Studies by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1998-2006 site that 70-80% of all Workers Compensation cost are from musculoskeletal injuries. Of these injuries, the most common reason for disability in the workplace is low back pain and injury. Musculoskeletal / orthopedic pain is a highly prevalent and very expensive health dilemma. But by using a paradigm called Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (aka McKenzie Method) it is now possible to identify patients whose pain is rapidly reversible, meaning it can often be eliminated quickly with return to full function using a patient specific direction of simple, yet precise, end range exercises. Patients with extremity or spine related injuries have been found to be rapidly reversible 74-87% of the time when assessed by a certified MDT therapist. If patients are never accessed in this way, this reversibility remains undiscovered and these patients commonly undergo potentially unnecessary surgery.

The use of expensive and often ineffective medical and conservative interventions for spinal care is consistently the norm. The utilization of spinal surgery is on the decline throughout the world; however, it is on the rise in the United States. Less than 3% of all spinal problems require surgery with less than 5% of all spinal conditions being inflammatory dominate, and yet medical care consistently involves the use of surgery, NSAID’s, steroids and numerous injection types. Opioids, anti-depressants and muscle relaxants offer short-term relief at best and when compared to placebo are often only comparable. Pain management procedures are based upon unreliable assessments, with the scientific evidence lacking in support for these treatments for acute and chronic low back pain. Exercise therapy has been shown in the literature to be beneficial in the treatment of acute and chronic neck and low back pain with spinal manipulation offering short-term relief only. However, if examined using a reliable and valid assessment (as exampled by Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy), 75% of spinal injured patients display one direction and load of movement that is more beneficial than all others, shortening the length of necessary treatment and dramatically reducing recurrence and chronicity. The average duration of physical therapy for neck and low back pain is 15 visits nationwide. At Performance Physical Therapy our average is 7 visits.
