dr Firas serviced local farmers, families, children and the elderly and was fortunate to come across some very rare and complicated cases. It was here that Dr Firas gained his passion for wellness care and undertook further training in Chiropractic Biophysics in his pursuit to provide exceptional Chiropractic care to his patients.

To gain further experience Dr Firas opened his next practice in Gladstone a mining town in QLD. He gained invaluable experience in treating acute spinal injuries, repetitive strain injuries and lower back pain that were common among the mining workers. Gladstone at the time was very under serviced by medical professionals, which meant that Dr Firas was consulted by patients for various medical queries further expanding his knowledge in general medicine. This then went on to spark his passion and interest for general medicine which is when he commenced studying his medical degree.

Dr Firas went on to open his third practice in South Australia and it was here that he advanced his training in low force techniques and became certified in the Activator Technique. As Melbourne has always been home, and after having two children, Dr Firas and his family finally decided to return to Melbourne and opened Mooroolbark Chiropractic Centre. Dr Firas is honoured to be servicing the south eastern suburbs by being able to provide highly experienced care with a vast amount of techniques to tailor individualised care to his patients. Dr Firas is looking forward to combining his medical knowledge and Chiropractic experience and training to fulfil his goal of providing exceptional Chiropractic care to all his patients.

Dr Firas attends numerous seminars annually to further his knowledge in Chiropractic so that he can give his patients the most up to date treatment in Chiropractic. He has completed certification as a Sympathetic Dominance Protocol practitioner and completed the Atlas Orthogonal certification through AO Australia and is listed as an Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor. He also serves as a member of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association and the Australian Spinal Research Foundation providing a valued contribution to ongoing spinal research.
As part of his medical training he attended the Tupua Tamasese Meaole hospital, a teaching hospital located in Samoa’s capital Apia where he gained a rich experience in various medical treatments and surgeries for the underprivileged. He was honored and privileged to provide Chiropractic care to the head of surgery in Apia as well as the Samoan bodybuilding team.

Dr Firas also enjoys teaching and is a clinician for RMIT University’s M-PIL Mentor Program and is responsible for training and assessing final year Chiropractic students on clinical skills, diagnosis, technique and patient management. He is devoted to providing his patients with a thorough assessment & diagnoses with the most advanced & effective treatment as possible drawing from his many years of experience and unique clinical exposure.
