Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques For Lower Quadrant

This two-day course will present the Mulligan Concept approach to manual therapy for the foot, ankle, knee, hip,  lumbar spine, and sacroiliac joint. The course will include lectures, patient demonstrations, and ample lab time to help participants successfully practice and apply Mobilization With Movement techniques throughout 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 using pain-free manual therapy forces to help change pain and restore function.

  • Develop and practice the manual therapy handling skills necessary to successfully apply and integrate MWM techniques into daily clinical practice.
