Unique to the MDT Method, the process begins with a thorough history and testing of movements to identify distinct patterns of pain responses that are: reproducible, objective, reliable, and reflect the characteristics of the underlying pain generator. Most patients who do respond favorably to MDT can successfully treat themselves and minimize the number of visits to the clinic.
