Advanced Course – Follow-up of Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques
This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T. from Wellington, New Zealand. This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain. This two-day Follow Up course will review and fine tune the participants skill level with the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the whole body.

Description

Advanced Course – Follow-up of Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques

This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T. from Wellington, New Zealand. This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain. This two-day Follow Up course will review and fine tune the participants skill level with the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the whole body.

In addition, it will provide instruction in the use of Pain Release Phenomenon techniques and compression techniques. It will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants an opportunity for depth problem-solving and refinement of technique for this Mobilization With Movement approach. This will also prepare those interested in taking the Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam.

PRO CERT 12 CCUs: State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) for those clinicians that hold license in: Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho,  Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming
