    Course Overview

    McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) is an evidence based system of assessment, classification, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. Its comprehensive framework allows a clinician to screen, categorize, apply tailored treatment and a preventative program for each patient. This 26.0-hour course presents the theoretical aspects and concepts of MDT, as applied in the examination and treatment of patients with complaints of low back and related referred pain. 

    The first 5.0 hours of the course is completed as an online Distance Learning Component*. The remaining 21.0 hours are with an Instructor at a teaching venue. 

    Through lectures and patient demonstrations the derangement, dysfunction and postural syndromes are described in detail and appropriate treatment plans are outlined with emphasis on the use of patient self-treatment procedures.

    The clinical efficacy and limitations of the McKenzie approach as applied to the lumbar spine are illustrated by patient demonstrations.

    Course Goals

    Following attentive participation in, and completion of, this course will provide participants with the introductory knowledge, basic skills and abilities to begin to:

    1. Appropriately apply the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to patients with lumbar spine problems.
    2. Distinguish between the McKenzie syndromes (derangement, dysfunction, postural) and other spinal conditions and provide appropriate management regimens for each of the McKenzie syndromes.
    3. Identify when the application of external forces is required for the resolution of symptoms using McKenzie’s concept of progression of forces.
    4. Assist patients to design and apply the therapeutic processes to achieve management goals.

    *Online Component
    The 5.0 hour online component will be assigned a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the classroom session and must be completed prior to attending the classroom component. Upon registration you will be emailed the information necessary to complete the online hours.
