Broadway Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation’s Anne Bower recently earned Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy certification from The McKenzie Institute center for postgraduate study.
Physical therapists must complete a series of advanced postgraduate courses to become certified practitioners of the McKenzie Method, an evidence-based patient management system proven to eliminate back, neck and extremity pain in fewer visits compared to traditional treatment. The initial assessment provides a diagnosis that allows for an appropriate treatment plan and decreases the need for expensive tests, as clinicians have a valid indicator to know how direction-specific exercise treatment will work for each patient.
Bower joined Broadway Physical Therapy in 2009 and specializes in orthopedic conditions. For more information, or to make an appointment, call (503) 287-6636 or visit www.broadwaypt.net.
