Meet Dr. Turnbull

IMG_2618Dr. Todd Turnbull, DC, is a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, author, speaker and leading expert in concussions and soft tissue (muscle) evaluation and correction.

He is a non-traditional chiropractor that focuses on correcting muscle dysfunction without the snap-crack-pop techniques.  He promotes maximizing flexibility, correcting muscle dysfunction and prescribing proprietary rehab protocols to restore muscle elasticity and reduce joint crepitus (grinding noise).


Founder of PreActive Stretching.


Since graduating from Life University School of Chiropractic in 1991, Dr Turnbull has maintained a sports practice focused on helping elite athletes unleash their full potential.

As a competitive athlete, Dr. T understands athletic injuries and the desire to return to play as soon as possible.  He has worked with collegiate, Olympic, professional and world class athletes in football, crew, track, skiing/snowboarding, power-lifting and martial arts/boxing.

Dr Turnbull is on the post graduate faculty for several universities and conducts continuing education seminars for health care professionals lecturing on Concussions, Disc Herniations, Rehabilitation and Soft Tissue (muscle) Diagnosis.

Dr. T has spent his chiropractic career developing and refining treatment protocols that identify and correct neuro-muscular dysfunction quickly, and stretching techniques to maximize athletic performance. This has led to the creation of PreActive Stretching (SM) and Myotonic Facilitation Technique.

In 2016, Dr. T developed the Visual Error Scoring System for evaluating traumatic brain injuries.

In 2017, The Integrative Medicine Journal published an article titled, “Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis: Alternatives to Surgery: A case report” which Dr. Turnbull co-authored.

Dr Turnbull is also an active member of the community as a snowboard coach, martial arts/yoga teacher and an athlete.
