About the Doctor

Dr. NgDr. Derek Ng, B.A., B.Sc., D.C.
Markham Chiropractor

Dr. Ng embraces the body’s ability to heal itself, living by the approach to prevent problems from occurring rather than allowing a problem to take place and then fixing it. This was what led Dr. Ng to pursue a career in chiropractic.

Upon completion of his doctorate degree, Dr. Ng served as the clinic director at Chiropractic of Wildwood (Missouri, USA). He helped launch this new practice into one of the busiest practices in the area. It was in 2013 when Dr. Ng decided to move home for the cold winters and to be closer to family.

Education
Dr. Ng pursued his formal chiropractic education at the prestigious Logan College of Chiropractic (Chesterfield, MO), graduating in 2009. In addition to his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Dr. Ng is also a proud graduate of York University (Toronto, Ontario) with a Bachelors degree (Specialized Honors) in Kinesiology & Health Sciences (2004) as well as Bachelors degree in Human Biology from Logan University (2006).

Following extensive post-graduate courses, Dr. Ng is board certified in acupuncture with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.  Dr. Ng has earned Fellowship status with Acupuncture Society of America and was fortunate enough to have studied under the world-renowned Dr. Richard Yennie, one of the pioneers responsible for introducing acupuncture to North America.

TomoTomo OnoB.Sc., MPT, RPT
Markham Registered Physiotherapist

Tomo’s experience with physiotherapy started as a competitive junior tennis player on the OTA (Ontario Tennis Association) tennis circuit. On a competitive level, Tomo has personally endured various injuries related to sports. It was these experiences that taught him the importance of staying healthy and directed his interest in the field of rehabilitation. Tomo believes that injuries are preventable and if they ever arise, they should be manageable by the patient. This is largely consistent with the McKenzie method (MDT) of assessment and treatment.

Tomo received his Masters in Physiotherapy from The University of Western Ontario where he also competed as a varsity athlete, earning MVP in 2013 along with two OUA (Ontario University Athletics) titles.  He also has interests in manual therapy and acupuncture, which he plans to pursue in the near future.

Outside of the office, Tomo can be found on the tennis courts teaching kids and adults of various levels as a certified tennis instructor. He believes this is another way to help promote physical activity and wellness in the community.
