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 & SIJ 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.

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.
