Noted physical therapist Robin McKenzie first developed the McKenzie Method in the 1980s. Since then, it has established itself as an effective means of diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal issues, particularly those in the back and neck. A therapist trained in the McKenzie method will systematically determine the cause of your pain, then provide exercises to help you treat and prevent it.

How does the McKenzie Method work?

The McKenzie method is a results-oriented approach to treating back and neck pain. One of our therapists will first work with you to complete a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms, grouping them into subgroups based on how they react to particular movements, postures, or forces. This classification system allows us to better determine an accurate diagnosis–and your best course of treatment.

Once your assessment is complete, our therapists will use that information to provide a detailed overview of which exercises will best treat your condition and which ones you should avoid. The McKenzie method’s focus on patient involvement and education means you’ll feel more empowered as you work to resolve your pain and restore your body to full functionality.

In addition to helping you treat your pain now, the McKenzie method also includes education about preventing the pain from returning. Using our initial assessment, our therapists will show you which postures and movements to avoid to keep your pain away for good.
