What is the McKenzie method?

The McKenzie Method® of diagnosis and treatment is used successfully around the world for back and neck conditions. The method has the philosophy of active patient participation in treatment and management which aids recovery and helps to reduce reoccurrences.

Research* has shown that assessment using the McKenzie method is as reliable or more reliable than using x-rays and MRIs in determining the source of low back pain and associated lower limb pain.

Our physiotherapists are trained in this method of assessment and treatment. One of our physiotherapists (James McGregor) has a post graduate diploma from the McKenzie Institute International.

*The McKenzie Institute International keeps a database of research relating to the McKenzie method.
