This simple and often effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders using techniques for restoration of pain-free function and movement.
The course will provide the candidate with:
- A grounding in the application of MWM
- How MWM sits within modern clinical reasoning and pathways
- Establishing when, and when not to experiment with MWM
- Self-MWM to enable patient-empowerment in their management
This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan
This course is a brief introduction to the MULLIGAN CONCEPT™, and will equip clinicians with the ability to experiment with simple MWM techniques for various body sites.
Principles of the Mulligan Concept, including P.I.L.L. and C.R.O.C.K.S. will be described.
A highly practical course will equip candidates with refinements of their handling, ideas for treatment adjuncts and self-management strategies.
