Description

Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques For Upper Quarter

This two-day course will present the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Cervical and Thoracic spine as well as for the upper 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 upper 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 manual components of Mobilization With Movement for the treatment of upper quarter.
  • Demonstrate 3 shoulder MWM techniques for shoulder elevation impairment.
  • Demonstrate 2 elbow MWM techniques for loss of motion and tennis elbow.
  • List 2 indications for wrist/hand taping procedures for the proximal row of carpals and the metacarpals to reinforce an MWM technique.
  • Demonstrate 3 key variables that may need to be modified for pain-free effective MWM of the upper extremity, cervical and thoracic spine.
  • Demonstrate 3 manual upper cervical techniques used for the alleviation of cervicogenic headaches
  • Demonstrate 3 manual upper cervical techniques used for the alleviation of cervicogenic dizziness
  • Demonstrate central and unilateral manual SNAG techniques for the pain-free improvement of cervical and thoracic ROM.
  • Cite at least 2 RCT studies that support cervical snags for headaches and dizziness
  • Cite at least 2 RCT studies that support the MWM approach to Tennis elbow
  • Integrate one combined shoulder MWM and cervical SNAG when presented with a persistent cervical / shoulder musculoskeletal dysfunctional pattern.
