What is the McKenzie Method?
How Does It Work?
The physical therapists at Color Country Physical Therapy are trained in the MDT system, and are able to assess and classify all complaints of the musculoskeletal system. That means that if a problem is coming from the spine, extremity joints, muscles or tendons, then an MDT evaluation is appropriate. One of our MDT clinicians will be able to identify if MDT is indicated, what management strategy is best, and outline a predicted recovery pathway.
