Markham Chiropractor New Patient

Chiropractic Manipulation + Subluxation

Chiropractic manipulations (adjustments) are a form of active manual treatment provided by Dr. Ng to help decrease pain, to increase motion, to return the subluxated vertebrae (spinal misalignments) to as normal a position as possible and to restore communication from the brain to the rest of your  body.

What can chiropractic adjustments help with?
Chiropractic adjustments are effective in helping patients with conditions such as headaches, neck pain and back pain.

How do YOU get subluxations?
Subluxations in the spine can happen anytime throughout your life span and usually are caused by any stress (physical,  mental or chemical) that a person cannot adapt to.  In the early stages, it can affect muscles, ligaments and sometimes nerves.   If left untreated, it can affect the discs and overall structure of the spine .

How do you know if YOU have subluxations in the spine?
That’s where your markham chiropractor, Dr. Ng, will perform a comprehensive examination and evaluation including those tests necessary to determine the precise cause of your problem.

Physiotherapy Mobilization + Shoulder Pain

Physiotherapy mobilization is a form of active manual treatment provided by Maria Enriquez to help decrease pain, increase range of motion and increase joint lubrication.

It involves providing manual oscillations (motion) into a  joint (i.e. shoulder, knee, wrist, etc.) at various grades (intensity) depending on the goal of treatment.  It is effective in helping patients with injuries such as tendinitis or rotator cuff problems.

In addition to mobilization, the physiotherapy session will include active therapies (exercises) which will help to strengthen muscles that are too weak or loosen muscles that are tight.

We file your insurance for you!

One of the most frequently asked questions from new patients is, “Can your office direct bill with my insurance?”  The answer is, YES!  Unlike offices where the patients have to pay for the services and then get reimbursed by the insurance, our office will file directly with your insurance.

As a result:

  • You pay less.
  • You don’t have to fill out confusing forms.
  • You won’t have anything to mail to your insurance company.
  • You don’t have to wait to get reimbursed.

Insurance companies we can file:

  • Desjardins Insurance
  • Great West Life Assurance Company
  • Green Shield
  • Industrial Alliance
  • Johnson Inc
  • Manulife Financial
  • Maximum Benefit or Johnston Group
  • Standard Life Assurance Company
  • Sun Life Financial

Although rare, there are some insurance plans that will not allow offices to direct bill – our office will help you determine if your insurance permits direct billing.

Pre + Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

We’ve been getting several inquiries about pre and post-surgery rehabilitation services at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab  and what our health care providers can do to help them recover, heal quicker and/or rebuild muscular strength with Chiropractic, Acupuncture or Physiotherapy.

Many of these outpatient surgeries happen at nearby hospitals in Markham and patients are often given limited at-home exercises to perform on their own (without any supervision) and/or are told to find an office where they can get one-on-one treatment for Chiropractic, Acupuncture or Physiotherapy.

Markham Chiropractic + Rehab’s very own physiotherapy resident, Maria Enriquez, has extensive experience working with PRE and POST surgery candidates to help maintain the function, strength and range of motion of the muscles and joints pre-surgery or helping the patient regain near to full range of motion post-surgery.  In addition, to assist with the healing process, Dr. Derek Ng, can utilize Acupuncture around the surgical site.
