Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (McKenzie Method)
The McKenzie Method of diagnosis and treatment uses a movement based system to assess and treat back and neck pain (www.mckenziemdt.org). This approach uses movements to reduce pressure on the nerve or disc and decrease the pain in the neck, mid back, back, arms, or legs. There is also an emphasis on posture while sitting and sleeping to alleviate pressure throughout the day and night.
The therapist will help you to establish an exercise program that will alleviate your symptoms and increase core strength to maintain the improvements made during physical therapy.
