Quick pain relief with very little intervention…sound too good to be true? People suffering from back and neck pain can often benefit from the McKenzie method of treatment where the patient practices certain exercises designed to eliminate pain.
The McKenzie Method is based on the idea that self-treatment empowers the patient and reduces their dependency on medical intervention. By promoting the body’s potential to heal itself, The McKenzie Method® assesses, diagnoses, and treats patients without medication, surgery or other passive methods such as heat, ice or ultrasounds. McKenzie allows patients to learn the principles and empowers them to be in control of their own pain management, which can reduce dependency on medical intervention.
Benefits of McKenzie Therapy
– Patients who are educated in self-management can practice exercise and treatment methods at the first sign of pain. Symptoms can usually be relieved before they become severe.
– When it comes to pain management, the McKenzie Method works quickly, meaning less therapy visits overall.
The end goal of the McKenzie Method is to teach patients who are suffering from neck or back pain how to treat themselves and manage their own pain for life by utilizing certain exercises. We ultimately want you to quickly reduce your pain and get you back to doing the things you love to do, all while minimizing the risk for the pain to return.
