McKenzie Therapy

The McKenzie Method is not merely extension exercises. It is a total approach to spine therapy based on evidence-based principles and fundamentals.

The emphasis is on self-treatment — educating patients to manage their own condition. This allows patients to gain control, helping to resolve the condition rather than provide temporary relief. With consistent management, the body will heal.

Spine and McKenzie Therapy is for people with:Degenerated Disc, Disease Sciatica/Lumbar Radiculopathy, Neck Pain & Whiplash, Cervical Disc Problems, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Low Back Pain, Herniated Disc, Headaches, Facet Syndrome, Jaw Pai,nSacral Iliac Dysfunction, Postural Syndromes

Why is Aquatic therapy beneficial?

Aquatic exercise in our 92-degree therapy pool offers unique physical and physiological benefits. The physical properties of water help make exercise less difficult and painful. As an assist, buoyancy helps decrease forces placed on limbs that are less able to bear weight. There is less strain on the muscles and joints, encouraging freedom of movement. Water supports the body, reduces joint stress, and provides resistance and assistance to movement, allowing improved mobility, strength and function.
