Advanced Course – 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 Advanced course will review and fine tune the participants skill level with the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the whole body.

This two-day Advanced 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.

NOTE: Those who sign up for the Advanced Course and CMP Exam in the same weekend will be given a $50 discount at checkout!
