Most people alleviate their own pain by performing the basic McKenzie exercises. Below are some detailed instructions and video clips of how to perform the basic McKenzie exercises.
To enhance your self-management, you may benefit from a McKenzie lumbar or cervical roll, or McKenzie's self-help books. These books have helped millions of people worldwide to treat, relieve and prevent their lower back pain and neck pain. International scientific studies have proven that the information and exercises described in these books get positive and lasting results.
Some people need professional assistance to get the best results. If you cannot alleviate the pain on your own, don’t conclude that McKenzie techniques are ineffective for you. If trying the basic McKenzie exercises on your own does not work, consult a Certified McKenzie Clinician for help.
