This two-day seminar presents Brian Mulligan’s concepts of Mobilization with Movement as it applies to the cervical and upper thoracic spine and upper extremities. The course is designed for health care professionals licensed to perform joint mobilizations who wish to broaden their existing manual therapy skills for use within their defined scope of practice. It clearly outlines the indications for this new and simple approach to the application of manual therapy in clinical practice. Past Mulligan course feedback has indicated the need for a more detailed presentation of techniques along with the development of clinical reasoning skills. This seminar is designed to meet those needs.

This course will enable participants to learn the indications for this new and simple approach to manual therapy in clinical practice. Past Mulligan course feedback has indicated the need for a more detailed presentation of techniques along with the development of clinical reasoning skills. This seminar is designed to meet those needs. This course is one of four courses leading to qualifications as a Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP).

The efficacy of this approach can be quickly and easily ascertained in clinic. MWM skills will be learned and it is an expectation of this course that those therapists with a normal caseload will find an immediate improvement in outcome measures with patients with restricted and/or painful movement.

Learning Outcomes:
All participants will gain an understanding of Mulligan’s concept of mobilization with movement. The participant will have enhanced assessment skills when examining extremity and spinal joints. They will have the guidelines necessary to apply, when indicated, painless techniques joint function. As with all manual techniques, handling skills are paramount and, at the end of the program, the true professional will be able to further develop this new field of mobilization with movement. They will learn taping techniques to maintain correction of functional movement patterns. The most important outcome is that patients will benefit from this new approach.
