The Mulligan Concept – Do you know how to use this New Zealand born concept in your assessment and management of musculoskeletal problems seen daily in your practice?

This very safe, very successful manual therapy concept is proving to be a winner around the world with physiotherapists. Research is giving ample justification that you should be familiar with these techniques.

The NZMPA is offering a three-part Mulligan Concept course, presented by Jillian McDowell, structured as follows:

Part A, which covers the upper quartile, cervical and thoracic spine
Part B, which covers the lower quartile and lumbar spine
Part C, which includes further topics, as well as an examination of the whole course

For 2019, the following courses in this series are presented:

Part A
6 and 7 April 2019 – Auckland
23 and 24 March 2019 – Wellington

Part B
27 and 28 July 2019 – Wellington
31 August and 1 September 2019 – Auckland

The two-day workshops are designed for the busy clinician and are very “hands on”. They are taught sequentially (Part A is a prerequisite for Part B, and both parts A and B are prerequisites for Part C). All participants will have new manual therapy skills to apply to their patients upon returning to work after the course. Brian Mulligan’s latest textbook is the course manual and treatment belts, lumbar snaggers and cervical snaggers will be available for purchase during the course. Mulligan Concept tapings will also be practiced.

Techniques include NAGS, SNAGS, MWMS and spinal mobilisations with arm and leg movements for non-radicular pain. All have the unique safety feature of being pain free for the patient immediately if they are indicated for their symptoms.

The course is limited to 18 students, and priority will be given to NZMPA financial members.

The CMP Update requires participants to have completed Mulligan Concept Course Parts A, B, C and the Exam prior to November 2017.
