Rebound Sport & Spine Clinic - exercise

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 first hand the devastating effects injuries can have on an individual’s personal and professional life. Dr. Mark’s 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 doctor, patient, 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 musculo-skeletal injuries, Dr. Malowney 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.

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.

As a former international- Caliber track and field athlete and cancer survivor he prides himself in advocating and promoting positive health behaviours in others.

Shawn is a member of both of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s pain science & sport divisions. Currently, he is pursuing his Sport Physiotherapy Certificate.

Shawn’s philosophy and approach to physiotherapy has always been to empower his patients through education, safe and functional exercise progressions and manual techniques hoping to equip them with the tools they need to better maximize their function. He is also trained in intramuscular stimulation(IMS)/dry needling.

Shawn places a special emphasis on spending 1 on 1 time with his patients to help them better understand their pain.
