"So giving without hesitation!"
"I have not met a practitioner that is so giving without hesitation in the whole 20 years that I have been here in Alberta! Thank you again, you are a blessing! Not to mention having more knowledge not just in chiropractic but everything around and involved in the overall health of a person and treating them more than just a number! Very glad we walked into your office that first day!
"There is no denying the relaxation he gets after an adjustment."
"Our son has a neurological disorder that results in high muscle tone, seizures, and reflux. We have been to many specialists who view him through a deficit model, picking him apart problem by problem. It has been wonderful to go to a Chiropractor, where Dr. Quinn sees the body as a whole and recognizes my son’s potential.
Our son is 6 months old and it's often hard for us to understand what is causing him discomfort. There is no denying the relaxation he gets after an adjustment. Karen is gentle and caring for him. Since regularly seeing a Chiropractor, our son doesn't arch his back or throw up as often and he sleeps better. After a seizure he can get so tight, we are thankful to have Dr. Karen to help him regain comfort."
"Throughout my interactions with the chiropractic community, there is no one I hold in higher regard than Karen Quinn.
Our personal philosophy, or lens in which we see the world through is often what guides our decisions. Karen stands out to me as an individual who has spent a lot of time crafting her lens. She is crystal clear on who it is she can help and the ways in which she can do so. I find this a refreshing breath to the alternative medicine world.
Karen's commitment to the vision of a wellness-based practice inspires me. Too often, I see the elimination of pain as the benchmark of success. Karen's practice takes this much further - she wants you to be doing that which you love, well into your nineties. Comfortably. And without medications. This is what I feel will be the future of alternative medicine."

“Gentle, respectful and holistic.”
"For many years I had been skeptical about chiropractic care. My lack of knowledge made me fear the idea of anyone “messing around” with my spine. During my second pregnancy, I began suffering from regular, mild to moderate headaches. This continued long after having my baby and I found myself taking pain medications more and more often. I began with seeing a massage therapist who, after making little progress with the tightness in my neck, referred me to Dr. Karen Quinn. Being the skeptic I was, I agreed to talk to her, with no intention to continue care with her. Dr. Quinn immediately made me feel comfortable and validated my fears. She educated me and assured me that if we began care, she would explain everything she did and only proceed with my consent. It has now been almost one year since that day and I have seen Dr. Quinn on a regular basis. I no longer have as much tightness in my neck and almost never get a headache. I thank Dr. Quinn, not only for her help in reducing my physical discomfort, but in her gentle, respectful and holistic approach to her practice."
“I am thankful.”
"I feel that Dr. Quinn is the main reason why my health is so good, why I have so few migraines and why I successfully carried my daughter to term.
I remember when I started care, I had about 15-20 migraines a month. My goal was to get back to work and have a baby.
Now I get 1 migraine a month (if that), have a job I love, and a baby who is the world to me - thanks to you. Not only have you changed the course of my life and my health for the better, but I felt you truly cared about me and my struggle with chronic pain.
I am thankful for the day we met, you were fated to change my life. I hope you know I can never repay you for what you did, you have been the biggest instigator of change in my life. My lack of pain has touched every single aspect of my world.
Thank you for taking me on as a patient and for being such a great doctor."
" I must specifically thank Dr. Karen for making it possible for me to give birth to our twin girls naturally instead of by caesarian. She used her expertise to allow Baby A to turn head down instead of breech. I will forever be indebted to you!"
"I've grow up going to Chiropractors my entire life and Karen is the first one who I felt completely comfortable treating my brand new baby along with my other 3 kids. Her technique is gentle yet highly effective with immediate results. She always makes us feel at ease and my kids love going to see her every month! Thanks Karen!"
“My life has been changed for the better”
I met Dr. Karen Quinn at a Lunch & Learn workshop. I always had a problem with balance and other problems with my shoulder and hip. When I went to the Lunch & Learn I discovered to my horror and surprise that I was thirty pounds heavier on one side. no wonder I had no balance and aches and pains.
I had gone to the doctor and was prescribed anti-inflammatories and although they would help, the pain would always return.
Since starting care with Dr. Quinn, I only had one episode with my shoulder and after less than a week it was better. I was surprised!
Since starting chiropractic care I have noticed my balance has improved. I actually participated in a yoga class and managed not to fall. My balance has always been an issue and I was afraid that it would worsen as I aged and feared I may fall and break a hip. I was terrified of falling down. Now I seem to be getting better.
I will certainly be mentioning my improvements to my friends."
"Prior to moving to Calgary in the summer of 2012, both my husband and I had been visiting a Chiropractor in Edmonton. While we were content with the results, we saw little improvement in our physical issues and were continually making appointments to ‘correct’ our symptoms. During this time our two children were not under Chiropractic care and there was never a request to assess them. I didn’t question this as I thought that chiropractors were mainly for adults issues.
Once we moved to Calgary I sought out to find a chiropractor to provide a continuation of the type of care we were receiving in Edmonton. From my first evaluation I knew things were going to be different- a good different. Time was spent scanning and ‘stress testing’ me until we had a clear picture of what my concerns were. I was surprised since I had never previously had these types of tests done in 15 years of previous chiropractic care. I felt I was an active participant in my care and felt significant changes from week to week. I quickly recruited my husband to my newfound source of reduced pain and increased wellbeing and since becoming a patient, he has the same great things to say.
A short time later, Dr. Karen inquired whether our children had been to the chiropractor in the past. I said no, and asked if it was normal to start chiropractic care so young. She explained to me the impact on the systems of the body and how subluxations can occur at any age. I admit, I was initially doubtful of the benefit, but after some thought and research we decided to book assessment appointments and have them join us under Dr. Karen’s care. I can remember from the very first appointment seeing how their individual life events were mirrored in their assessments. My oldest has had issues with allergies, frequent colds (especially going to his lungs), ear aches, and challenges with night time bedwetting. During his assessment Dr. Karen was able to note areas that corresponded to most of these concerns. Over the course of a few months I saw dramatic improvements in these areas, along with decreased duration and severity of colds and better sleep patterns. My younger child, who has seemed to have a stronger immune system and was a better sleeper, did not initially require an adjustment. We continued to bring her in for check-ups and it wasn’t until after a sled mishap that she required one. Our kids LOVE coming in to see Dr. Karen. She is kind and gentle and makes them feel comfortable. As a mother, I love the effect of what she does for them. I have seen our family’s immunity and recovery time to seasonal colds & flus improve and everyone seems to be functioning better. Dr. Karen has become a part of our health care and she encourages us to come in if we are feeling under the weather, so an adjustment can give our immune systems a boost.
Dr. Karen has become an integral part of our family’s wellness and I would highly recommend and encourage families to share in the benefits that are available. I truly believe Dr. Karen is an invaluable resource to parents in helping to raise healthy, happy children."
“ I didn’t realize how helpful Chiropractic care was until Karen took the time to help me understand. She has the compassion to hear my concerns fully and a wealth of knowledge to keep the bigger picture of my longterm health in mind. Her whole body approach has supported me to a healthier lifestyle, not just getting out of pain. She’s so approachable, genuine and present. I’m very grateful I found her!” - A.F.
“Dr. Quinn is extremely knowledgeable and caring. I love that she takes a holistic approach!”
