McKenzie method (MDT) consists of a mechanical diagnosis and a therapy based on it. Complaints, range of motion, location, type and strength of pain, responses to specific movements show the cause of the symptoms and the correct therapeutic direction. As a causal therapy, the McKenzie method’s key is not covering symptoms, but finding and healing the musculoskeletal problem.
Your physiotherapist decides on the necessity of McKenzie exercises during the initial assessment, so please choose ’physiotherapy with assessment’ upon reservation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it necessary to take painkillers before treatment?
Treatment should never be preceded by taking any painkiller medicines or substances as covering the symptoms causes false results during the assessment.
After how many treatments can I expect changes?
In the vast majority of cases range of motion increases and pain decreases after the first treatment.
May I partake in therapy in case of acute pain?
Yes, do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible during the painful period.
