This is a newer manual therapy technique that is named after Brian Mulligan, a physiotherapist from New Zealand, who came up with a term Movement with mobilization for the first time, that is part of the core concept in Mulligan concept. Since then, Mulligan concept is among popular manual therapy technique due to its instant and long-lasting effect on joint restriction. All the techniques in Mulligan concept are performed in pain-free range but significant improvement with joint mobility is expected after a certain number of repetitions.
