DESCRIPTION: This Workshop presents the Mulligan approach to manual therapy adapted for the canine patient. This unique, manual technique was developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T. It is highly effective for musculoskeletal disorders and uses a pain-free, manual joint “repositioning” technique for restoring function and reducing pain. Participants learn NAGS (Natural Apophyseal Glides – oscillatory mobilizations) and SNAGS (Sustained Natural Apophyseal Glides) for treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions. New and effective joint mobilizations for the canine limbs are also presented. The course covers advanced joint mobilizations of the extremities, from the toes to scapula and hips. It includes patient demonstrations and a strong focus on hands-on lab sessions to give in-depth coverage of treatment techniques.
