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

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.

Exercise Therapy

At Beaverton Physiotherapy we believe in providing our clients with self management tools for their injuries and pain. Exercises specific to your injury, your compensation and non-optimal loading to help improve your overall alignment, posture and reduce your pain.

 

At Beaverton Physiotherapy we also have a pilates reformer which allows for an initial gentle form of exercise to help establish core activation patterns and strengthening without much pain the next morning.

 

In addition you may also:

  • Develop long lean muscles and flexibility.

  • Develop a more evenly conditioned body – decreasing injury risk and improving posture and function.

  • Tune into your breath – creating a resound mind-body connection.

Pain Relief

Pain both acute and chronic can take a toll on our body and affect the quality of our lives.

At Beaverton Physiotherapy our therapists are sensitive to your needs and pain, so we listen to your concerns. We conduct a detailed assessment where we find the true cause of the pain and treat you accordingly, being careful not to exacerbate your symptoms.

Once the pain has settled we then continue to educate about prevention of future pain and provide you with specific self management tools.

Taping/Bracing

Benefits of bracing and taping:

  • Provide support

  • Stabilise an injury

  • Reduce swelling

  • Lessen pain

  • Improve performance in athletes 

  • Facilitate normal muscle movement

  • Encourage proper posture pattern

 Taping and bracing provides much needed support to unstable or uneven joints.  A brace/tape can help support an injured area or assist with proper joint alignment by gently restricting the range of movement in unstable joints. The brace/tape 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.
