Chiropractic Treatment and the McKenzie Method

The doctor of chiropractic is a specialist in spinal musculoskeletal disorders. Our doctors are expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many musculoskeletal injuries that may occur on the job or in your daily life.

Upon injury, the individual often alters the flexibility of the spinal joint. Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal movement and thus minimize pain and suffering. Gentle manipulative therapy or “adjustment” is often effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status. The doctor of chiropractic can also provide guidance with advice designed to reduce work-related injuries, proper lifting procedures and therapeutic stretching exercises.

The doctors also specialize in using the McKenzie Method, typically a physical therapy approach to treating your joints. The McKenzie Method educates, encourages, and empowers, you the patient to use self management skills to control and resolve your current symptoms and to reduce the recurrence and severity of future attacks.

The McKenzie diagnosis enables your practitioner to develop an individualized self treatment program tailored to your lifestyle. It identifies whether your symptoms will respond to conservative treatment and establishes a likely time frame. The McKenzie treatment approach educates you in the application of self treatment techniques to assist in the resolution of symptoms. Above all it puts you in control of your spinal pain rather than it controlling you.
