Do Not Let Back Pain Limit Your Activity

May 10, 2012

Jeanne O'Malley PT,certMDT, is certified in the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, the McKenzie Method.

Not all back pain is the same. Not all back pain is treated the same. The "one treatment fits all" approach to treating back pain is the reason back pain, which could be resolved in a timely manner, lingers.

The majority of back pain is caused by a mechanical change in the back. This change could be caused by poor sitting posture after a day of yard work. Frequently it is the posture assumed after an activity, rather than the activity itself, that causes back pain. An evaluation by a physical therapist certified in the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, the McKenzie Method, can accurately identify the cause of back pain and develop a treatment plan specific to the identified problem. The result is quick return to function.

"Also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, the McKenzie Method® is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education for back, neck and extremity problems. The key distinction is its initial assessment component-a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan. Rarely are expensive tests required, Certified MDT clinicians have a valid indicator to know right away whether-and how-the method will work for each patient." (The McKenzie Institute)

The Results...Amazing Outcomes!

"Thank you Jeanne for my being able to walk normally and best of all, go up and down the many stairs in my house."
