Accreditation: • Certificate of attendance is provided for Continuing Education (CE) credits, 13 hours • Approved for 13 hours of CE by the NYSED for PTs and PTAs • ProCert certified for 11 CCUs Course Description: This two-day manual therapy seminar offers a new and simple approach in manual therapy which has been developed by Brian Mulligan, F.N.Z.S.P., Dip. M.T. This course covers the application of mobilizations with movements (MWM's) for lower quadrant extremity and spinal joint dysfunction. The course is designed for health care professionals licensed to perform joint mobilizations who wish to broaden their existing manual therapy skills for use within their defined scope of practice. 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 lower quarter • Develop the knowledge and manual skills to successfully apply and integrate the MWM techniques • Integrate taping techniques with Mobilization with Movement • Understand the guidelines for safe and effective technique selection • Improve clinical outcomes.
