The Mckenzie Method, also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT), is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for back, neck and extremity problems. This approach continues to be the most researched physical therapy based method available. While it is mostly used in the physical therapy realm, its integration into a chiropractic regimen is a natural fit.

Passive treatments are those therapies which are done to the patient; active therapies are done by the patient. As the old adage goes, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." While passive chiropractic manipulation alone is a powerful tool for treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, coordinating active McKenzie mechanical exercises alongside provides a more comprehensive and permanent cure.

The McKenzie Method addresses a growing demand from patients and third-party payers for professional rehabilitation services that educate the patient and develop the patient's self treatment skills in a cost-effective and time-effective manner. MDT credits the patient's ability to learn the principles and be in control of their own symptom management, reducing their dependency on medical intervention and gaining life-long pain management and preventive skills. It also promotes the body's potential to heal itself without medication, heat, cold, ultrasound, needles, surgery or a physical dependency on the chiropractor. When McKenzie Method is coupled with chiropractic manipulation, treatment goals are achieved rapidly and the patient learns the skills to keep themselves out of trouble in the future.
