The McKenzie Method – is it right for you?

Back pain is not always curable and for many it’s a life-long problem. If you’ve been suffering from back pain for a long time consider learning more about self-management therapies, like The McKenzie Method.

The goal of any therapy is to help a patient become as independent as possible by teaching them exercises that will help them to alleviate their aches and pains. This is especially true with the McKenzie approach. It involves minimal hands on intervention from the therapist and offers more patient directed activities. The goal is for the patient to be able to carry on the exercise without the assistance of a physical therapist so that they have the tools to relieve their pain.

More and more local physicians are referring their patients for McKenzie therapy, as there is a lot of research behind this method of treatment and its effectiveness in the relief of back and neck pain. For more information call or visit any of our locations.

You have a choice when it comes to physical therapy provider!

Most often when a physician prescribes physical therapy, they simply give the patient a referral to a certain office without asking them about their preferences. That’s why many people don’t even know they have a choice. But you do, and it’s important you choose what’s right for you. Where you live and work, drive time, and supporting your local businesses are all factors that should be considered. So if you or someone you know is considering physical therapy, remember…it’s your choice, and we hope you choose NPT.
