Mulligan Treatment Belts and Straps
An innovation in the Mulligan Concept is the use of specific self treatment straps for the cervical and lumbar spine. For those familiar with the Mulligan Concept the straps replace the use of towels for self mobilisation and can be used very effectively to restore pain-free range in all directions for cervical and lumbar movements. Patients can be quickly taught to use these belts, which then create a highly effective and specific home treatment programme for maintaining the effectiveness of the therapist intervention. These straps provide an effective means of isolating the mobilisation exercise to a specific motion segment. Having first shown these straps in Australia in 1999, there has been unprecedented demand for them and excellent feedback as to their usefulness in the clinical setting. A clinical trial has also demonstrated the effectiveness of the straps in the management of C1/2 dysfunction in cervicogenic headache. In addition we supply manual therapy treatment belts to assist the therapist with mobilisation techniques. The straps and manual therapy treatment belts are low cost and are available in Australia only from Manual Concepts.
Please note there is no additional cost for postage to Australian addresses. For international orders there is a surcharge of $20 per order
Mulligan Concept – Upper and Lower Quadrant
These exciting two day clinical workshops will present in depth the unique concept developed and refined by internationally acclaimed New Zealand physiotherapist Brian Mulligan. This concept will provide your clinical practice with a stimulating new dimension, giving you an extensive array of treatment options to manage your client list. All the latest techniques, including Nags, Snags, PRPs and MWMs, for the spine, lower and upper extremity will be covered in these fully comprehensive programmes.

The latest edition of Brian Mulligans book, “Manual Therapy”, now in its 6th edn forms the basis for these courses. Course participants can be assured that they will receive the latest information regarding the Mulligan concept. No previous experience of the Mulligan Concept is required to attend, each course is stand alone. Participants are given very close practical supervision to ensure high levels of competency and an understanding of technique application through clinical reasoning and practical demonstration. Both Kim Robinson and Dr Toby Hall have been members of the international Mulligan Concept Teachers Association since 1995. Both are internationally accredited Mulligan Concept teachers, ratified by Brian Mulligan. They bring both a wealth of clinical experience and in-depth knowledge regarding the evidence base for the Mulligan Concept. Both Toby and Kim are involved in a wide range of research with respect to the Mulligan Concept, and have published a range of articles and book chapters on the topic. Toby is the editor of “Mobilisation with Movement: The art and the science” published in 2011 and also “The Mulligan Concept of Manual Therapy: Textbook of techniques” published in 2015, both produced by Elsevier.
