The word “chiropractic” comes from the ancient Greek and means “done by hand”. It is the manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. It helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body. Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling, and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.
If you suffer from back or neck pain, headaches, whiplash, strains and strains from daily activities, repetitive strain injuries, arthritis or restricted movement in the back, shoulders, neck or limbs; chiropractic care may be able to help you to enjoy your everyday activities again.
Residents of the Rockland area can now have their treatment done with the Ultra-Align G2 computerized adjusting machine at the Rockland Clinic. This highly effective and gentle technique allows the doctor to treat and assess your spine without any twisting, compression or sudden thrusts which some people are uncomfortable with. It is appropriate for all ages and can also be used to treat such conditions as tennis elbow, frozen shoulder and plantar fasciitis as well as back and neck problems.
This is the most advanced technology available in chiropractic and the Rockland and Beacon Hill offices are the only offices in the east Ottawa and Clarence-Rockland regions equipped with them. Cost is the same as regular chiropractic care. The Beacon Hill office has 3 experienced chiropractors available; Dr. Sylvie Bordeleau, Dr. Trisha Grant and Dr. Daniel Vandervoort. The Rockland office has Dr. Daniel Vandervoort as the only chiropractor having experience with this unit.

Custom Foot Orthotics
Prescription orthotics resembles insoles but are biomechanical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole but have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
Orthotics may help prevent and treat localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch or heel pain, leg or knee pain and hip or back pain.
We also have available The Orthotic Group Gaitscan at our sister office, The Beacon Hill Chiropractic Clinic. The Gaitscan is a state of the art computer hardware and software that helps in the assessment and analysis of your feet. This system records your timing sequence during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate which has thousands of tiny sensors. The computer displays 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot and prints a report which helps us in the assessment of your feet and biomechanics.
We offer a variety of orthotics to fit your lifestyle from casual to specific sport orthotics.
