Dr. Clinton Garda is originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
At twelve years old, his father, John, was bedridden with terrible back pain that had him bedridden for six weeks.
Dr. Garda tells it best:
"So, Dad's in bed and I'm old enough to know. First - Dad's really hurt. Second I knew we hadn't paid the motgage that month. Three, I don't think we had been to the grocery store in almost 2 weeks. This was a real problem. Then his foreman comes over to check on Dad and he tells him - John, if you can't get back on the jobsite we gottta let you go, you gotta go see MY Doctor.
