McKenzie Method®

Our certified McKenzie practitioners offer a new treatment option to patients suffering from back, neck and extremity problems, as well as headache symptoms.  Also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, the McKenzie Method® is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world.  This approach continues to be the most researched physical therapy based method available.  The key distinction is its initial assessment component - a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan.  Rarely is time or money wasted to perform expensive tests.  Certified McKenzie clinicians have a valid indicator to know right away whether - and how - the method will work for each patient. 

When appropriate, the basis of McKenzie treatment takes advantage of the patient's own movements and forces to abolish the pain and restore function.  A series of individualized exercises subsequent to the patient's responses during the assessment are prescribed and - most critically - are based on the Directional Preference that will centralize or abolish pain, i.e., extension or flexion, right or left lateral movement, etc. In essence, the treatment must match the assessment findings or the results will be inferior.
