The McKenzie Therapy is a method that has been developed for the treatment of pain complaints that originate from the spine. These could be:
- back pain
- neck pain
- radiating pain in arm
- radiating pain in leg
McKenzie Therapy applied by physiotherapy and manual therapists
This method is scientifically based and very effective. The method was originally developed in New Zealand and is nowadays used worldwide by many enthusiastic physiotherapists and manual therapists.
After an extensive McKenzie examination, the therapist will make a clear diagnosis and explain the cause of your complaints. This results in a specific treatment process aimed at relieving your pain complaints.
McKenzie Therapy and Self-management
After one or two treatments, a clear reduction of your complaints is often noticeable. With a few simple exercises at home you can then reduce your symptoms yourself until you are completely pain-free. On the basis of the necessary tips and posture advice, and exercises for the long term, you ensure that the chance of your complaints returning is minimal. We call this “self-management“.
The McKenzie principle: Diagnosis -> Treatment -> Self-management -> Prevention!
