Specialist Services - Back Pain: McKenzie Technique
Do you have acute or recurrent back pain? The McKenzie Technique can empower you to regain control and overcome your condition.
- The method is an exercise based approach designed to educate and empower patients on how to self-manage their condition
- It is mainly used in the management of back and neck pain (with or without peripheral symptoms) but can also be used for the extremeties
- It can be used for both acute and chronic problems and particularly recurrent issues
- Diagnosis is formed by looking at the patient's mechanical presentation and usually the exercises are designed around their 'Directional Preference'
with a particular focus on posture
“After suffering from bouts of lower back pain for over 7 years, a friend recommended the McKenzie technique. Within a few days of starting the exercises (3 times a day to begin with), I began to feel a vast improvement in back strength and a considerable reduction of pain. I contacted a McKenzie therapist to ensure I was performing the exercises correctly and to monitor my progress.
I found Kathryn Moore at Crystal Palace Physio Group who gave me excellent advice on exercise techniques and the use of the McKenzie lumbar supports and other hints and tips on how to manage challenges such as standing and sitting for prolonged periods.
I would highly recommend McKenzie and Kathryn – you won’t get results unless you invest time to do the exercises and make changes to any ‘bad’ postural habits but the benefits are enormous!”
