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.

Course Description: Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a Powerful Tool for the Rehabilitation and Fitness Professional. With Over 160 Peer-reviewed Articles in the Scientific Literature the Efficacy Can Not Be Denied. By Applying a Tourniquetto Exercising Limbs You Can Improve Strength, Hypertrophy and Endurance Changes While Using a Very Light Load Within a Small Space Like an Athletic Training Room or Small Treatment Room. What is the buzz all about surrounding blood flow restriction training (BFR)? You should be asking yourself that as a health professional. With almost 200 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature the efficacy and safety cannot be denied. By applying a pneumatic tourniquet to exercising limbs you can: • Increase strength • Increase hypertrophy • Increase VO2 Max BFR is the act of safely restricting venous blood flow from a working muscle, but allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle. This is done primarily with low intensity resistance training. Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased. So what does this mean for you the health professional? • Drastically improve your patients' post-surgical recovery time • Treat muscle atrophy in both acute and chronic pain patients • Use as accessory work into your client programming for less stress on joints and tendons • Increase your endurance athlete’s VO2 Max with as little as 2x/week BFR training • Separate yourself from other clinicians by performing the latest, evidenced-based rehab/exercise program This course will cover: • The wide range of benefits of BFR training • Contraindications to BFR and when and where it should be applied • How to safely screen and assess your patient/client prior to BFR • How to safely apply BFR cuffs for the upper and lower extremity • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athletic performance training • Develop and devise a rehab program for your patients and clients Registration Fee: • Licensed Provider course: $1,650.00 (Save $249) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) • Student Course: $1,500.00 (Save $399) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) Course Objectives: By the end of the course, attendees will be able to: • Discuss the benefits of blood flow restriction (BFR) training • Discuss Indications and Contraindications of BFR Training • Demonstrate safe and effective placement of BFR cuffs • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athleticperformance training • Critically Analyze the utility of BFR in the rehabilitation setting • Develop and devise a training program for a potential patient or client
