Mulligan's Professional Training Courses
Mulligan's Professional Courses
Brian Mulligan is the originator of the Mulligan Concept and “mobilisation with movement” as we know it today and founder of Mulligan Concept Teachers Association (MCTA). Without his intellect, insight and enthusiasm, a whole area of manual therapy may have never seen the light of day.
Brian is listed as one of "The Seven Most Influential Persons in Orthopedic Physical Therapy Today" by members of the American Physical Therapy Association and Mulligan Concept courses are among the most popular courses for physiotherapists worldwide.
Brian Mulligan has “retired” from teaching the basic Mulligan Concept courses, but continues to present combined seminars and can be coaxed by MCTA teachers to present his work at various conferences and events internationally. Brian plans to “drop in the saddle” and the hope of MCTA members is that he will continue to present his work for a long time to come.
Mark Oliver presents the Mulligan Upper and Lower Quadrant courses in Perth and also his own course "SIJ & Pelvis", in which assessment and treatment methods are based upon Mulligan concepts.
Mark is an internationally recognised clinical educator with 30 years clinical experience and 25 years teaching experience. He was a lecturer on the Graduate Diploma in Manipulative Therapy and Graduate Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy courses at Curtin University, has presented more than 200 clinical workshops and lectures, is a keynote speaker at conferences, has written chapters in textbooks and published in scientific journals. Mark is Australia’s most experienced Mulligan Concept teacher and practitioner.
Mulligan's The Pelvis
Examination and Treatment of the SIJ & Pelvis Utilising the Mulligan Concept
Utilising Brian Mulligan's concepts this course is uniquely designed and presented around the world by Mr Mark Oliver (certified Mulligan concepts teacher) to assist practitioners to assess and treat painful conditions involving the pelvic girdle.
This 2-day practical workshop provides participants with new examination and treatment skills for SIJ, pubic symphysis and pelvic dysfunction.
Using the Mulligan Concept and mobilisation with movement (MWM) techniques, Mark has developed a system of analysis and treatment that greatly simplifies the current approach to SIJ and pubic symphysis dysfunction. Most of the treatment techniques are completely original and have never been seen outside this program.
The approach lessens dependence on palpation examination findings and augments pelvic examination with a system of MWM based clinical reasoning and movement analysis.
This approach is easy to learn, appealing to experienced and inexperienced clinicians alike and can be quickly integrated into existing examination and treatment models.
New SIJ self-treatment techniques are also included. In addition, elements of an effective neuromuscular exercise program utilising MWM will be taught.
The combination of MWM and active exercise provides a comprehensive treatment regime for most forms of mechanical sacroiliac and pubic symphysis dysfunction.
"The course provided clear differentiation and assessment of PGP, leading to reasoned treatment – a first in PGP in my long experience. Very effective clinically already. The patient fell into the splits, avulsed all 3 left hamstrings, surgically repaired. 8 months post-op, still struggling to achieve sustained normal gait, hammy difficult to strengthen. Assessment clearly showed failed load transfer and logically where treatment was needed. 3 sessions in, 60% improvement. As I think Brian Mulligan used to remark, ‘smiles all round’.
Laurie McCormack Work Function Victoria
- Have a good understanding of applied anatomy of the pelvic osseous, ligamentous and neuromuscular system as they related to the SIJ, pubic symphysis and hip
- Be aware of current literature related to examination and treatment of the SIJ, pubic symphysis and pelvis
- Have an advanced level of understanding of the Mulligan Concept of MWM and the clinical reasoning process on which it is based
- Be able to confidently perform a basic evaluation of the SIJ and pubic symphysis using Mulligan concept principles and integrate them into an eclectic examination of the pelvis
- Be able to identify significant functional SIJ and pubic symphysis problems
- Be able to confidently perform MWM and self-MWM treatment techniques for the SIJ and pubic symphysis
