Dr. Clark grew up in nearby Crystal Lake, Illinois, where his interest in sports medicine and orthopedics started. His undergraduate studies led him to study sports medicine at Carroll College. While there, he traveled with various sports teams. He ended up working for the Milwaukee Wave, a professional indoor soccer team. Dr. Clark knew that he wanted to continue his education. I didn’t want to go to medical school because I didn’t want to write prescriptions. He also didn’t see himself going to PT school because he didn’t want to be under the orders of another doctor.
