How Does the McKenzie Method Physical Therapy Work?

Step 1: The Active Examination

As skilled Physical Therapists we listen to your detailed history and want to know how your spine pain started, what makes your pain better and what makes your spine pain worse. Then based on your descriptions we use an active spine examination with repeated movements and positions that are unique to the McKenzie Method of physical therapy and its examination process. This information about your spine establishes a clear understanding of what is the best exercise, position or hands on manual therapy technique is right for your spine. This creates a solid baseline to develop an individualized treatment plan for you.

Step 2: The Dynamic Diagnosis

You will be prescribed one specific exercise based on the thorough examination of your spine. In addition you will be given guidance for appropriate postures and behaviors to adopt or avoid to maximize the healing process. Our physical therapists will constantly re-evaluate your spine to observe how your symptoms have improved (or not) during every visit. This way we continue to progress, correct and modify your physical therapy treatment for maximum speed of recovery. In addition, the hands on technique act as a catalyst for your spine pain recovery.
