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.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Wrist pain can affect a wide range of people with different types of jobs.  At Markham Chiropractic + Rehab , we have seen wrist pain affect those who work as massage therapists, in an office setting (such as prolonged use of the computer) and/or in manual labour settings (such as a carpenter).

For example, an office worker (who uses the computer for prolonged periods of time) may complain of wrist pain which affects the patient from the wrist crease down to the hand. They may experience symptoms such as pain, numbness and/or tingling which could indicate compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel.  Without rehabilitation interventions such as Chiropractic, Acupuncture and/or Physiotherapy, the condition may progress  further resulting in pain to reach the forearm and even shoulder.

Let our Markham health care providers, Dr. Derek Ng or Maria Enriquez provide the best Chiropractic, Acupuncture and/or Physiotherapy to help you with your wrist pain.

Give our office a call at 905-554-2118 to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.

Use it or Lose it!

We’re approaching that time of the year again – “use it or lose it!” Each year, many patients lose out on hundreds of dollars through their extended health insurance provider, simply because time has slipped away. We know life gets busy and before you know it, another year has come and gone and you have not seen your Chiropractor or Physiotherapy Resident for your health care needs!

Don’t forget to take advantage of your remaining health insurance benefits before the end of the year!

Call our office today at 905-554-2118 to schedule an appointment.

Chiropractic + Physiotherapy Complement Each Other

We often have patients ask us, should I get Chiropractic or Physiotherapy (or both) for my “condition”?  Most of the time chiropractic, physiotherapy or both services whether performed alone or together can help patients improve their “condition”.

Chiropractic and Physiotherapy complement each other.  How?  Our Markham Chiropractor, Dr. Derek Ng works to restoring spinal health through manipulations (aka adjustments) while our Markham Physiotherapist Resident, Maria works to restoring the muscles surrounding the spine through exercises strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles.  Together, they balance the spine and reduce the stress placed on different areas of the body to help improve your “condition” and help you function better on a daily basis.

At Markham Chiropractic + Rehab, our vision is to be the go-to rehabilitation clinic for residents of Markham, Richmond Hill, Stouffville, Scarborough and surrounding communities.  By expanding our services to include Physiotherapy, we are excited to be able to help and reach so many more people who suffer from musculoskeletal problems such as neck pain, headaches, back pain, sprains/strains, numbness/tingling, shoulder pain or knee pain.

At Markham Chiropractic + Rehab, all chiropractic and physiotherapy sessions are one-on-one in private rooms.
No double booking.  No open gym feel.  No support staff replacing your Chiropractor of Physiotherapist.

You can rest assured that when you schedule an appointment for Chiropractic or Physiotherapy services, you will be working directly one-on-one with either Dr. Ng or Maria (or both) from the initial visit to the end of your treatment plan.
