Clarke is a manual osteopathic candidate, who is in his fourth and final year at the Canadian Academy of
Osteopathy (CAO). Throughout his osteopathic education, Clarke has studied in-depth about human anatomy,
physiology, biomechanics and manual techniques to synchronize and heal the body. He recognizes that every patient
is unique and treats each patient specific to their needs. Some of the issues he commonly treats include muscle and
joint pain, neck and back pain, nerve impingement, problems with the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems,
and other acute traumatic injuries. Clarke believes that the body is able to self-heal and self-regulate. However, in
order to do so, the body must be in alignment to allow proper functioning of the musculoskeletal and visceral
systems, blood flow, and lymphatics. By removing the anatomical root cause of the problem, the body is better able
to function properly.
Prior to studying at the CAO, Clarke received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Western University.
During his time at Western, he studied a variety of health-related topics including exercise physiology, anatomy,
athletic injuries, nutrition and biomechanics. Clarke also played many competitive sports growing up and
understands that taking care of your body requires commitment and a variety of modalities for peak performance –
he continues to train and play sports when he’s not treating his patients.
