This graduate level 2 day workshop deals with Brian Mulligan’s concept of the application of mobilization with movement (MWM), a new and exciting approach in manual therapy. Seminar participants can expect a syllabus high on practical application with a clear understanding of the rationale for use of MWM’s in both the cervical/thoracic spine and upper extremities. Following this course, therapists should be able to effectively apply the techniques in their own practices and expect immediate positive patient outcomes.

Brian Mulligan FNZSP has been New Zealand’s leading international lecturer in manual therapy since 1972. Brian has served as New Zealand’s IFOMPT representative, principle instructor for the NZMTA and lecturer at Curtin University in Perth Australia. Brian was granted the Geoff Maitland award by IFOMPT for his contribution to manual therapy in 2016.

He has developed the concept of combining accessory glide mobilizations with patient generated physiological movement (MWM). His publications include articles in the Journal of Manipulative and Manual Therapy, the N.Z. Journal of Physiotherapy and his own publication: Manual Therapy “Nags, Snags and MWM’s”.

Physiotherapists can be found all across Nova Scotia.
