Brian Mulligan Examination and Treatment for Upper Quadrant
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. 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. This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan FNZSP (Hon), Dip. M.T. from Wellington, New Zealand. 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.
Completing this course will enable you to:
- Understanding of the Scandinavian concept of joint mobilisation and be able to apply mobilisation techniques using these principles.
- Understanding of the Mulligan concept of mobilisation with movement and the clinical reasoning process it is based on.
- Understanding of the “Pain Release Phenomenon” (PRP) concept and be able to perform PRP techniques to structures of the upper limbs and cervical spine
