Dr. Joe Downing


Patient-centered care is the bedrock of our practice. Through a reliable & valid method of examination called The McKenzie Method (MDT), our goal is to help you feel better, move better, and live better. Our practice philosophy is to use our experience & extensive education to empower our patients to be in control of their condition.


Effective patient management through the McKenzie Method does not use medication, heat, cold, ultrasound, or surgery but rather teaches the patients to take an active role in their care. Our standardized process will provide a thorough examination consisting of four primary steps: assessment, classification, treatment, and prevention. We do not simply want to treat patients, rather, our purpose is to help them achieve the desired outcome. We believe in communicating this process to our patients, resulting in healthcare delivery that is clear & transparent. Consequently, patients are capable of effective self-management of their condition.
