Can you imagine a chiropractor and they touch to visit not the back? The McKenzie method, this is possible and indeed recommended. If you think it sounds weird the most remarkable is that there is a the best studied low back pain (LBP) treatments and also one of the methods with one of the best results as shown by medical research. It is a method of treatment, the both simple as is possible in your own home. It requires no equipment or it requires strength and flexibility.
McKenzie is a New Zealand physical therapist, a method in the most unusual revealed way. He told a patient lying on his bench while he went away to take a call. Found when he returned, he of the patients had not set the Bank normally, but instead was pushed lie down face with the back of the back to the rear. The patient said he felt the best he felt in weeks had. The discovery was, which started the development of the McKenzie method, which now world’s practice and experience adopted chiropractors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, physiotherapist, doctors and other areas of manual therapy, the problems related to spinal function.
McKenzie discovered that be possible split to people with LBP in three sub-groups.
Derangement – the most common explanation for low back pain. Its the idea that time warp joints after repeated movements of the spine. If you think one of the joints in the back for two books with half inflated balloon between them. The books would be the bones (vertebrae) of the spine and the balloon would be the flexible disc shock absorbing. If you then front bend the part of the rolls forward each other are closer and the parts on the back are further apart. When we a page of balloons squash by bringing together the ends of the other side of the bubble is larger and squeezes between the books. This is the idea behind a herniated disc or slipped disc. With this type of problem the solution is McKenzie exercises do this exercises in the opposite direction, which causes the pain counter.Dysfunction – this is if there is scar tissue, or the like stop the spine joint move as it should be. It is much less common than derangement between five and 20% of cases occur. The pain is felt, if you get the point, which is the area that is. With dysfunction, the treatment is the opposite of derangement. The exercises are likely to cause discomfort/pain, as you would expect a tight/restricted area extend.Posing syndrome is helping this an unimportant subgroup. After some time of being in the situation with bad posture suffer people within this subgroup of LBP. The solution is simple, these bad attitude avoid position by things like sit, sleep and change working positions.
After reading the above 3 sub-groups, which probably occurred it you, for a subgroup, that is to do exercises that cause the opposite of the movements, the pain treatment and a further subgroup you do exercises with movements, causing the pain. Therefore, it is so important to diagnose what is your problem, to make a treatment plan, which improved more deteriorated that as your condition properly.
McKenzie has written quite a few books and there is even a book directly to the patient to treat their own back. If you look at Amazon for McKenzie you should be able to find them.
Here in Spain, it is a relatively unknown technique. It’s a real shame given its effectiveness and its relative simplicity. As to receive faster chiropractor in Madrid as I in my treatment combined with spinal manipulation, and to incorporate more longer lasting results. I’ve found that if the spinal joints work they are better than due to a manipulation (either with the hand, activator, or Arthrostim) more receptive for McKenzie exercises to maintain or improve on this feature.
I have exercises only really a disadvantage to include McKenzie in my treatments. Some patients are not very good to do prescribed exercises either because of the time, effort or convince because I can not them the value of them. Before becoming a chiropractor this was also my approach to exercises/stretches. At the time it seemed much easier, walk all right once in a while to a chiropractor, keep, rather than to do the exercises and stretches, which I was given. When my patients in this category fall I, other treatment options for called think are.
