This is a presentation of Brian Mulligan’s Mobilization with Movement (MWM) approach to musculoskeletal problems in the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow. These manual therapy treatment techniques will be described and demonstrated by Brian Mulligan with Don Reordan and Julie Paolino of the Mulligan Concept Teachers Association. The course includes examples of MWM for differential diagnosis as well as treatment, home exercise techniques and taping. It covers possible treatment interventions for loss of finger, wrist or elbow motion, loss of supination/pronation and lateral elbow pain with gripping or wrist extension (tennis elbow). The guidelines and indications necessary to apply the techniques are presented in a verbal and visual format. The intended result is immediate enhancement of assessment and treatment skills applicable to the upper extremity joints utilizing Mobilization with Movement techniques.
