Assessment Forms

The official McKenzie Institute assessment forms for the Lumbar, Cervical and Thoracic spine and the Extremities are available for practitioners to download and use in their clinical practice. The use of the assessment forms is covered during the McKenzie Educational program however a document that provides instructions on how to complete the forms is available.

Copyright of the forms will remain with MII and the actual form itself must not be changed in any way, however it will be acceptable for a hospital, etc. to incorporate their logo or name at the top of the form and requisite format for patient identification. This option is for convenience; however, you may find this option more expensive than buying the pads from OPTP or the other Spinal Publications Limited agents who carry stock. We recommend that you download and save the forms to a PC to print on demand without having to be connected to the internet. If your printer has a duplex (2-sided) option that is ideal. You may also photocopy the forms, and again, you are free to make as many copies as necessary.

We strongly suggest you download these guidelines as provided by our International Director of Education, Richard Rosedale, PT, Dip. MDT. Download Guidelines for Forms (excluding Upper & Lower extremities)
