What we offer
Mechanical diagnosis and treatment –McKenzie™ Therapy
The industry leading technique, The Mckenzie Method is an overall program of assessment, treatment and prevention strategies that are performed by a McKenzie certified physical therapist. While the McKenzie Method aims to empower the patient and promote independence with treatment, manual treatment is also incorporated and essential to the success of this approach. The ultimate goal of the McKenzie Method is to teach patients suffering from spinal pain how to manage their problems independently and understand their spine. Each patient’s spinal condition is slightly different from the next. The importance of fully understanding how your spine behaves is paramount in your ability to lead a functional and comfortable life.
Manual therapy- Maitland therapy
Maitland-Australian Concept. This concept of assessment and treatment for SPINAL and PERIPHERAL conditions is recognized worldwide as an efficient, safe and gentle way to alleviate pain, restore movement, and maximize function.
General stretching and strengthening
It conditions the upper and lower body to better support and protect the spine for overall health, not just the affected area.
Strengthening of the weakened muscles that support the spine. Core stability is essential for the maintenance of an upright posture and especially for movements and lifts that require extra effort such as lifting a heavy weight from the ground to a table. Without core stability the lower back is not supported from inside and can be injured by strain caused by the exercise. It is also believed that insufficient core stability can result in lower back pain, poor posture and lethargy.
Good posture is an easy and very important way to maintain a healthy mind and body. When you practice correct posture, your body is in alignment with itself. This can alleviate common problems such as back pain, headaches, and fatigue. Good posture comes from strong core muscles that stabilize your torso, whether you’re sitting at your desk or running errands all day. Posture correction is important to treat and further prevent back and neck pain.

Traction gently extends the neck, opening the spaces between the cervical vertebrae and temporarily alleviating pressure on the affected discs. Taking the pressure off of the nerves and opening up the spine allows inflammation to dissipate and pressure to come off nerves. This kind of traction may work extremely well when the neck pain is acute.
