Advanced Functional Examination & Treatment of the Pelvis – One Day, Vernon, CT
June 13, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
June 13, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Please join us for one of the exciting upcoming opportunities to learn ADVANCED Functional Examination and Treatment Techniques of the Pelvis with International Mulligan Instructor Mark Oliver!
Over the last 25 years, Mark has developed a system of analysis and treatment based on Brian Mulligan’s Mobilization with Movement principles that greatly simplifies and clarifies examination and treatment of pelvic dysfunction. Research projects are now underway in a number of countries to evaluate the new approach.
Certificate of attendance is provided for 6.5 hours of Continuing Education (CE) credits
**NEW ADVANCED PELVIS COURSE**
Advanced Functional Examination & Treatment of the Pelvis – One Day
For participants who have previously attended Mark’s 2 Day Functional Examination & Treatment of the Pelvis course, this is an exciting opportunity to be part of a limited enrollment class to fine tune practical skills, work though case studies demonstrating integration of MWM with other treatment methods, and learn elements of the functional exercise approach that Mark has developed for pelvic dysfunction and pelvic girdle pain.
There will be ample opportunity to ask specific questions, review any difficulties with existing techniques, and for participants to share their own innovations with the group.
Objectives for the Advanced Functional Examination and Treatment of the Pelvis using Mobilization With Movement course
At the completion of this course participants should:
- Have a clear understanding of the key factors in management of pelvic dysfunction
- Have a clear understanding of the consequences of failed load transfer through the pelvis
- Be able to effectively identify pelvic dysfunction
- Be able to accurately locate the joint plane of the SIJ in weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing positions
- Be highly proficient in performing pelvis MWM techniques directed at the SIJ
- Be highly proficient in performing of pelvis MWM techniques directed at the pubic symphysis
- Be able to integrate appropriate facilitation strategies to “normalize” neurophysiological inputs and outputs and maximize the effectiveness of pelvis MWMs
- Be able to integrate pelvis MWM techniques into advanced functional exercise techniques
- Have an advanced level of clinical reasoning to effectively prioritize and progress treatment for pelvic dysfunction and pelvic girdle pain
- Be able to perform new MWM techniques for the lumbar spine and hip region to complement the pelvis MWM interventions
- Have an advanced understanding of pregnancy and post pregnancy related issues and how to address them using a variety of strategies including pelvis MWMs
- Have an advanced level of understanding of pregnancy and post pregnancy related issues and the appropriate use a variety of interventions including pelvis MWMs
- Be able to develop appropriate functional exercise strategies to prepare the patient for “conventional “ exercise
- Be aware of new developments in the integration of MWM into sports and activity specific exercise
- Be able to identify common causative and aggravating factors in the development of pelvic dysfunction and institute an appropriate management plan.

He has developed new methods of evaluation and treatment for sacroiliac joint (SIJ), pubic symphysis (PS) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders utilizing the Mulligan Concept and has conducted more than 100 lectures and clinical workshops on these subjects in Australia and Internationally.
In 2009, Mark was presented an Australian Physiotherapy Association (WA) award for contribution to physiotherapy education “An award presented to an APA member who has made an outstanding contribution to physiotherapy education”. He has written five textbook chapters and published in peer reviewed journals. Together with Jill McDowell, a fellow Mulligan Concept teacher, he is currently writing two textbooks and completing two papers on the Mulligan Concept in relation to pelvic and orofascial disorders. He is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, a titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia) and a member of the Mulligan Concept Teachers Association.
