Dr. Nathan Clem
Dr. Clem is who we call our Chief Wellness Officer. He goes by Dr. Clem, Dr. C, Dr. Nate and the kiddos in our office have many other names. He has been a licensed Chiropractor since 2004. He truly lives and promotes a healthy lifestyle, which includes Chiropractic care, moving well (running, basketball, football, core training, yoga), eating well (superfoods) and thinking well (meditation, expressing gratitude).
Originally, from Burlington, Iowa, Dr. Clem moved to Seattle in the Spring of 2004. A member of a chiropractic family, he received his first chiropractic adjustment when he was two days old. He then grew up hearing, “its time for your attitude adjustment” and off to the chiropractor he went. Having grown up around natural healthcare, he both experienced the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle and witnessed the adverse affects of unhealthy habits. Dr. C believes “we have an innate ability to heal ourselves and to be healthy.”
He graduated from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA, with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology, where he also played football. Go Knights! He then entered Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of Chiropractic, graduating in
February of 2004. While at Palmer he volunteered at the local patient outreach clinic that provides free chiropractic and healthcare services to low-income families; participated in a service abroad program setting up healthcare clinics in Fiji; and completed a one-year internship in the pediatric unit of the university clinic.
Dr. Clem is passionate about providing care to the entire family and is a Certified Pediatric Chiropractor. Treating children and families as a whole is paramount, as healthy habits are learned in the home. He believes that we can assist families in developing healthy habits and thus set the groundwork for generations to come. Dedicating his time to the community as a basketball and football coach allows Dr. Clem the opportunity to share his enthusiasm for keeping kids active, while teaching them the importance of a healthy lifestyle. These ideals set the vision for Discovery Wellness Center’s mission; educate the community on the wonders of Chiropractic care and liberate you from the sick care model we are surrounded by to experience your body’s full expression of health and intelligence on a daily basis.
Dr. Clem uses a "whole person approach" when taking care of his patients. By combining the very best hand’s-on technique, state-of-the-art physiotherapy procedures, and providing the newest and best natural vitamin and mineral supplements, Dr. Clem is able to help his clients accelerate their journey to good health
