Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques For Lower Quarter
This two-day course will present the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Lumbar Spine, Sacroiliac complex, as well as for the lower extremity.
This two-day course will present the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint as well as for the lower extremity. It will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants a thorough and in depth coverage of the Mobilization With Movement approach for the lower quarter. 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.
Wear loose, comfortable lab clothes. Bring mobilization belts, mobilization pads, if available.
