Dr. Ken Bergquist earned 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, and having first certified in ergonomics in 1991, 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. Oobliq’s experience spans multiple industries and jurisdictions across Canada and the United States.

 Dr. Ken Bergquist’s speaking series delivers serval evidence-based transferable tools, helping employees engage in taking control of their future health and abilities in the workplace. All of Oobliq’s presentations are informed by regular research updates from our resident Neuroscientist, Dr. Austin Bergquist PhD. Ken has presented portions of his speaking series at companies and organizations like: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA-Oregon), Weyerhaeuser (Canada and Pacific Northwest), Governor’s Industrial Safety & Health (Washington), Norpac, Sobeys, Myshak Group, Genentech. 

 Additional to his role as President of Oobliq, Ken also practices in clinic several days a week at Whitemud Crossing Chiropractors in Edmonton Canada.
