Frank Gargano

Sterling Physical Therapy is honored to present area physical therapists with the opportunity to attend a two-day manual therapy seminar led by Frank Gargano, PT, DPT, OCS, of the Mulligan Concept Teachers Association.

This two-day course will be held on March 20-21, 2010 at our clinic in Pella. The fee to participate is $450, payable to Sterling Physical Therapy. The registration form is available for download.

The Mulligan Concept offers a new and simple approach in manual therapy. It is the application of mobilizations with movements (MWMS) and was developed by Brian Mulligan, M.N.Z.S.P., Dip. M.T. for lower extremity and spinal joint dysfunction.

Course Description

It is an expectation of this course that therapists with a normal case load will see an immediate improvement in outcome measures with patients with restricted and/or painful movement. This course is one of three courses required to sit for the certification examination leading to qualification as a Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP).

  • Present and apply the principles of the Mulligan Concept of manual therapy.
  • Challenge established conceptual models of pathology and treatment.

  • Review and discuss anatomy and biomechanics as it relates to treatment.
  • Enhance assessment & treatment skills of the Lumbar, Sacroiliac, and LE joints.
  • Develop and refine psycho-motor skills in the application of manual therapy.

Who Should Attend

The course is designed for licensed health care professionals who wish to broaden their existing manual therapy skills for use within their defined scope of practice.
