Advanced Course – Spinal and Peripheral Manual Therapy Treatment Techniques

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. This two-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 depth problem-solving and refinement of technique for this Mobilization With Movement approach. This will also prepare those interested in taking the Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam.

  • PT’s and PTA’s will receive 13 CEU’s for those licensed in the State of California.  For those attending who reside outside of CA, please see your state governing body for reciprocity.  All forms needed to submit for CEU’s in your state can be found under the “courses” tab on the homepage.
  • This is a hands on course with a maximum ratio of student:instructor of 16:1
  • ATs will receive 13 CEUs from the NATA Board of Certification CEU Provider P3566
  • Certificate of attendance for 13 hours of instruction is always given
Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer

  • Demonstrate 3 shoulder MWM techniques for shoulder elevation impairment.
  • Demonstrate 3 manual techniques for the alleviation of cervicogenic headaches and dizziness
  • Integrate one combined shoulder MWM and cervical SNAG when presented with a persistent cervical / shoulder musculoskeletal dysfunctional pattern.
  • Cite at least 2 RCT studies that support cervical snags for headaches and dizziness
