Since then, it has proven itself as an effective means of assessing, diagnosing, and treating musculoskeletal issues, particularly those affecting the back and neck.

How does the McKenzie Method work?

The McKenzie Method, enriched by the use of MedX and Repex, is a patient-centered approach to addressing back and neck pain. It is founded on the principle that mechanical forces can both instigate and alleviate pain. Emphasizing the patient’s active involvement in their treatment, we integrate the MedX system for isolated spinal strength testing and training, and the Repex table to automate repetitive movement therapy.

One of our therapists will initially work with you to perform a thorough assessment of your symptoms. These are then grouped into subcategories based on their response to certain movements, postures, or forces. The combination of McKenzie’s classification system and MedX and Repex’s precision technologies allows us to formulate an accurate diagnosis and tailor your treatment plan.

Once your assessment is complete, our therapists will use that information to provide a detailed outline of which exercises will most effectively treat your condition, as well as the ones to avoid. The McKenzie Method emphasizes patient involvement and education, enabling you to resolve your pain and restore full functionality to your body.

Additionally, the McKenzie Method involves education about preventing the recurrence of pain. Patients are taught how to recognize and respond to their symptoms with postural corrections, targeted exercises, and strategies to prevent future episodes.
