Course Overview:

This 28 hour course presents the theory of the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy; as applied in the examination and treatment of patients with low back and related referred pain.

One day of the course is completed as an online module, prior to attending the face to face teaching. The other three days are with an Instructor at a teaching venue.  

Through lectures and patient demonstrations the derangement, dysfunction and postural syndromes are described in detail.  Appropriate treatment plans are designed with an emphasis on the use of patient self-treatment procedures.  

The clinical efficacy and limitations of the McKenzie approach to the lumbar spine are illustrated by group discussion and patient demonstrations.

Course Goals

This course will provide participants with the introductory knowledge, basic skills and abilities to begin to:

  • Appropriately apply the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to patients with lumbar spine problems. 
  • Distinguish between the McKenzie syndromes (derangement, dysfunction, postural) and other spinal conditions and provide appropriate management regimens for each of the McKenzie syndromes. 
  • Identify when the application of external forces is required for the resolution of symptoms using McKenzie’s concept of progression of forces.
  • Assist patients to engage in their own care and apply the therapeutic processes to achieve management goals.
