TANNER CLARK, DC
Dr. Tanner Clark grew up an outdoor enthusiast on a small farm in southwest Montana. As a young man he spent most of his time in the Mountains where he learned an appreciation for the outdoors and physical activity. Growing up on a small farm Dr. Clark had the opportunity to buck bales, raise steers, tend horses and herd sheep. The foundation of hard work helped him to achieve future accolades in school and sports. Dr. Clark was a three sport athlete in high school and later became a Division 1 decathlete where he competed in 10 events in Track and Field at the collegiate level. At age 19 Dr. Clark served a mission for his church in Buenos Aires Argentina. Over his two year journey Dr. Clark became fluent in Spanish and learned an appreciation for different cultures. After returning home he continued to study Pre-med and Exercise Science and was intrigued with the complexity of the human body.
Dr. Clark was first introduced to chiropractic in High School after a bad car accident that left him with severe whiplash and pain. Through chiropractic care and physician recommended exercise he was able to return to sports, the outdoors and spending time with family pain free. The positive experience influenced him to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa after graduating from the University with a degree in Exercise Science: Health and Human Movement.
After graduating with a Doctorate of Chiropractic Dr. Clark began practicing in medically integrated clinics working along side medical providers to properly diagnose and treat patients without narcotics. Dr. Clark loves treating patients and helping them to achieve their health goals through clean healthy living and holistic practices. When asked about why he chose to practice different than most chiropractors he said, “In a multidisciplinary practice we not only find the root cause of the patient’s problem but adjust, strengthen, stabilize and change the acute and chronic structural dysfunctions that lead to pain and discomfort.” He later went on to describe the importance of providing patients with options other than surgery and narcotics to alleviate pain.
