Dr. Ken Bergquist obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto Canada in 1988. Since then, he and his wife Cheryl have established several successful chiropractic clinics throughout Alberta Canada, while raising their 5 children. Through his practice, Ken realised that many of his patients were attending his clinics as the result of soreness or injury sustained in the workplace. To address this issue, Ken established “Oobliq”, a company providing on-site injury prevention and health promotion programs. Since 1999, Oobliq has developed a powerful track-record of lowering injury rates, improving the experience of work for employees and providing value for employers in multiple industries and across multiple jurisdictions in Canada and the United States. Additional to his role as President of Oobliq, Ken also practices in clinic several days a week at Whitemud Crossing Chiropractors in Edmonton Canada.

He has taught courses at the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto in the areas of Motor Learning, Motor Control, and Human Physiology. His research, funded by the Alberta Paraplegic Foundation and Canadian Institutes of Health Research, has been published in impactful journals in his field, such as Clinical Neurophysiology and the Journal of Applied Physiology. Austin is also a Certified Exercise Physiologist through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. In 2019 both Austin and his wife Dana embarked on 5-year fellowships with Life Chiropractic College West, in Hayward California, to conduct health promotion research and receive Chiropractic training, with their 5-year old son “Winsloe” in tow.
