The thought process behind this book has been to elaborate the Mulligan Concept in a step by step manner to ensure easy understanding and comprehension of all the techniques used in the concept. Its systematic approach to teaching the principles behind the concept makes it particularly valuable to the physical therapist practicing Mulligan Concept. This book features descriptions of all the techniques in the Mulligan Concept with a detailed set of illustrations in a sequential manner. Emphasis has been laid on the patient position, therapist position, hand and belt placement including method of delivery of treatment with proper communication and reasoning throughout this book. The accurate application of the techniques is necessary to obtain optimal results; and the book emphasizes on this through demonstration of precautions to be taken. In this book, a free-flow of language is used to ensure that the user is able to actually feel the practical essence and easily understands the details. Most of the Illustrations are provided with signs and symbols for better understanding of the Concept. The Mulligan Concept is one of the preferred concepts & is often the first choice of treatment among clinicians because this concept allows the patients to perform the offending movements in a functional position, that too in a pain-free way, hence, making the outcome very rewarding. Especially in the recent past, Mulligan Concept has gained a lot of popularity because of its instantaneous and effective results.

The Dissertation of Clinical Practice Improvement (DoCPI) was designed to provide evidence of a Doctorate of Athletic Training (DAT) student's development in becoming an advanced scholarly practitioner. A DAT student attains advancement through reflection of patient outcomes and critical self-assessment of clinical competences, which are then applied in clinical research. Through this process, known as an action research philosophy, students are able to identify patterns within their clinic and apply treatment paradigms to solve local issues conducting practice based evidence (PBE). Within this comprehensive document, there are multiple original applied clinical research projects, indicating development of advanced practice. Additionally, a review of literature on the Mulligan Concept specific to mobilization with movement of the knee for meniscal tear symptoms, is included to demonstrate a sound foundational knowledge in the specific area of focus. Finally, a multi-site research project, designed a priori, is included specifically to restore function and alleviate pain of patients with meniscal symptoms. The culmination of the works provided within this DOCPI will represent scholarly advanced practice of an athletic training clinician.

The capstone product of the Doctor of Athletic Training (DAT) program is a Dissertation of Clinical Practice Improvement (DoCPI), and this extensive document highlights my evolution as an athletic trainer into a scholarly practitioner. Included in my DoCPI is the Plan of Advanced Practice (PoAP) that builds the foundation by which I work toward advanced practice and identifies my current clinical practices, strengths, areas of needed improvement, and professional goals while providing a structure to evaluate my growth as a clinician. The presentation of two multi-site research studies reflects the philosophy of the DAT to engage in action research and utilize practice-based evidence to address local clinical practice challenges and enhance clinical decision-making. The exploration of the effects of Mulligan Concept® thoracic sustained natural apophyseal glides (SNAGs) for the treatment of secondary impingement syndrome provided a means of investigating the regional interdependence model by indirectly treating shoulder pain via the scapulothoracic region. Further investigation of Mulligan Concept® positional SNAGs provided a foundation for the direct treatment of non-traumatic musculoskeletal injury of the cervicothoracic region without hesitation. The insight I gained through participation in action research allowed me to apply practical solutions to specific problems within my clinical setting, and the following DoCPI provides evidence of how I integrated and applied action research within my clinical setting, demonstrating my journey from a novice athletic trainer to advanced practitioner.
