Course Overview
This 28.0 hour, four day course will review and advance the theory and practical application of 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. In addition, the theory and practical application of MDT for lower extremity musculoskeletal disorders is presented (hip, knee, ankle/foot).

Problem solving, reflective learning and clinical reasoning activities are utilized to refine the assessment, classification, differential diagnosis and management of patient’s presenting with symptoms related to the lumbar spine. Practical sessions are utilized to further develop skills in the application of both self-treatment and clinician procedures.

Lecturespatient assessments and practical sessions are utilized to demonstrate the characteristics and management of the syndromes as they present in the lower extremities.

Course Goals
Following attentive participation and completion, this course will provide participants with the intermediate knowledge, skills, and abilities to:

  1. Identify and discuss common problems encountered in the application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy for the lumbar spine.
  2. Analyze and discuss the MDT assessment and how it assists with patient classification.
  3. Discuss the application of clinician forces, and how they fit with McKenzie’s ‘Progression of Forces’ concept.
  4. To perform clinician techniques for the lumbar spine at an advanced level and to identify problems with their application.
  5. Analyze case studies of patients presenting with lumbar spine symptoms and determine classification.
  6. Describe and discuss the current evidence base for the use of MDT for lower limb musculoskeletal disorders.
  7. Describe the characteristics of Derangement, Dysfunction and Postural syndromes as they present in lower extremity musculoskeletal disorders.
  8. Perform MDT assessments for lower extremity musculoskeletal disorders and determine the presence of McKenzie syndromes.
  9. Design appropriate management programs for patients who present with Derangement, Dysfunction and Postural syndromes in the lower extremity. Case studies of patients presenting with lower limb symptoms will be analyzed to determine their classification.
