What is Physiotherapy & How it Treats Muscle Pain

Surgery, injury or muscle pain from sleeping or driving, can make it difficult to get back to normal. Physiotherapy is a ‘whole-body’ science-based treatment using exercise, movement, manual therapy and education. This form of healing allows the patient to be a part of their own treatment, through awareness and involvement. This treatment helps patients to manage their symptoms and reduce dependency on medical intervention.

What is the McKenzie Institute?

Mackenzie institue logo - physio pain management

In the 1950s, world-renowned expert physiotherapist Robin McKenzie developed a reliable assessment process for all musculoskeletal problems. Finally, after 40 years of research and development, this exercise-based approach to assessment, diagnosis and treatment was named the McKenzie Method. This process encourages the bodies natural healing and repair. In 1982, Robin founded The McKenzie Institute, a non-profit focused on education and research with 28 branches across the world. 

The McKenzie Method has 4 steps including assessment, classification, treatment and prevention. Once you get an  assessment by a certified clinician, you will get a prescription for specific products, exercises and advice. The McKenzie products, including lumbar or cervical rolls, are quality products designed specifically to treat certain areas and issues.
