McKenzie Method of MDT

Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy in Ravenswood, Lincoln Square, Andersonville Chicago

Our doctors use the McKenzie Method of mechanical diagnosis and therapy to properly evaluate, diagnose and treat all of our patients. MDT is an extremely reliable assessment process based on the patient’s symptom response to end-range joint movements. MDT has a 92% success rate for any musculoskeletal issues. These include back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, and even headaches. Other issues commonly classified include sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms, and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. If you are suffering from any such issues, then an MDT assessment would be ideal for you!

Developed by world-renowned expert physiotherapist Robin McKenzie in the 1950s, this well-researched, exercise-based approach of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation of patients without the use of expensive diagnostic imaging. The treatment principles of MDT promote the body’s potential to repair itself and do not involve the use of medications, injections, passive care, or surgery. McKenzie therapy allows patients to learn the principles of SELF-TREATMENT and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on invasive medical interventions and endless treatment plans.

If utilized correctly, the achievable goals of the McKenzie Method in a cost- and time-effective manner are to:

Accurately understand the patient’s presentation and behavior of symptoms.
Determine the most appropriate and effective treatment plan.
Eliminate symptoms and restore full function.
Empower the patient to self-treat and PREVENT RECURRENCES.
Help inform patients if other medical advice or testing is needed.
