This seminar is designed to meet those needs. This course will enable participants to learn the indications for this new and simple approach to manual therapy in clinical practice. Past Mulligan course feedback has indicated the need for a more detailed presentation of techniques along with the development of clinical reasoning skills. This seminar is designed to meet those needs. This course is one of four courses leading to qualifications as a Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP). The efficacy of this approach can be quickly and easily ascertained in clinic. MWM skills will be learned and it is an expectation of this course that those therapists with a normal caseload will find an immediate improvement in outcome measures with patients with restricted and/or painful movement. Learning Outcomes: All participants will gain an understanding of Mulligan's concept of mobilization with movement. The participant will have enhanced assessment skills when examining extremity and spinal joints. They will have the guidelines necessary to apply, when indicated, painless techniques joint function. As with all manual techniques, handling skills are paramount and, at the end of the program, the true professional will be able to further develop this new field of mobilization with movement. They will learn taping techniques to maintain correction of functional movement patterns. The most important outcome is that patients will benefit from this new approach. Learning Objectives: • Have an appreciation of the concept of the Mobilization with Movement approach. • Provide a thorough and in depth instruction and practice of the MWM techniques for the upper quarter • Develope the knowledge and manual skills to successfully apply and integrate the MWM tecniques • Integrate taping techniques with Mobilization with Movement • Understand the guidelines for safe and effective technique selection • Improve clinical outcomes. Behavioral Objectives: Day 1: • Provide informed consent by describing one Mulligan Concept of Mobilization with movement technique to a patient with a joint dysfunction. • Perform 1 Mulligan, MWM technique, with correct hand placement to improve ROM in a patient with pain and dysfunction in the wrist joint. • Apply one taping technique to maintain proper radiocarpal joint alignment following a MWM in a patient with wrist pain and dysfunction. • Apply 1 NAG technique with correct hand placement in a patient with multi-directional cervical motion loss. • Demonstrate a RNAG in the upper thoracic spine for a patient with pain and loss of motion. • Demonstrate 2 SNAG techniques in the cervical spine to improve ROM and decrease pain in a patient with cervical dysfunction. • Instruct a patient in 1, self -SNAG technique to include in the HEP of a patient with cervical dysfunction. • Recognize 3, symptoms/conditions warranting a Differential Diagnosis in a person with headaches. • Apply a C2 Repositioning Headache SNAG to a patient with an acute headache.
