What is the McKenzie Method?

According to the McKenzie Institute International, “the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is an internationally acclaimed method of assessment and treatment for spinal and extremity pain developed by New Zealand Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. It has been widely used all over the world for more than 30 years. MDT clinicians are trained to assess and diagnose all areas of the musculoskeletal system. That means that if a problem exists in or around the spine, joint or muscle, an MDT evaluation may be appropriate. MDT is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by clinicians and patients all over the world for back, neck and extremity problems. This approach continues to be one of the most researched physical therapy based methods available.”

Encore RehabilitationCorporate Office Reception for visiting Chinese Medical Professionals-Decatur, Alabama

The Corporate Offices of Encore Rehabilitation recently hosted medical professionals from China with a tour and reception. One highlight of the evening was a presentation given by Encore Rehabilitation President Paul Henderson and Vice-President Paige Plash on the history and philosophy of Encore.

Another highlight was an informative talk given by Dr. Jun Hu, Assistant Dean at Shanghai University College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dr. Hu is passionate about providing quality rehab care in his country, including expanding the use of Physical Therapy.

There are currently about 1,700 Physical Therapists in China. By the year 2020, China will have over 400 million people over the age of 60, many of which will need rehab.  The use of Physical Therapy is growing in China as they look to “westernize” rehab services. This group of medical professionals was touring Encore facilities to learn more about how Physical Therapy may be used for rehab care.

Encore Rehabilitation is the largest privately owned rehabilitation company in the Southeast United States, offering Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy as well as  Industrial Rehab, Sports Medicine, and Athletic Training services. Encore has been serving families and communities for over 35 years.
