Mulligan Concept™ Manual Therapy Upper Quadrant Course

What Is Covered During the Course

In Mobilization With Movement™ USA’s Mulligan Concept™ Manual Therapy Upper Quadrant Course, we provide a comprehensive and in-depth approach to manual therapy for the cervical and thoracic spines in addition to the upper extremity. This two-day course includes all-inclusive lectures, patient demonstrations, and substantial lab time to offer the participants a comprehensive overview of the Mobilization With Movement™ process for the upper quarter. This custom approach to manual therapy was created by Brian Mulligan. It is one of the simplest yet most effective approaches to manual therapy for musculoskeletal disorders. The Mulligan technique is a simple and practical method of addressing musculoskeletal disorders with painless manual therapy forces that can restore pain-free, functional movement.
