At Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance, we are happy to provide the McKenzie Method for assessing and treating pain of the spine and extremities. This method, developed by world-renowned physiotherapist Robin McKenzie, focuses on the manipulation and treatment of the back, neck, arms, and legs. It is a highly reputable and successful method that has been used by licensed physical therapists for over 30 years.
Due to the vast success of the McKenzie Method, it isn’t surprising that it is accepted as the most research-tested approach across the globe. Our Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapists are trained to examine and diagnose musculoskeletal issues, and the McKenzie Method is a strong tool for helping determine a diagnosis. The method works by using a progression of mechanical forces to examine both the mechanical changes in the patient’s body, as well as any symptoms. This then classifies the patient into a spinal or extremity category, and the correct treatment plan can then be created with proper exercises, manual techniques, and patient education.
