Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques for Lower Quarter

This manual therapy course will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants a thorough and in depth coverage of the Mobilization with Movement approach for 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 with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.
