Mechanical Diagnosis

The McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is an internationally acclaimed method of assessment and treatment for spinal and extremity pain. It has been widely used all over the world for more than 30 years.

At PTSR, all of our therapist are trained in this system. Our clinicians are experts in assessing and diagnosing all areas of the musculoskeletal system. That means that if a problem exists in or around the spine, joint or muscle, an MDT evaluation may be appropriate.

MDT is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by clinicians and patients all over the world for back, neck and extremity problems. This approach continues to be one of the most researched physical therapy based methods available. Expensive tests such as MRI’s are often unnecessary.  Certified MDT clinicians are able to rapidly determine whether the method will be effective for each patient.
