Richard Rosedale, PT, Accredited Instructor, McKenzie Institute International
This (26 hour) course, comprised of both an online component and 3 live course days, presents the theoretical
aspects and concepts of the McKenzie Method in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as applied in the examination
and treatment of patients with complaints of low back and related referred pain. 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 follow-up patient
Did you know that Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT), The McKenzie System, is now the most researched
musculoskeletal classification system for spinal pain and, in particular, the centralization phenomenon has now
caught the attention of many researchers outside those typically involved in the MDT system. Thirty eight studies
have documented prevalence rates of centralization and directional preference with a mean prevalence of 62% .
This means it is so common that every patient should be screened appropriately. The lowest prevalence rate (18%)
for centralization was reported by those therapists with no MDT training. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from
the MDT experts. This course will include an updated review of the exponential growth in evidence for MDT.
