The McKenzie Method of Physical Therapy

Many of our licensed physical therapists in Knoxville are certified in the renowned McKenzie Method. The McKenzie method is a system of musculoskeletal care that emphasizes patient empowerment by making sure patients are invested in their own PT at home as well as in the office.

The McKenzie Method is a comprehensive program that includes assessment, treatment and prevention of future injuries. It is useful for treating acute and chronic pain related to the discs of the spine in particular, though it is also effective for helping other orthopedic patients find relief from pain and lack of range of motion.

What can I expect during physical therapy?

Treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of your condition and developing a plan to help you build strength, flexibility and range of motion to improve your symptoms.

Depending on your condition and level of mobility, your physical therapist will use a range of treatment strategies and devices to help you feel and move better. Your physical therapist may use a combination of ice, heat, massage, ultrasound, exercise and other therapies to increase your blood flow and flexibility as well as reduce swelling and pain.
