Developed by world renown physiotherapist, Robin McKenzie, the McKenzie Method is a three step process of assessment, treatment and the prevention most commonly for neck and back pain. The method is mostly recognised as a self-help strategy in that patients heal themselves by following a series of prescribed individualised exercises.
Most importantly, by learning how to self-treat their problems, patients gain an understanding of how to minimise the risk of recurrence and in the event of re-injury, deal with it accordingly.
Sometimes two patients will have pretty much the exact same problem, but strangely, respond to completely different forms of treatment. Practising the McKenzie Method has allowed me another angle of approach to neck and back pain. Having this extra string to my bow allows me to take another shot at helping those in need of relief. — Tom
