The McKenzie Method
We’re on a mission to rid the world of back and related pains.
Over 60 years ago, Robin McKenzie observed an accidental treatment breakthrough. He began studying what he had seen and was able to successfully relieve and cure thousands of patients with the McKenzie Method®.
He set out to share his knowledge with the world, and after much perseverance his method became accepted by medical professionals. He changed the way clinicians treat pain but more notably, he empowered patients to treat themselves with the McKenzie Method®.
The ‘Treat Your Own’ patient handbooks, have now been translated into over 20 languages and the McKenzie Method® is now a global brand, utilised by top athletes among others. Whilst in the process of developing his ‘Method’ Robin also came to realise that correct spinal supports were “vital for my patients, if they were to remain pain free”. The Original McKenzie® range of lumbar supports, which complement the exercises in the books, are proven to assist in postural management and alleviate pain. They are the only lumbar supports approved for use with the McKenzie Method ®
In 1983, Robin also founded the McKenzie Institute International®, to ensure the orderly development of education and research into the methods he had devised. This not-for-profit organisation headquartered in New Zealand, has 28 branches throughout the world and teaches its stringent postgraduate educational programme to medical professionals and physiotherapists in a further 12 countries.
