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.

Jeffrey Man, B.Sc., CPT, RMT 
Markham Registered Massage Therapist

Jeffrey takes the effects of massage therapy to a wide range of conditions that he faces. He takes a rehabilitation approach to make sure each treatment in the treatment plan moves forward with the body’s recovery. In the past, he had been a patient with several conditions to many therapists and understands what a client faces as they receive treatment.

Jeffrey attended University of Waterloo for his undergrad in Kinesiology. Upon graduating, he progressed into getting certified as a personal trainer to take a more hands on approach with his knowledge. He then attended Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy (CCMH) for his massage therapy education and is now registered as an RMT under the CMTO.

Jeffrey now uses the combination of his knowledge about the human body and applies a hands-on approach using massage therapy to treat everyday conditions people face. He specializes with, but not limited to, trigger point therapy, deep tissue, and peripheral neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) to help restore the body’s function to move. He believes that pain should be temporary, and each person should live a pain free and healthy lifestyle. Jeffrey is a regular gym-goer and enjoys nature walks where he can admire nature’s scenery.
