The MacKenzie Method

What is it?

A widely recognized, revolutionary approach to treating back and neck pain, the McKenzie Method is a comprehensive therapeutic program which uses a system of assessment, classification, and active patient involvement to diagnose conditions and prescribe treatment. PinnacleHealth Spine Centers are two of less than 30 Certified McKenzie Clinics in the United States.

Evaluation and Treatment

Following diagnosis, our highly trained McKenzie Method specialists prescribe and execute individualized treatment plans which involve extension exercises as well as specified movements and positions. The ultimate goal is to decrease pain, restore function, and enable patients to move toward self-treatment at home.

Where can I get it?

The MacKenzie Method rehabilitation program is available at Camp Hill Physical Therapy, PinnacleHealth's Neuroscience Rehab Center, and Community Campus Physical Therapy.

Other Forms of Physical Therapy

PinnacleHealth’s Helen M. Simpson Rehabilitation Hospital will help you return to home with a sense of independence. PinnacleHealth's Rehab Hospital offers both inpatient and outpatient services, depending on the patient's needs. In some cases, aquatic therapy is recommended, which is available at four PinnacleHealth locations. HomeCare is also available to those who need it.
