Description

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 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.

Objectives

Learning Objectives

By the end of the course the participant will be able to accurately:

  • List 3 key components of Mobilization With Movement for the treatment of lower quarter.
  • Demonstrate 3 ankle MWM techniques for ankle ROM impairment.
  • Demonstrate 2 knee MWM techniques for ROM impairment.
  • Demonstrate 3 hip MWM techniques for ROM impairment.
  • List 2 indications for ankle and knee taping procedures to reinforce MWM techniques.
  • Demonstrate 3 key variables that may need to be modified for pain-free effective MWM of the lower extremity, SI jt and lumbar spine.
  • Demonstrate 3 manual techniques for the alleviation straight leg raise pain.
  • Demonstrate 2 manual techniques for the alleviation of SI jt pain.
  • Demonstrate central and unilateral manual SNAG techniques for the pain-free improvement of lumbar ROM.
  • Cite at least 2 RCT studies that support ankle sprain MWM and taping.
  • Cite at least 1 RCT studies that support the MWM approach to dorsiflexion loss of the ankle.
  • integrate a combined proximal fibula AP MWM WITH a distal fibula AP MWM technique while the patient performs a squatting activity pain-free.
