Mc Kenzie Derangement Therapy MDT
The Successful Concept for Acute Back and Neck Pain.
Doctors, therapists and patients worldwide trust the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® to treat spinal and joint problems.
Most musculo-skeletal pain is “mechanical” in origin. This means that everyday movements and postures cause pain. By systematically analyzing his experience with patients, New Zealand physiotherapist Robin McKenzie found that certain movements and positions can often eliminate pain and restore function.
Robin McKenzie believed most patients could learn to treat themselves if properly instructed. He showed that self-treatment empowered patients, reducing their dependence on medical interventions. The McKenzie Method® promotes the body’s ability to heal itself – without medication, surgery or passive measures such as heat, ice or ultrasound. In addition, the method meets the growing demand by patients and payers for professional rehabilitation services that help patients develop their self-treatment skills in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner.
Mc Kenzie Derangement Therapy MDT is a method of diagnosis and therapy of acute and subacute spinal conditions. Mechanical diagnosis and therapy are made based on repetitive movements in non-symptomatic directions and then performed as therapy.
There are a lot of good scientific studies proving the effectiveness of MDT.
