Physiotherapist Shaun Turner
My name is Shaun Turner and I just recently moved here with my wife and two kids from Lethbridge. I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy in 2015 and also hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science from the University of Lethbridge. Prior to studying physical therapy I worked as a Kinesiologist doing exercise therapy for individuals suffering from either acute injury or a motor vehicle accident. As a result of my past experience, exercise therapy has become the foundation of my approach to treatment because of the importance of movement for the human body and how each body part influences another, but my approach is not exclusive to only this. Depending on a person’s needs I will often include a combination of treatment techniques such as manual therapy, exercise therapy, taping, and various modalities (hot and cold therapy, IFC, ultrasound). I am currently working on becoming certified to perform dry needling and I am increasing my knowledge in the area of vestibular dysfunction. Continuing education is something I greatly value. Some common injuries and areas of the body that I work with include, but are not limited to the following: acute sport injuries, foot and ankle pain, knee pain, ACL and meniscus tears and repairs, knee replacement, hip pain, hip replacement, sciatica, lower back pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, upper back pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, neck pain, whiplash, rotator cuff tears and repairs, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
I would love to meet you and work with you on decreasing your pain and improving your function so you can get back to doing what you love.
