BACK PAIN SLOW YOU DOWN Back pain is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and is estimated that 60-80% of the population will experience back pain in their lifetime. It is the 3rd most common reason for doctor visits and is estimated to cost Americans $50-100 billion annually in health care costs. Most episodes of back pain are mechanical and will respond to conservative treatment. The McKenzie Method (MDT) is a safe and effective evidencebased protocol of treatment that has become a standard of care for musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities.
Do you or someone you know have back pain….we can help!
An MDT certified therapist will: • Determine a treatment strategy based on response to movement • Education on self care to help ensure full recovery • Restore tolerance to all prior activity and participation • Help to self manage pain in the event of a future episode
