Born and raised in Goderich, Ontario, Paula Vanderburgh graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Ontario. Four years later, in 1998, she graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto with the highest academic standing in her graduating class, and the highest proficiency in her internship. Immediately following graduation, Paula worked as a Chiropractor in Ireland for three years, treating national athletes and patients of all ages and lifestyles. In addition to practicing abroad, respect for her knowledge and communication skills extended to the US where she was called upon to lecture for the Chiropractic Board Review Courses.

In 2001, Dr. Paula Vanderburgh moved to Ilderton and opened Acitve Chiropractic & Massage Therapy. She concurrently worked in Exeter at Bio-Connections until 2003 and was the team Chiropractor/ART® Provider for the University of Western Ontario’s Track & Field team from 2002-2007.

During her 20 years of practice Dr. Vanderburgh has undergone extensive training in Active Release Techniques ®.  She is certified in spine, upper and lower extremities, nerve entrapment, and biomechanics (running and golf).  Over this time period she had the privilege of working at two Ironman competitions with the ART® team.  In 2005 Dr. Vanderburgh became an Assistant Instructor for ART® and then a Group Instructor in 2015.

In addition to being a Chiropractor and an ART® practitioner, Dr. Vanderburgh also has her McMaster Medical Acupuncture certification. She is also well versed in gait analysis (including running gait analysis) and is qualified to fit and dispense custom orthotics.

In her free time she enjoys being a mom of two young boys, continuing her education and physical fitness.
