NZMPA Mulligan Concept Lower Quartile CHC)

(Part B)


Lower Quartile Course - 6 + 7 August 2022

(Renamed from Mulligan Concept Part B)

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:

Upper Quarter Course, which covers the upper quartile, cervical and thoracic spine
Lower Quarter Course, which covers the lower quartile and lumbar spine
Advanced (CMP Exam) Course, which includes further topics, as well as an examination of the whole course

The two-day workshops are designed for the busy clinician and are very “hands on”. They are taught sequentially (Upper Quartile is a prerequisite for the Lower Quartile, and both Upper and Lower are prerequisites for the Advanced course). 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.

This two-day course presents the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint as well as for the lower 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 lower quarter.
