ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 2 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).

Certificate of Completion
Upon completion of this class, you should be able to:
- Summarize the concept of Mobilization with Movement (MWM) along with its technique guidelines
- Identify spinal theories for the Mulligan Concept
- Describe techniques for applying MWM for the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint, and hip
Upon completion the participant will be able to:
1. Articulate the “PILL” acronym and expectations of a MWM application to a patient with low back pain.
2. Integrate a central SNAG for either flexion or extension in the treatment plan of a patient experiencing low back pain during sitting or standing.
3. Implement a prone MWM for a patient with limited extension ROM and pain in the lumbar spine.
4. Incorporate the “Lion” exercise with a mobilization belt in the treatment plan of a patient with unilateral pain in the upper lumbar segments.
5. Educate a patient with pain in lumbar extension in a self -SNAG technique to add to their home program.
6. Apply the bent leg raise technique on a patient with a positive SLR test in a lower extremity.
7. Justify the use of the 2-leg rotation mobilization in a patient with a positive SLR in a lower extremity.
8. Evaluate a SI joint condition from a lumbar segment dysfunction in a patient complaining of “low back” pain and apply the appropriate Mulligan strategy.
9. Apply a belt technique to improve hip IR motion in a patient with a capsular pattern.
10. Integrate a weight bearing mobilization in the treatment plan of an athlete with tight adductors, where abduction ROM at the hip is needed.
