McKenzie Certified Physical Therapist: Treating Back Pain

Congratulations to our very own Diana Painter who has received her certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, which means she is now certified in the McKenzie method of treating for the spine and extremity.

To acquire the certification, Diana had to complete extensive course work involving the mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine as well as the extremities. In addition, she was required to complete a five part written exam and practical performance simulation.

Diana says she loves working with patients of all ages and diagnoses, but her interests in spine pain led her to obtain this particular certification. She feels the McKenzie method is a great tool for assessing and treating patients with back pain.

Way to go, Diana!
