The McKenzie Institute Australia
Tim Atkins, Cert MDT utilises the McKenzie Method at PHYSIOfirst Bayside.
The McKenzie Method® is a comprehensive and logical step-by-step process to evaluate the patient’s
problem quickly. This mechanical examination can “classify” most patient conditions by the level of pain or
limitation that results from certain movements or positions. A McKenzie assessment can eliminate the need
for expensive and/or invasive procedures.
