What is the McKenzie Method?
The goal for Tillman Physical Therapy is to get patients to be independent in their own care and gain understanding of both good and bad behaviors. A bad habit beats you up over time or pressure over time wins.
We achieve this through the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT). A proven worldwide method for assessment and treatment of both spinal and extremity pain for more than three decades.
MDT clinicians are trained to assess and diagnose all areas of the musculoskeletal system using the philosophy of active patient involvement and education creating patient future independence in self management of back, neck and extremity problems.
VRT is a conservative approach to treating dizziness and balance difficulties.
What is it?
Is the problem that you do not fit in your own world?
To begin feeling better and correcting posture start with fixing how you sit in your car and the two places you sit the most (your computer desk at work and your dining chairs at home). This is 50% of the equation for you to address these common injuries.
People that are 5,4 and shorter lean forward because their chair is too big causing the head to lean forward leading to:
Mid and Low back pain
People 6'0 and taller sit in chairs too small causing causing extreme pressure in the lower lumbar region. This puts the knees higher than the hips requiring bending forward from the bottom up, leading to:
Tight hip Flexion
Lumbar pain causing herniated lower disc
