Dr. Michelle Clarke studied for 3 years at The University of Melbourne, completing her Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Physiology and Biochemistry, and 5 years at RMIT University, completing her Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science)/Bachelor of Chiropractic Science double degree. She has completed a certificate in Paediatric Chiropractic.
Michelle grew up in country Victoria in Gippsland. After finishing high school, achieving dux of her year, she moved to Melbourne to study Science at The University of Melbourne. During this time she developed severe shoulder pain, to which her quality of life was greatly affected. After a friend suggested she see a chiropractor, Michelle saw such drastic results with chiropractic care that upon completing her science degree she changed her course of study to Chiropractic at RMIT in Bundoora.
In her second year of study, Michelle discovered Gonstead chiropractic. She was drawn by the precision and passion of Gonstead chiropractors and spent many hours outside of her studies observing and learning from Gonstead mentors and attending Gonstead seminars all over Australia.
Michelle graduated from RMIT with Distinction in 2005 and has worked as a chiropractor in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs for over 10 years.
Michelle has a particular interest in children’s health and providing care to women during and after pregnancy. She especially enjoys helping patients with headaches and migraines, lower back pain, shoulder pain and TMJ (jaw) related problems. Michelle has a very strong philosophy toward natural health and in her spare time likes experimenting with healthy recipes for her daughter and husband. Michelle volunteers for the Chiropractic Association of Australia and enjoys keeping fit, family time, a good coffee and trashy TV.
After working in the Eastern Melbourne suburbs, seeing a lot of patients who were farmers, nurses and tradies, I have a strong appreciation for providing care for people to get their health back on track promptly.
After having my daughter I obtained a first-hand understanding of the pressure our bodies and spines go through during pregnancy and birth and how different chiropractic care needs to be during this time.
