McKenzie Method Physical Therapy in Vero Beach

MDT is a comprehensive, evidenced-based system of active patient involvement and education for back, neck and extremity conditions. The evaluation process is safe and reliable; it establishes the Diagnosis and the resultant treatment plan. Listening to the patient and step by step protocols are key components. At times the findings are that the person does not have a mechanical component and thus is not a candidate for MDT. If it can be established that physical therapy is not appropriate on the 1st visit rather than on the 10th visit, this is NOT a failure. Rather, this is an important, and possibly critical, finding.

PRECISE EVALUATION = IMMEDIATE RESULTS

Globally recognized as a leading treatment for back, neck and extremity disorders

“Rapidly Reversible Low Back Pain” is the title of a book about the Mckenzie Method... written by an Orthopedic Surgeon! What does that tell you?

    I feel enormous gratitude for the work I did with Marjorie, on a herniated disc. After trying many different approaches from traditional PT to emotional work over 20 years, I was skeptical to say the least. And yet, within 8 days my herniation was no longer a problem — and this was without any drugs or surgery, and with work I mostly did on myself. There’s still post-work to do healing the secondary issues around that herniation and some of the imbalances that may have led to it in the first place. But I used to wake up with anywhere between a 2 and 6 of pain, and those 6 days I would know were ruined in the first minute of being awake. It’s been 4 months now and the pain has never hit a 3. Remarkable! I owe you enormous thanks Marjorie!
