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:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan
  • 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.

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.

JAMA recommends chiropractic or acupuncture as first means of treating back pain

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) now  recommends chiropractic or acupuncture as a first means of treating back pain.

Click here to see the full article from The Journal of the American Medical Association.

Fox News also reported on the study and noted “The JAMA`s recommendation comes on the heels of a recent study out of the medical journal Spine where sufferers of lower back pain all received standard medical care (SMC) and half of the participants additionally received chiropractic care. The researchers found that in SMC plus chiropractic care patients, 73% reported that their pain was completely gone or much better after treatment compared to just 17% of the SMC group”.

NO REFERRALS REQUIRED TO SEE OUR CHIROPRACTOR

One of the underlying principles of Ontario’s Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) is to permit the public to exercise freedom of choice of health care provider within a range of safe options.

A referral is NOT REQUIRED to see your local Markham Chiropractor, Dr. Derek Ng, however many of our patients are often referred to the Dr. Ng, by other healthcare providers, friends and family.  Dr. Ng and his dedicated support staff at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab strive to provide the highest standard of clinical care.

If you have any questions about Chiropractic or Acupuncture, give our office a call at 905-554-2118.

GOT NECK PAIN?

According to The Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010 Task Force on Neck Pain:

* Most people can expect to experience some neck pain in their lifetimes, although for the majority, neck pain will not seriously interfere with normal activities.

* Depending on the case definitions used, the 12-month prevalence of neck pain ranged from 12.1% to 71.5% in the general population, and from 27.1% to 47.8% in workers. However, neck pain with associated disability was less common: 12-month prevalence estimates ranged from 1.7% to 11.5% in the general population.

* Each year, between 11% and 14.1% of workers reported being limited in their activities because of neck pain. Neck pain was common in all occupational categories, and the results of the Ontario cohort study suggest that worker’s compensation data significantly underestimate the burden of neck pain in workers.

* The number of persons seeking health care in emergency rooms for traffic-related Whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) has been increasing over the past 3 decades.

Markham Chiropractic + Rehab provides Chiropractic and Acupuncture services to help with neck pain, numbness and tingling in the hands and/or upper back and shoulder problems. Not sure what the problem is? That is what your local Markham Chiropractor can help you with!
