Event Description

This two-day course presents the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Cervical and Thoracic spine as well as for the upper extremity Peripheral joints . It includes lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants a thorough and in depth coverage of the Mobilization With Movement approach for the upper quarter.

Aimed at the frontline practitioner, the Mulligan Concept is a series of instantaneous and pain-free manual therapy techniques that allow assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders to provide symptom and functional modification. Mulligan Concept courses provide clinically-directed education in:

•             Hands-on techniques

•             Self-treatment and self-management strategies

•             Taping and home taping techniques

These interventions shall be underpinned by sound clinical reasoning in the application of Mobilisation with Movement on patients. The current evidence base for the use of the Mulligan Concept will be considered, this will give participants a thorough and in-depth knowledge of the Mobilisation with Movement approach.
