Also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, the McKenzie Method® is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education for back, neck and extremity problems. The key distinction is its initial assessment component - a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan. Rarely are expensive tests required, Certified MDT clinicians have a valid indicator to know right away whether - and how - the method will work for each patient.
