The Mulligan concept uses specific therapist-applied mobilizations with movement in the extremities and spine to restore normal, pain-free motion. The concept uses the physical therapist-applied force to correct what Mulligan describes as positional faults in the joints that prevent normal joint motion and lead to the presence of pain. This approach is another concept originating from New Zealand and melds well into the McKenzie Methods classification system.
