The McKenzie Method: Empowering Patients with Self-Treatment

The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) is an evidence-based system of musculoskeletal care that emphasizes patient empowerment and self-treatment. Our goal is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to effectively manage your condition independently.

MDT focuses on the assessment and management of spinal and extremity conditions, offering tailored postural advice and individualized exercises. When guided by a trained MDT clinician, the majority of patients can successfully self-manage their condition, leading to lasting improvements in pain and function.

The McKenzie Method courses are taught in multiple languages worldwide and have their origins in New Zealand. The method was developed in the 1950s by Robin McKenzie, a pioneering physiotherapist from Wellington, who made a groundbreaking discovery in musculoskeletal care.

At Total Body Physio, we have a team of highly skilled MDT-trained physiotherapists ready to help you on your journey to better health. Our professionals have successfully treated numerous cases using the McKenzie Method, consistently delivering outstanding results for our patients.
