McKenzie & Mulligan Treatment

McKenzie & Mulligan Treatment

It's all about the movement

We’ll show you exercises designed to eliminate back and neck pain.

Ease back, neck, and extremity pain with the McKenzie Method

The body is an amazing thing. Self-treatment can empower you and reduce your dependency on medical intervention. By promoting the body’s potential to heal itself, The McKenzie Method® assesses, diagnoses, and treats without medication, surgery or other passive modalities such as heat, ice or ultrasounds. By learning the principles you can be in control of your own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on medical intervention.

Move easier with Mulligan mobilization

This simple, yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal issues with pain-free manual joint “repositioning” techniques to reduce pain and allow for better range of motion. Typically results are immediate and long lasting. Learn more about the Mulligan Concept.

Due to our continuing education courses, we had a number of our physical therapists get Mulligan certified over the years.

The Mulligan Concept is ideal for:

  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Non-inflammatory pain
  • Acute pain from an injury
  • Rehab following a surgery
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Jaw or TMJ pain and movement restrictions
  • “Tennis elbow” or lateral elbow pain
  • Ankle sprains
