At Hernandez Therapy Clinic in Fort Lauderdale, FL, our McKenzie-trained physical therapists can help you find solutions that work!

Noted physical therapist Robin McKenzie first developed the McKenzie Method in the 1980s.

A therapist trained in the McKenzie method will systematically determine the cause of your pain, then provide specific exercises to help you treat and prevent future episodes.

How does the McKenzie Method work?

The McKenzie method is a patient-centered approach to treating back and neck pain. It is based on the principle that mechanical forces can both cause and alleviate pain, and it emphasizes the patient’s active involvement in their own treatment.

One of our therapists will first work with you to complete a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms, grouping them into subgroups based on how they react to particular movements, postures, or forces. The McKenzie classification system allows us to determine better an accurate diagnosis–and your best course of treatment.

Once your assessment is complete, our therapists will use that information to provide a detailed overview of which exercises will best treat your condition and which ones you should avoid. The McKenzie method focuses on patient involvement and education to help empower you to resolve your pain and restore your body to full functionality.

In addition to helping you treat your pain now, the McKenzie method also includes education about preventing the pain from returning. Patients are taught how to recognize and respond to their symptoms with postural corrections, targeted exercises, and strategies to prevent future episodes.
