The McKenzie Method is a comprehensive and logical step-by-step process that quickly and systematically evaluates neck, back and peripheral problems. The mechanical examination classifies most conditions according to the pain or motion response to certain movements or positions.
The McKenzie method is useful in treating a variety of conditions including, neck pain, arm pain, headaches, back pain, and sciatica.
McKenzie treatment prescribes a series of individualised exercises. The emphasis is on active patient involvement to compliment your physiotherapy treatment, which minimises the number of visits to the clinic.
By learning how to self-treat the current problem, you will gain hands-on knowledge on how to minimise the risk of recurrence and to rapidly deal with recurrence if it occurs.
