The McKenzie Method®
The McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is a method of assessment and treatment for spinal and extremity pain developed by Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie 30+ years ago.
MDT approach involves a detailed discussion and assessment to find the cause of your injury and then to educate and treat you appropriately, using specific exercises and manual therapy to help improve your pain and function.
Connect Therapy is a wholistic approach to the assessment and treatment of your injury, function and or pain. ConnectTherapy provides the therapist with an algorithm to find the true cause of the injury through functional movement analysis and hands-on techniques.
Once the true cause is determined the therapist provides manual therapy (hands-on therapy) as well as education and exercise therapy to help re-train better patterns of movement and prevent future injuries. With the education throughout treatment, the client takes on a greater understanding of what is occurring within their body. This is turn will improve body awareness and encourage re-training and future prevention.

Benefits of taping:
Stabilise an injury
Improve performance in athletes
Facilitate normal muscle movement
Encourage proper posture pattern
Tape is water resistant, strong enough to stay on for 3-5 days and then easily removed. It can comfortably be worn without binding or restriction of movement.
Bracing provides much needed support to unstable or uneven joints. A brace can help support an injured area or assist with proper joint alignment by gently restricting the range of movement in unstable joints. The brace will help to shift and share the weight load from the affected part of the joint to the unaffected part.
Ensuring the right brace is being used is very important. A well-fitted brace will often help our patients feel a reduction of discomfort and pain, as well as improve stability in the injured area. Our physiotherapists can help you find and size the correct brace that will benefit you the most.
