Terri Hallett & David Grossmann Achieve McKenzie Certification

Fauquier Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Announces Two New Certifications

Fauquier Health Outpatient PMR department is proud to announce two more of our physical therapists have received their spine certification from the McKenzie Institute International. Terri Hallett, PT, DPT, cert. MDT and David Grossmann, PT, DPT, cert. MDT have achieved this distinction following many hours of postgraduate study in mechanical diagnosis and therapy, competencies, and an international credentialing examination provided by The McKenzie Institute International.

The McKenzie Method is a comprehensive approach for examination and treatment of the spine and extremity injuries. This unique method to assess and treat the spine is widely recommended as the first choice for common back and neck problems worldwide. It is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education. The method is widely supported in the international literature as a research proven methodology. “Research has shown that the initial McKenzie assessment procedures to be as reliable as costly diagnostic imaging (i.e., x-rays, MRIs) to determine the source of the problem and quickly identify responders and non-responders.” www.mckenziemdt.org

Dr. Hallett and Dr. Grossmann join two of our other physical therapists who are also McKenzie certified and an entire team of experienced physical therapists who are dedicated to providing evidence based spine rehabilitation to our patients. It is quite a testament to our hospital’s commitment to quality top notch spine care that we can testify that we have four physical therapists who are McKenzie certified. Fauquier Health Outpatient PMR is committed to providing excellent up to date care and getting our patients back to doing the things they love as quickly as possible. Congratulations to Dr. Hallett and Dr. Grossmann.
