MCKENZIE MECHANICAL DIAGNOSIS & THERAPY (MDT)
MCKENZIE MECHANICAL DIAGNOSIS & THERAPY
Without a full range of motion and proper use of joints, our backs, necks and joints become stiff and less mobile, leading to pain, greater loss of movement and dysfunction. The McKenzie method is a standardized assessment tool, defining and classifying movement problems and recommending appropriate treatment.
MDT helps to treat conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, radiating leg pain, arm pain/numbness, and sciatica.
One of the key components of this method is patient education. This method utilizes education to train the patient on proper posture and ergonomics and provides the patient with exercises to treat their own pain. It is directed toward patient self-treatment methods, therefore making the patient less reliant on the doctor for relief of their symptoms.
