McKenzie Approach

This approach is particularly effective for disc problems known as disc derangements and spinal dysfunction (areas of restriction).

This approach to spinal pain was developed by New Zealand physiotherapist Robyn McKenzie.

Exercises are emphasised which reduce the disc derangement or relieve the spinal restriction. Patients are taught the exercises to do at home which can be used also to manage any recurrences.
