FAQS

The McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is an internationally researched and acclaimed system of assessment and management for spinal and extremity musculoskeletal disorders developed by New Zealand Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. It has been widely used all over the world for more than 60 years.

Clinicians trained in the MDT system are able to assess and classify all complaints  of the musculoskeletal system. That means that if a problem is coming from the spine, extremity joints, muscles or tendons, then a MDT evaluation is appropriate. An MDT clinician will be able to identiy if MDT is indicated, what management strategy is best, and outline a predicted recovery pathway.

A key feature of the method is the initial assessment – a safe and reliable format to reach an accurate classification and only then develop the appropriate management plan, taking into account all the various factors that can influence the patient’s experience of pain. Expensive tests such as MRI’s are often unnecessary.

MDT is a comprehensive assessment and management approach based on sound and logical principles that focuses on the patient and their potential to self-manage and recover their previous level of function.

Yes, most of the time we can submit directly to your insurance depending on your insurer and your policy.

Most private / work insurance companies allow us to direct bill on your behalf but in order, for us to do this you need to fill out paperwork that allows us to do this

However, everyone’s insurance is different with regards to direct billing. This is based on your employer and their arrangements with the insurance company. Not everyone with the same insurance provider has the same coverage or the same rules with regards to direct billing. For example, we may be able to provide direct billing for Sunlife for one person but not another due to coverage difference.

Usually we are able to at the very least submit your session to your insurance and they will reimburse you. This will still require you to pay after your treatment. Let us know if you have any questions. Please see our policy.
