Mark Malowney - Langley Chiropractor

Dr. Mark Malowney

Dr. Mark Malowney is a chiropractic doctor (although he almost wasn’t – more on that later) and the owner and founder of Rebound Sport and Spine. Growing up, Dr. Mark dreamed of a career as a professional athlete. He knows firsthand the devastating effects injuries can have on an individual’s personal and professional life. His unwavering commitment to personalized, evidence-based sports injury recovery excellence stems from his personal journey. Dr. Mark has years of experience in sports medicine that enable him to skillfully diagnose difficult, elusive injuries and guide patients along the path to recovery. His passion is high-quality, patient-centered care. He strongly believes that collaboration between chiropractic doctors, patients, and other health providers is critical for successful healing. It is this belief in the healing power of collaborative, evidence-based treatment that inspired Dr. Mark to launch Rebound Sport and Spine.

In addition to musculoskeletal injuries, Dr. Mark is certified in concussion management by Complete Concussion Management. Throughout his sports career, he experienced numerous concussions that severely affected him personally and professionally. It was through this experience that Dr. Mark realized the vast gaps that existed in concussion treatment and prevention knowledge. He now regularly gives educational talks and seminars to local sports teams and organizations to help promote best practices and dispel false concussion myths.

Dr. Malowney is directly involved with several local sports teams. He is proud to serve as head trainer for the Langley Rams Junior Football Club (Go Rams!). As part of his work with the Rams, he initiated a concussion baseline testing protocol to ensure safe and evidence-based assessment and return to play guidelines for Rams athletes. Dr. Mark also works with the Langley Bears football club and the Langley Trappers hockey team.

Dr. Mark enjoys passing on his knowledge by mentoring practicum students from Trinity Western University and Western States University.

Dr. Mark earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) with Clinic Honours from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2009.

Additionally, he holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Kinesiology with distinction, from the University of Victoria and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Dr. Cory Niedjalski

Dr. Cory Niedjalski is the newest chiropractor at Rebound. He believes in patient-centered care first and foremost and aims to meet his patients’ individual goals and needs in an evidence-based manner armed with knowledge of current research. Dr. Cory strives to provide a personalized approach to all his patients to get them back to functioning best in whatever activities mean most to them whether it is sports, fitness, spending time with friends and family, or anything else. He believes the best way to achieve this is a collaborative team approach involving himself, other healthcare practitioners, and most importantly, the patient.

Dr. Cory graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in North York, Ontario. Previous to this, he attended the University of the Fraser Valley where he completed 3 years in the Kinesiology program. Dr. Cory has been involved in some research projects at the college as a research assistant to college faculty in addition to working as a tutor to students behind him in the program.

Having grown up in Langley, Dr. Cory is excited to be back in the place that he calls home offering care to those with musculoskeletal injuries. While playing a few sports in his youth, Dr. Cory always considered football to be his passion and when it became clear to him that playing at the college or junior levels would not be an option, he shifted his focus to coaching. Dr. Cory began coaching football at the minor level in Langley at the age of 16 and later coached with the Langley Rams Junior Football Club from 2013 to 2017 before leaving for chiropractic college. While at chiropractic college he continued his involvement in football as an athletic trainer working with several teams in the Greater Toronto Area and York Region.

Dr. Cory treats a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries with specialty in back pain, neck pain and headaches.  He takes an approach to patient care that focuses on movement – using knowledge and techniques from courses such as Functional Range Conditioning®, Athletic Movement Assessment®, and Integrated Patterning® – while also incorporating modern theories of pain science. He has also taken courses for additional training in TMJ/jaw pain conditions and lumbar spinal stenosis.

Dr. Cory pursued a career in chiropractic in part due to the great results he had seen with chiropractic care with Dr. Mark and other chiropractors for his own back pain that he experienced through his college years. Dr. Mark has been a mentor to him through the whole process and Dr. Cory is very happy for the opportunity to get to work with him and the great team at Rebound to help get patients better.
