The McKenzie Method

The McKenzie Method is a system of evaluating and treating spinal disorders as well as problems with the joints or muscles of the arms or legs.

 

It is practiced extensively throughout the world in 40 countries and five continents. The majority of clinicians using this method in Canada are physiotherapists.

 

How is the McKenzie Method different from other treatments?

 

You are encouraged to take an active role in your own recovery with the emphasis being on self-treatment.

 

Assessment:

 

On your first visit, a McKenzie trained clinician will give you a thorough examination, which is designed to determine what may be causing your pain. From this, we will create and train you in your own personalized treatment program.

 

Prevention:

 

During the course of treatment, you will be shown how to prevent and manage future related problems.

We will also develop a custom maintenance program for you to deal with any sudden attacks of pain.

 

Education:

 

We are committed to providing education to help empower you to self treat. We also carry published books on this method available for your use.
