Functional examination and treatment of the pelvic dysfunction using Mobilisation with Movement

Over the last 25 years, Mark Oliver has developed a system of analysis and treatment based on MWM principles that greatly simplifies and clarifies examination and treatment of pelvic dysfunction. This 2-day program was extensively updated in 2017 and has a new format designed to simplify and enhance the learning experience. By providing an electronic copy of the manual for pre-reading, it has been possible to further expand the “hands on” component of the course. You cannot learn the practical components of this material online!

The examination component

This course includes a new generation of functional load transfer tests that can be used to assess various elements of failed load transfer (pelvic dysfunction) across the pelvis. These tests are a critical element of pelvic examination as pelvic dysfunction has the capacity to result in pain being experienced in other parts of the body even when the pelvis is symptom free. Some of these tests are validated, while others are currently being researched. They include observation based load transfer tests and tests for measuring inhibition, bracing and weakness.

In addition to identifying failed pelvic load transfer, these tests can be used to immediately assess the effectiveness of MWM (and other) interventions. However, the true effectiveness of the MWM intervention can only be gauged by how it affects the patient’s presenting complaint. Consequently, the primary examination element taught in this program is how to use MWM to determine appropriate real-time treatment. Rather than using pain provocation tests (PPTs) to provoke pain, MWM examination procedures are performed with the aim of eliminating pain on movement as the patient reproduces the previously symptomatic activity. In this way, the clinician is able to ascertain conditions that are required to render a pain provoking activity symptom free or eliminate the element of failed pelvic load transfer that has resulted in a symptomatic maladaptive movement pattern.
