Clarence Holmes, Jr. joined the Sports Rehab team in September 2015. He is originally from Cleveland, MS and attended Mississippi State University and Delta State University for his undergraduate studies. He received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Mississippi Medical Center in May of 2014. Upon completion of the DPT, he was accepted into Mercer University’s Orthopedic Residency program in Atlanta, GA. He completed this in August 2015.
His primary clinical interests are in the general orthopedic population. From the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, his skills in manual therapy are well suited to achieve the desired outcome of return to sport or activity. He is also certified in trigger point dry needling and is an APTA credentialed clinical instructor.
Clarence has been a strong advocate for the physical therapy profession since he started physical therapy school in 2011. He served in various capacities, with the most notable being elected as the American Physical Therapy Association’s Student Assembly Treasurer and Vice President. His dedication to the profession is continued as he serves as one of the delegates for the state of Georgia to the APTA’s House of Delegates.
In his spare time, Clarence enjoys playing golf at various courses around town. As a relatively new native to the metro Atlanta area, he also enjoys spending time with his wife and two dogs, Rocket and Bailey, around town.
