The McKenzie Method is a diagnostic and therapy process offered by Physical Therapy at Tri-State Pain to help control pain, stiffness and your ability to do work and daily activities.

Developed by Robin McKenzie, a renowned physical therapist in the 1950s, the McKenzie Method is an exercise based approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment without the use of diagnostic X-rays and MRIs. The McKenzie Method relies on the body’s potential to repair itself without the use of medication, heat, cold, ultrasound or surgery. The approach encourages you to be in control of your own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on medical intervention.
