Our mission is to provide ethical and high quality chiropractic care to the people of our community in order to help them achieve optimal health and well-being and live an active and pain free life.

BodyWorks Chiropractic
At Body Works Chiropractic we pride ourselves on our very high standard of patient care. This starts from the moment you walk into our office and are greeted by our friendly smiles, right through to your appointment where we pride ourselves on educating you about your condition, how we can help, as well as how you can help yourself.

Our unique and effective practice methods combine traditional chiropractic adjusting techniques (to restore proper motion and function to joints) with trigger point therapy (to reduce associated muscle spasms), and stretching techniques (to restore proper function to surrounding tendons and ligaments). When necessary, we include other therapeutic modalities such as heat therapy, ultrasound, and electric stimulation. X-rays are not always required, however, when indicated, we refer you to a local radiologist. In addition, we teach you stretches and exercises that you can perform at home to assist you in your healing and help prevent future problems.

However, our concern goes well beyond the treatment of your symptoms. We are dedicated to finding the cause of your symptoms. Once we determine the underlying cause, we teach you the necessary changes that need to be made in order to prevent the same problem from returning in the future.

Although we arrived to Potsdam in 2010, we have been in practice since 2004, and we have experienced success in treating a wide range of conditions in many patients over the years. We are very proud of the fact that the majority of these patients came to us following a recommendation from family, friends or another healthcare provider.



Dr. Stephane Roy graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas Chiropractic College, in 2003. While in school, “Dr. Stephane” worked part-time alongside world renowned researchers in the research department, where he conducted research studies and co-authored research articles that appeared in peer-reviewed research journals.

In addition to gaining practical hands on experience in both the student and outpatient clinic, he had the opportunity to participate in TCC’s externship program where he was able to work alongside general medical practitioners and pain management specialists. Through his participation in this program, Dr. Stephane developed a strong grasp of his unique role within the healthcare spectrum. He learned first hand which conditions benefit greatly from chiropractic care, as well as when it is necessary to refer out to the proper medical practitioner. He witnessed corticosteroid injections, spinal surgeries, and follow-up visits to pain management specialists where he saw patients living numbly and out of touch with reality on numerous pain killing prescription medications. Although these treatments are necessary in many cases, Dr. Stephane is dedicated to helping as many people as possible avoid these invasive procedures by giving chiropractic care a try first.

Dr. Stephane was born in the outskirts of Montreal, Quebec, Canada in a small town called Les Cedres. He attended Marianopolis College and Concordia University in Montreal, where he worked on his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science. When he made the decision to further his studies and become a chiropractor, he moved to Georgia where he began his chiropractic program at Life University Chiropractic College. He has always been and continues to be dedicated to learning as much as possible, in order to be able to best help his patients in their quest for health and wellness. This is what drove Dr. Stephane to learn a wide variety of chiropractic adjusting techniques as well as to receive additional training to become a certified neuromuscular therapist (NMT), which has enabled him to treat a wider array of conditions with greater levels of success than he could have been obtained with chiropractic alone.

After almost a decade of practice, Dr. Stephane finally achieved his mission of obtaining a home office in a small town similar to the one in which he grew up. He chose Potsdam in order to be closer to his family in Canada, and to be close to the Adironack Park to satisfy his love and passion for the outdoors. He is totally committed to serving the people of his community with excellent chiropractic care and gaining their trust in him, so that he can continue to help as many people as possible achieve their maximum heath potential.

Dr. Alison was born and raised in Northern New Jersey, in the suburbs of New York City. She has since lived in a number of states including South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, California and New York State.

Dr. Alison’s main role in their practice has always been acting as “office manager” as well as assisting “Dr. Stephane” in seeing their patients.

Whether you have insurance coverage or not, Dr. Alison will discuss with you the office policies and payment plans their office offers. She will always do her best in order to make sure everyone who needs care receives it.

For as long as she can remember, Dr. Alison has always had a passion for teaching. Since graduating from Chiropractic College, “Dr. Alison” has satisfied her love of teaching by educating her community about the benefits of chiropractic care. She has conducted numerous spinal screenings and health lectures on a wide variety of health related topics over the past decade*. In addition to private practice, she spent four years teaching chemistry at a private boarding high school in Cornwall on Hudson, NY and has been tutoring students of all ages in a wide variety of courses and levels over the past 15 years.
