Mckenzie Method

The McKenzie Method of MDT is a very reliable assessment and treatment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.) supported by research.

It is useful for treating other issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet.

Most musculoskeletal pain is “mechanical” in origin, which means it is not due to a serious pathology like cancer or infection but a result of abnormal or unusual forces occurring in the tissue or joints. This, in turn, means that a position, movement or activity caused the pain to start. So, if a mechanical force caused the problem then it is only logical that a mechanical force may be part of the solution.

The MDT system is designed to identify the cause, or source of the symptoms and develop a plan to correct or improve the mechanics. The result should yield a decrease or abolishment of the pain and functional problems.

The assessment explores these different positions and movements, how the patient performs them, and the response to symptoms from these movements and then a determination of how to proceed. This process empowers the patient to not only understand the origin and causes of their pain, but also gives them the tools necessary to treat themselves.

This place is the gold standard for physical therapy on the Kenai peninsula. The entire staff is very friendly and use a patient centered approach to their care. They also have a great receptionist who will work with you on making appointments and what best fits your schedule.
