According to Brian Mulligan, manual therapy is a specialist diagnostic and therapeutic method constantly evolving along with the development of medicine and scientific research. It is a joint mobilisation. It works directly on the joints and indirectly also on the neuromuscular system.

The therapy is used in patients with spinal and peripheral joint dysfunctions, struggling with intervertebral disc disease, and suffering from dizziness or chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system.

The Mulligan method is an excellent

The Mulligan method is an excellent method that allows you to adjust the ankle joint after spraining. In addition, it helps restore neck mobility if the patient cannot move the head/neck in one direction or has a limited range of motion in the shoulder joint. This method is very safe and practically painless. It is suitable for all ages, including children and the elderly (60+).

What diseases does magnetotherapy help with?

Manual therapy, according to Brian Mulligan’s concept, is particularly effective in the treatment of such diseases as:

  • Back pain syndromes, e.g. overload changes, degenerative changes, sciatica.
  • Pain syndromes, e.g. tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow.
  • Injuries and contusions, e.g. sprained ankle, sprained joint, pulled/torn muscles.
  • Scars, e.g. after caesarean section, hematomas.
  • Disorders of the lymphatic system such as oedema, rehabilitation of women after pregnancy, and muscle strengthening during damage to the rectus abdominis muscles (often after childbirth).
