McKenzie Therapy

What is the McKenzie Method?

The McKenzie method also known as MDT was developed by a world-renowned physical therapist; Robin McKenzie in 1956 in wellington, New Zealand.

The McKenzie Method is a reliable, well researched assessment and treatment process for all patients suffering from 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.

The treatment principle of the McKenzie method is to rapidly reduce pain, heals injury & weakness without the use of drugs or surgeries.

Many finds relief /results the first session. Most gets better within 6 sessions and our patients love it.
