Quinn Turner – Physiotherapist
Quinn was born & raised in Calgary but fell in love with the coast during a climbing trip out west. He was a Nordic skier as soon as he could walk and was dragged in a pulk through mountain trails prior to that. His passion for physiotherapy began with an odd injury sustained in grade school gym class that landed him in the hands of the rehabilitation team. Over a long recovery, he was coached through the ups and downs by a physiotherapist. Immediately he knew this was the career for him.
Quinn began his studies at the University of Calgary obtaining his BSc in Kinesiology with distinction before being accepted to the MScPT program at the University of Alberta. As he progressed through the program, Quinn developed a keen interest in low back pain & vestibular rehabilitation. He has since completed all 3 levels of the McGill Method for low back pain, his Advanced Vestibular Rehabilitation levels, & his Shift Level 1 Concussion Rehabilitation.
Outside of work, Quinn is an avid outdoor enthusiast. Throughout the seasons he partakes in rock, alpine, and ice climbing alongside mountaineering, backcountry ski touring, mountain biking, and Nordic skiing. His experience within these broad disciplines grants him an excellent perspective into injury prevention, management, and high-level performance. He strives to provide an individually tailored approach to each treatment. Quinn offers a thorough assessment and an evidence-based, active solution to return patients to doing the things they love. To consolidate his knowledge and make educational information accessible to patients, he has an Instagram account to summarize physiotherapy literature (@alpine.physio). Check it out!
