Course: The Mulligan Concept: Brian Mulligan Examination and Treatment for Upper Quadrant
This course is appropriate for AHPRA registered physiotherapists and other suitably qualified/experienced health professionals
(such as AHPRA registered chiropractors and osteopaths)*
This two-day course presents the Mulligan Concept approach in manual therapy for the cervical and upper thoracic spine as well as for the upper extremity. The course is designed to give participants a thorough and in depth coverage of the Mobilisation with Movement approach for the upper quarter. This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan FNZSP (Hon), Dip. M.T. from Wellington, New Zealand. This simple yet effective manual therapy approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint "repositioning" techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.
The Mulligan Concept of examination and treatment is one of the most popular approaches used in physiotherapy treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It is easy to learn and can be quickly integrated into existing examination and treatment models. This course will assist physiotherapists to identify, evaluate and treat joint and related neuromotor dysfunction within a framework of clinical reasoning.
