The McKenzie Institute USA has compiled this Directory of practitioners in the United States who have attained one of two levels of MDT Certification:

  1. Credentialing Certificate or
  2. Diploma Certificate
in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy as a courtesy for health care providers and patients seeking McKenzie MDT adequately trained practitioners.*

It is not advisable for the patient or the practitioner to discuss or dispense treatment recommendations over the telephone or email. The contact information is provided for the purpose of verification of certified MDT practitioners and arranging an office visit for an appropriate and complete evaluation of the patient with that practitioner.

Beyond documenting completion of the requirements listed below, The McKenzie Institute makes no representation as to the overall qualifications or competence of those listed. The Institute does not recommend or endorse the services of those listed.

Attainment of the Credentialing Certificate indicates that the practitioner has met predetermined requirements established by The McKenzie Institute International and the Board of Directors of The McKenzie Institute USA. This would include having completed a four-part series of post-graduate courses and passing a written and practical Credentialing Examination recognizing basic competency in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy.

Once Credentialed in MDT, attainment of the Diploma indicates that the practitioner has met additional requirements established by The McKenzie Institute International, including attending a 360-hour clinical residency training program, and passing advanced written and practical examinations. Attainment of the Diploma in MDT is recognition of achievement to the highest level in The McKenzie Institute post-graduate educational program and excellence in the practical application of the McKenzie Method.

Additionally, effective January 1, 2006, all certified MDT practitioners will be required to maintain continuing education through Institute approved programs to better insure the continuance of a high level of knowledge and skill in the application of MDT to remain active on the referral directory.

*We expect all practitioners to be responsible in reviewing his or her scope of practice, state practice act, and other applicable state laws or regulations of their profession to determine to what extent they can utilize certain aspects of MDT in his or her jurisdiction. Patients should also be aware that some states will require a prescription for physical therapy services from a physician.
