McKenzie Method

Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy or MDT is a philosophy which holds three key components:

  1. Assessment:  A comprehensive and logocial step-by-step process to evaluate the patient’s problem quickly.  This mechanical examination can “classify” most patient conditions by the level of pain or limitation that results from certain movements or positions.

  2. Treatment: A series of individual exercises are then prescribed.  We emphasize active patient involvement, which minimizes fewer visits to the clinic.

  3. Prevention:  By learning how to self-treat the current problem, patients gain the hands-on knowledge on how to minimize the risk of recurrence and to quickly deal with the recurrence if it happens.  The likelihood of problems persisting can more easily be prevented through self-maintenance.

Since each and every visit is very focused on specific tasks and strategies it takes less time to achieve progress with patients than with other methods of physical therapy.  Our patients love that.

The McKenzie Method has allowed us to successfully treat so many of our patients with the most severe pain, some who have suffered for years.  Please visit our Patient Testimonials page and read some of our Success Stories.
