Reviews

Student Reviews & Testimonials

The Mulligan Concept is an outstanding paradigm to integrate into your practice as an athletic trainer. The courses and techniques not only improve your direct patient-care skill set, but also improve your clinical reasoning, decision-making, and communication skills. The techniques are simple to implement in practice and will produce immediate improvements across the gamut of injuries and patient presentations we see as athletic trainers. Practitioners who implement the Mulligan Concept into their clinical evaluations, acute care, and rehabilitation programs will experience significant improvement in their clinical practice. 

Don Reordan has outstanding knowledge of, and experience using, the Mulligan Concept . He is able to translate his expert knowledge and clinical reasoning in a manner that is effective for both novice and expert learners. He also displays a genuine excitement and joy for teaching the Mulligan Concept , which creates a fun learning environment. I highly recommend taking Mulligan Concept courses from Don.
