Mckenzie Method / MDT Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
MDT is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is used by clinicians and patients for back, neck and extremity problems. It is a four step process based on assessment, classification, treatment and prevention. Patients are given the knowledge and tools to self-treat, control their pain and prevent recurrence.
An important aspect is the initial assessment, consisting of a series of repeated movements and postures to see the affects they have on pain.
