Encore Rehabilitation Physical Therapists recently attended the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® course, Cervical and Thoracic Spine. This was Part B of a 4-part series to become a McKenzie Method Creditialled Clinician (Cred. MDT).

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.”

Alice Korhonen – “I had lived in pain for years”

Alice Korhonen - Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Foley

After hip surgery, Alice Korhonen asked her doctor for physical therapy. She says, “I wanted to make sure that I was healing properly and wasn’t doing anything that would hinder a full recovery. I had lived in pain for years and my physical activity had been so limited that I was so ready for relief and a normal life (if there is such a thing!)”

Alice had received treatment at Encore Rehabilitation-Fairhope last summer. This summer she used Encore Rehabilitation-Foley for physical therapy. “I was so pleased with the treatment and warm, friendly feeling in the Fairhope office, I knew Encore was a good place to be. The staff at the Encore Rehabilitation-Foley office were so nice and wanted to help in any way they could.”  

“I feel very comfortable here and would choose Encore Rehabilitation again!”

We are glad you are doing better! Thank you, Alice, for the trust you have placed in us. We are committed to providing you with the best possible care.
