Host a Mulligan Concept™ Manual Therapy Course

If you’re looking to host a Mobilization With Movement™ / Mulligan Concept™ Manual Therapy Course, look no further. We offer you the chance to host our courses locally. Bring education to your clinic. Save time, money, and travel!

Please complete the form below and we will get back to you about this exciting opportunity.

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in the Mulligan Concept ®!  We are definitely interested in new host sites and would love to learn more about your facility.

In general, a Mulligan course has 20-30 participants, but can have as few as 12 and as many as 400, depending on the situation.  If there are greater than 30 participants, we would bring multiple instructors.  We need a minimum of 1 table for every 3 participants, with room to move around and practice.  Tables can be plinths, massage tables, high low tables, or even regular sturdy tables if necessary.

Many courses start with a few participants from the clinic and get filled by advertising the course to the public on our website.  We also offer private courses if you have enough internal participants to fill a course.

Please see the following document for detailed information on all our courses. The Lower Quarter or the Upper Quarter courses are equally good places to start your mobilization with movement training.  Occasionally we offer an Introductory course.  This is not required and simply draws material from the Upper Quarter and Lower Quarter courses to offer an introductory weekend for those who request it.

A host receives:

  • A Free registration slot for the 10th, 20th, and 30th, registration for each course (valued at $525 each = $1575 potential savings in registration fees)
  • Free Mulligan 7th edition book, package of manual therapy contact pads, and MWM mobilization belt for each free registration slot
  • Save on travel, lodging, food and other expenses for each employee by hosting a course at your facility (potential savings of approximately $800 per employee)
  • Social Media marketing templates to help facilitate promotion of the course
  • Organizations who choose to host the Upper Quadrant, Lower Quadrant, and Advanced courses receive free lifetime access to the MWMusa tutorial library of over 100 video tutorials. Total Value of $998!!!!

Potential “Per Employee” Savings for each course of ……$1,824!!!

The core curriculum of Mulligan Concept courses in the USA are the Upper Quarter, Lower Quarter and the Advanced Course.  Each of these courses consists of 13 hours of instruction over two days. Scheduling of the days and times may be flexible but typically is two weekend days from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The 2 Day Upper Quarter Course will present the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Cervical and Thoracic spine as well as for the upper extremity. It 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 Upper Quarter including headaches, tennis elbow, as well as a number of other common clinical presentations.

The 2 Day Lower Quarter Course will present the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint as well as for the lower extremity. It 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 including a variety of common clinical presentations throughout the region.

The 2 Day Advanced Course will review and fine tune the participants skill level with the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the whole body. In addition, it will provide instruction in the use of Pain Release Phenomenon techniques and compression techniques. It will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants an opportunity for in-depth problem-solving, refinement and advancement of the techniques in this approach. This will also prepare those who are interested in taking the Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam.

The Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam Program (CMP) is available for those practitioners (PT, ATC, Osteopaths and Chiropractors) who have completed the UQ, LQ and Advanced courses and wish to pursue further recognition and marketing of their competence in the Mulligan Concept. Those passing the written and practical CMP exams will be awarded the title of Certified Mulligan Practitioner and listed by geographical location on the Mulligan Concept website: www.bmulligan.com. More info on the CMP program can be found at https://mwmusa.com/certified-mulligan-practitioner-exam/

The 2 Day Advanced Course is usually combined into a 3 Day weekend format with the Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam given on the third day.
