Brian Mulligan Examination And Treatment For The Upper Quadrant
Due to COVID travel and association restrictions, this course has been delayed. Please email the course director to express your interest or sign up on our blog to receive updates and clinical and research tips and insights.
Along with the Lower Quadrant, this course forms one of the two 'core' units of the Mulligan Concept Program. Presented by Mr. Mark Oliver (certified Mulligan concepts teacher), this 2-day practical workshop provides participants with new examination and easy to apply treatment skills. Participants must be registered as a physiotherapist, chiropractor, osteopath or medical practitioner with AHPRA.
The unique examination and treatment techniques were developed by New Zealand physiotherapist Brian Mulligan for the upper limb and cervical spine. Specific techniques taught include NAGs, SNAGs, MWMs and PRPs.
Mark has had the privilege of Brian’s mentoring since 1981 which continues to this day. He is Australia's most experienced Mulligan Concept teacher having taught the approach intensively since 1988.
