Chip is certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy of the Spine by the McKenzie Institute. The institute is internationally recognized and McKenzie therapists are trained to understand and classify mechanical issues within the spine or extremities and to implement the appropriate mechanical treatment plan to help remedy the problem. A main goal of a McKenzie therapist is to educate the patient and to have him or her play an active role in the rehabilitation process, promoting independence and functional restoration. Chip has been using this method to help him when treating patients with spine ailments with related extremity disorders and also with extremity injuries not related to the spine.
