Neck and back pain
March 22, 2013 at 4:58 PM
If you have been suffering from neck pain or back pain the McKenzie method may help you.
Robin McKenzie originally developed the method in 1956 and has now published many books and self help guides such as "Treat your own back" and "Treat your own neck". The method has been extensively researched and is currently one of the most accurate ways of diagnosing disc related pain.
The McKenzie method involves a detailed assessment by a therapist or doctor trained in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. The assessment helps the therapist to estabilish a diagnosis and to prescribe exercises that you can do at home to start self managing your pain.
At Auckland Physiotherapy our therapists are specially trained in this method of assessment and treatment and can give you the best possible advice on how to manage your pain.
