This two-day course presents the Mulligan approach to manual therapy for the Lumbar spine, SIJ and the lower extremity peripheral joints. It includes lectures and lab time to give the participants a thorough and in-depth coverage of the Mobilisation With Movement approach for the lower 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.

These interventions will be underpinned by sound clinical reasoning in the application of Mobilisation with Movement on patients.
