Joel Laing, specialist physiotherapist in Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT)

Joel Laing has a Diploma in Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT or McKenzie Method) and is skilled in assessing and solving complex problems in the spine and extremities joints, with a focus on teaching you to self-manage your problem. He now consults from Absolute Health & Performance in the heart of the CBD (corner of Little Bourke/William St a 2 min walk from Flagstaff station), and Spine Smart in Malvern (corner of Tooronga Rd/High Street).

The vast majority of people will suffer from significant and ongoing symptoms in their life and yet fail to get better despite applying a variety of well-known treatments including Chiropractic, Osteopathy and conventional Physiotherapy.

The McKenzie Method offers a better way!

80-90% of patients respond with the McKenzie Method, and need on average just 4-5 consultations!

And those who need another path of management can be rapidly identified and guided onto the road to recovery with some other area.

The benefits of the McKenzie Approach at:

  • Our initial consultation is 45 mins (most clinics do 20-30 mins)
  • A thorough assessment means we give you an accurate diagnosis/classification, explain how you developed your problem, and outline what you need to do to resolve your pain and restore function
  • 80-90% of people respond and can be usually confirmed in your first session (so you can quickly determine if you will benefit)
  • Save time and money as you will not come to us for “maintenance” as you will learn how to ease your symptoms with specific exercises, and be able to prevent recurrences
  • The McKenzie Assessment process is superior, and has been shown by research to be at least as reliable at diagnosis painful disc than expensive imaging like MRI and CT scans

Joel’s Philosophy

“Every patient deserves to be taught about the nature of their own problem, and be given the tools to manage themselves so they can enjoy life free of pain.”
