The McKenzie Institute USA has compiled this Directory of practitioners
in the United States who have attained one of two levels of MDT Certification:
in the McKenzie Method of
Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy as a courtesy for health care providers
and patients seeking McKenzie MDT adequately trained
- Credentialing Certificate or
- Diploma Certificate
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
Diagnosis and Therapy.
Once Credentialed in MDT, attainment of
the Diploma indicates that the practitioner has met additional requirements
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.
