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, from servicing farming communities to elite athletes and everyday mums and dads.
After practicing on the Gold Coast looking after the local community, Dr Firas decided to provide Chiropractic services in outback Western Australia. He gained valuable experience in rural practice very early on in his Chiropractic career and was able to draw on and practice his skills in injury management and rehabilitation and 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 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 mining town Gladstone. 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 with medical professionals, which meant that Dr Firas was consulted by patients for various medical queries further expanding his knowledge in general medicine. This then sparked a passion and interest for general medicine at which Dr Firas’ 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 back 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 fulfill his goal of providing exceptional Chiropractic care.
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 recently 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.
Dr Firas 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 also contributes to the community by offering his time and expertise undertaking numerous Corporate Spinal Health Checks for local businesses.
