McKenzie Method​

At Urban Chiropractic, we are proficient in the utilization of the McKenzie Method, a cutting-edge strategy that emphasizes the human body’s inherent capacity for self-repair and recovery. The McKenzie Method forms the backbone of our personalized approach to patient care, which is rooted in the scientifically validated technique devised by Robin McKenzie, a renowned physiotherapist in the 1950s.

Our chiropractors’ use of the McKenzie Method begins with a comprehensive assessment of your physical condition, focusing on your symptoms, medical history, and physical capabilities. This assessment avoids invasive diagnostic imaging like MRIs and x-rays, which not only reduces patient discomfort but also mitigates the risks associated with excessive radiation exposure. Instead, we rely on the method’s systematic and clinically supported approach to assess the nature and extent of your musculoskeletal condition.

Following the initial assessment, we progress towards diagnosis and treatment, leaning on the McKenzie Method’s principles to design an effective, customized exercise program for you. Our aim is to empower you with the ability to take charge of your health. By teaching you specific exercises, we guide you towards managing and alleviating your pain independently, minimizing the need for frequent office visits and fostering self-sufficiency.

The treatment principles of the McKenzie Method are in harmony with our overarching philosophy at Urban Chiropractic. We believe in the body’s inherent potential to heal itself without resorting to invasive procedures, medications, or technologies like ultrasound and needles. The method’s exercise-based approach complements our dedication to natural healing processes, providing a treatment framework that is safe, non-invasive, and conducive to whole-body wellness.

While the McKenzie Method’s universal applicability makes it an ideal solution for a wide array of musculoskeletal problems, its effectiveness is particularly noteworthy in dealing with common issues such as back, neck, knee, shoulder, and ankle pain. Moreover, it has proven beneficial in addressing conditions associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms, and numbness in hands and feet.

With the McKenzie Method, we don’t just treat your symptoms; we strive to tackle the root cause of your pain, delivering holistic, long-term relief. Whether you’re struggling with chronic pain or recovering from an injury, our experienced chiropractors will help you regain your mobility, reduce your pain, and enhance your overall quality of life.

At Urban Chiropractic, our ultimate aim is to foster a culture of self-care and resilience, helping you achieve and maintain optimal health through methods that resonate with your body’s natural rhythms. Our application of the McKenzie Method signifies our commitment to holistic, patient-centric care, reinforcing our belief in the body’s extraordinary capacity for self-healing.
