Chiropractic came into Dr. Phillips life after injuring himself during a football game. He sought treatment for his back pain from a local Chiropractor, and his pain was relieved. He was then inspired to join the Chiropractic profession to help those that had similar problems. He continues to be inspired to help the Albany community to live a better, healthier, and a more productive life.
Having a special interest in Chiropractic Neurology, Posture, Ergonomics and Rehabilitation, he is currently learning with the American Posture Institute to understand more about postural neurology and how posture can affect daily life with solutions to improve them for better health and function. Moreover, he also takes additional courses in chiropractic neurology to further understand how Chiropractic optimizes brain function.
Dr Phillips Ong joins our team from Malaysia. Coming from a diverse culture, he is able to converse in English, Mandarin and Bahasa Malay. He completed his studies in South East Asian’s first and only Chiropractic school, the International Medical University (IMU).
As an EVT certified practitioner in New Zealand, he is able to manage extremities (arm & leg) conditions as well as spinal conditions. Common conditions such as rotator cuff injury (shoulder pain), carpel tunnel syndrome (wrist pain with numbness/tingling in the hand), patella femoral tracking (knee cap pain) and plantar fasciitis (foot arch / heel pain) are a few to name that he has helped. Besides providing Chiropractic adjustment, with his interest in rehabilitation, he is able to personalize rehabilitation exercise to add on to your care plan.
With better health and function in mind for patients, Dr. Phillips believes the way forward is by empowering patients to take care of themselves better with Chiropractic care and proper rehabilitation.
