This examination system was developed by Robin McKenzie to evaluate spinal problems. McKenzie classifies spinal problems into one of three syndromes:
  • Postural
  • Dysfunction
  • Derangement
Centralization and Peripheralization are important concepts in this system.

The examination techniques are:

  • Forward Bending
  • Backward Bending
  • Side Gliding
