Part C: Advanced Course: Clinical Reasoning and Pain Release Phenomenon

26th – 27th November 2020

Venue: London Road Community Hospital, Derby

Lecturer: Thomas GC Mitchell, BSc (Hons) MSc MCTA

Ref. 2723


A two-day advanced course to review and fine-tune the participant’s skill level with the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the whole body. In addition, instruction in the use of Pain Release Phenomenon techniques and compression techniques will be presented.

This course is vital in preparing those interested in taking the Certified Mulligan Practitioner Exam.


Who is this course suitable for?

For delegates who have completed Part A & Part B.


Course Outline:

Aimed at the frontline practitioner, the Mulligan Concept is a series of instantaneous and pain-free manual therapy techniques to allow assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders to provide symptom and functional modification. Mulligan Concept courses provide clinically-directed education in:

  • hands-on techniques
  • self-treatment and self-management strategies
  • taping and home taping techniques


These interventions shall be underpinned by sound clinical reasoning in the application of Mobilisation with Movement on patients. Current rationalisation of the evidence base for the use of the Mulligan Concept and manual therapy will be considered to facilitate participants a thorough and in-depth coverage of the Mobilisation with Movement approach.


Course objectives:

On completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe the underpinning theory of NAG's, SNAG's and Mobilisations with Movement (MWM's).
  • Demonstrate and justify the use of spinal NAG's and SNAG's in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.
  • Demonstrate and justify the use of peripheral MWM's for the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee and foot and ankle with reference to common musculoskeletal disorders
