More about mcKenzie method

The McKenzie Method is a specific classification and treatment strategy technique for spinal and extremity pain. A McKenzie practitioner will evaluate and treat your pain utilizing the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) method. This method includes repeated end range movement testing, together with postural loading to assess and determine the cause of your pain. The therapist will utilize the assessment to create a therapy plan and provide specific exercises to reach your goals. Having a Certified MDT practitioner on staff has increased the tools and resources we utilize to help you be your best and get back to moving the way you want.

I had a wonderful experience with Dave and Jessica after rotator cuff and bicep tendon repair. They were knowledgeable, kind, helpful, reassuring and made my harder than I thought experience quite manageable. I have to say I will miss them! So thankful for i’move and what they have done for me!
