Tim-CzarneckiChatham Orthopaedic Associates is proud to announce that physical therapist Tim Czarnecki recently earned MDT Certification from The McKenzie Institute® USA Center for Postgraduate Study in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT).

Physical therapists must complete a series of advanced postgraduate courses to become certified practitioners of the McKenzie Method® of MDT, an evidence-based patient management system proven to eliminate back, neck, and extremity pain in fewer visits compared to traditional treatment.

The key distinction is its initial assessment component — a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis that will guide an appropriate treatment plan. Rarely are expensive tests required, as Certified MDT clinicians have a valid indicator to know right away whether — and how — the direction-specific exercise treatment will work for each patient.

Before receiving his MDT Certification, Tim earned his Bachelor of Arts in Sports Science from Albion College and his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Marymount University. He joined the team at Chatham Orthopaedic Associates in 2015.
