Can exercise alleviate back pain?
A great read about Low Back Pain. A lot of excellent points made. I think there is more to it than just this, but clearly a lot of what is done is simply not effective. Worse yet, it can point the finger in the wrong direction (or more specifically at the wrong tissue). This is one of the main strengths of using MDT Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy - aka. the McKenzie method). The process/evaluation is designed on movement and patient/tissue response. Our treatments are based on what happens as we move you not static images. We have clinicians certified in the technique so you can rest assured you will get the best treatment and not some shotgun approach of varied techniques just thrown at you. .
