As part of our commitment to be actively involved in the community, Dr. Derek Ng has donated two gift certificates for Chiropractic and/or Acupuncture services for Evelyn’s upcoming charity fundraising event for Operation Smile.

Chiropractic and Kids

Many parents  seeking chiropractic treatments at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab often ask Markham Chiropractor, Dr. Ng “Can my kids benefit from Chiropractic care?”  

The answer is “Yes!” 

See one of our 10 year-old patient, Lilian, explains how chiropractic can help you.

While a child’s problems may not be as severe as their parents’, children often have issues such as scoliosis, headaches and back pain which can be due to physical stresses at school (such as wearing heavy back packs, using the computer and/or using cell phones for texting).

To schedule a Chiropractic appointment for your kids, give our office a call 905-554-2118.

Posture + Chiropractic

The spine consists of three curves in the neck, mid back and low back. The vertebrae (bones of the spine) and discs (found between the bones) help form the curves in the spine and help play a role in maintaining our posture and keeping us upright.

When you start to lose the normal curves in the neck, mid back or low back, more pressure is placed on the nerves in that region. This  can then lead to problems such as headaches, neck pain, back pain and/or muscle stiffness.

These symptoms are typically seen in patients (who have postural issues) and if you notice any discomfort in the neck or back and would like to get that examined by Markham Chiropractor, Dr. Ng, give our office a call at 905-554-2118 to learn more about how chiropractic can help!

Headaches + Migraines

Headaches and migraines are common conditions seen by Markham Chiropractor, Dr. Ng.  Often times, these symptoms can be due to subluxations in the neck, putting pressure on the nerves and causing headaches.   Those experiencing headaches can benefit from chiropractic adjustment.  There are various types of headaches which include:

Tension headaches usually affect any gender or age but typically affects an individual who works on a computer throughout the day. These types of headaches start in the afternoon and is due to tightness, spasm or achiness with the muscles of the neck and head.

 Migraines usually causes discomfort on  one side or both sides of the head.  With migraines, an individual may become sensitive to light, have nausesa or throbbing sensations.

Cluster headaches are usually seasonal and can lead to symptoms such as runny nose, tearing eyes and piercing sesations.

If you are experiencing headaches and/or migraines and you would like to see if chiropractic can help, give our office a call at 905-554.2118.

Ankle Sprains

As summer is approaching, there will be more and more outdoor activities.  Running, beach volleyball and basketball are popular with weekend warriors and are also common causes of sprained ankles .

The most common ankle sprain we see at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab is when your foot turns inwards (aka inversion ankle sprain). This type of injury stretches the ankle ligaments (either the anterior talofibular ligament and/or calcaneofibular ligament) causing pain, swelling and gait imbalance.

It is important to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle, but sprained ankles will get in the way of you staying active.

Physiotherapy services at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab will help you focus on the path of a speedy recovery with active exercises, mobilization and passive therapies.  More importantly, addressing the ankle sprain quickly will make sure you heal properly and prevent future injuries.

For more information, feel free to call our office at 905-554-2118.

Happy summer!
