Action Potential - What's Your Potential?

Our Clinic

Our Clinic

Our clinic saw it’s first patient in August 2006. We had one practitioner and only two rooms in the upstairs of an old house.  Since then we have changed locations twice and finally settled into our current location.  We now boast a multidisciplinary team of chiropractors, rehab specialists, registered massage therapists, and acupuncture providers.  Each member brings their unique skills and experiences and offers a variety of services and techniques.  Together we have seen thousands of patients, young and young at heart.  We continue to learn and grow, with the purpose of offering you great care for you and your family.  We have grown to become a busy clinic, and over the years have sponsored or supported sports teams and community organizations.  Each of us looks forward to continuing to be an active member in Oxford County, both personally and with our practice, to serve its citizens the best we can.  Our chiropractic and rehabilitation clinic, offers a wide variety of services and products focused on your well being.  We offer chiropractic and physical rehabilitation, clinical acupuncture, soft tissue and stretching techniques, orthotics and bracing, taping and massage therapy.  Please do not hesitate to visit us at 695 Canterbury St. Woodstock, or call us at 519 421 3400.  We look forward to seeing you and asking “what’s your potential?”.

We are looking for a new Registered Massage Therapist to join us. If you know a therapist who would enjoy working with us at our location (perhaps it's you) please have them contact us. We would be happy to discuss the details then.
