McKenzie MDT: Advanced Extremities

This intensive two day course will focus on more advanced principles and practical application through clinical reasoning, problem solving, analysis of case studies, assessment and treatment of patients, and technique work.

The goal of this course is to build on prior knowledge gained from the introduction of extremities in Parts C and D to: 

  • Appropriately apply the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to patients with extremity problems;
  • Distinguish between the McKenzie Syndromes (Postural, Dysfunction, and Derangement) as applied to the extremities;
  • Provide appropriate management regimens for each of the syndromes;
  • Identify when force progressions and force alternatives are required for the resolution of symptoms using McKenzie's 'progression of forces' concept;
  • Design and apply appropriate MDT management for patients presenting with extremity symptoms to enable them to achieve their management goals.

Pre-requisite: Part D completion.
To best prepare for the Advanced Extremities course experience, those who completed the curriculum prior to the inclusion of extremities in Parts C and D are highly encouraged to audit C/D courses or read the textbook, The Human Extremities: Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, before attending.
