The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for back and neck problems. Here at Elite, our certified McKenzie therapist utilizes this reliable assessment process which is intended for all musculoskeletal problems affecting the spine, as well as issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms, and intermittent numbness in the hands or feet. This exercise based approach of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation of patients without the use of expensive diagnostic imaging (e.g. x-rays and MRIs).
The treatment principles of the McKenzie Method promote the body’s potential to repair itself and do not involve the use of medication, heat, cold, ultrasound, needles or surgery. McKenzie allows patients to learn the principles and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on medical intervention.
