The McKenzie Method of MDT (mechanical diagnosis and therapy) is a reliable assessment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck, and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.), as well as issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. If you are suffering from any such issues, then a MDT assessment may be right for you!
Developed by world-renowned expert physiotherapist Robin McKenzie in the 1950s, this well-researched, exercise-based approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation. McKenzie allows patients to learn the principles and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on medical interventions.Make An Appointment
The McKenzie method/MDT assessment involves a detailed evaluation process. Based on the findings of the assessment patients are typically sent home with one with exercise to perform. Follow up visits will build on the initial assessment and further the patient towards being pain free. Education on prevention and self-management is at the core of this treatment approach.
