Reviews

Review / Testimonial

The Mulligan Concept is an outstanding paradigm to integrate into your practice as an athletic trainer. The courses and techniques not only improve your direct patient-care skill set, but also improve your clinical reasoning, decision-making, and communication skills. The techniques are simple to implement in practice and will produce immediate improvements across the gamut of injuries and patient presentations we see as athletic trainers. Practitoners who implement the Mulligan Concept into their clinical evaluations, acute care, and rehabilitation programs will experience significant improvement in their clinical practice.
