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.

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.

Reviews

Participant Reviews & Testimonials

“I treat mostly upper extremity disorders and I really liked how I am able to incorporate the Mobilization with Movement Concept with my patients. Effective, immediate result, safe techniques. The course was great thank you!”
-Susan G. OTR

“I really enjoyed this course. Changed the way I view manual therapy and its applications for my clinic practice.  Understanding how to use MWM during assessment, progressions, and clinical decision making gave me confidence to use this Concept everyday.”

~Elvin L. PT, DPT

“I have been looking for a post-graduate education series that was applicable to all my patients and affordable.  I found that with Mobilization with Movement.  This Concept can be implemented with almost everyone that I see.”

~Jeff H. PT, DPT, OCS
