    MORE INFO

    Mulligan Upper Quarter – Peripheral Joints, Cervical and Thoracic Spines.

    This two-day course presents the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Cervical and Thoracic spine as well as for the upper extremity. It includes lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants a thorough and in depth coverage of the Mobilization With Movement approach for the upper quarter. This unique approach to manual therapy was discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T. from Wellington, New Zealand. This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.

    This is an innovative approach in the field of physical therapy, growing in popularity because of its success, broad application, and relative ease with which it applied and evaluated for efficacy. The skills taught in this course have immediate clinical application.

    Learning outcomes:
    • An understanding of the tenets of the Mulligan Concept will be gained.
    • Participants will have the guidelines necessary to apply, when indicated, painless techniques to improve  neuromuscular and joint function
    • Enhanced handling skills
    • The ability to integrate the Mulligan Concept into the evaluative process
    Course Outline: Upper Quadrant (subject to minor changes)

    Instructor Biography:

    Geoff graduated with a B.Sc. in Physiotherapy in 1988 and a post-graduate Honours degree in Sport Science in 1989 from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. In 1991 he moved to Connecticut where he continues to practice orthopedic physical therapy. From 1998 until July 2004 Geoff managed the physical therapy department of Center for Orthopaedics, P.C., a multi-site Orthopaedic practice belonging to a group of surgeons. He is presently self-employed as a per diem therapist, consultant and seminar lecturer nationally in the USA. He graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2002 with an MSc in Orthopedic Physical Therapy, and is also certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as an Orthopedic Certified Specialist. Geoff has been involved with the Mulligan Concept since 1996, and received full teaching credentials with the Mulligan Concept Teacher’s Association in Rome, Italy, in 2002. There are at present count 45 accredited instructors in the Mulligan Concept worldwide. However, there remain no accredited teachers in South Africa. At the international symposium held in Auckland earlier in 2005, Brian Mulligan and the MCTA stressed the need to establish the Mulligan Concept in South Africa including identifying physiotherapists for accreditation.
