The McKenzie Method (tm) is a proven method designed to treat cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine disorders including bulging discs, sciatica, stenosis, arthritis, and joint problems. The McKenzie method is safe, conservative, and very effective, when preformed by a certified McKenzie Therapist, can reduce and completely abolish spine pain and related problems, and prevent it from ever coming back again. The therapists at Hertel and Brown PT will first evaluate a patient with spine pain to determine a diagnosis using a patients; symptoms and movement patterns. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, the therapist will treat the spine disorder using positions, repetitive movements, and joint mobilizations, which after a short time will decrease and eventually abolish the patients; symptoms. Finally, the most important aspect of the McKenzie Method (tm) is to teach the patient how to treat themselves with specific exercises that will prevent the problem from ever coming back again.
