We are very proud to announce that Marissa Reilly, DPT of Cioffredi & Associates in Lebanon has completed her Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP) certification.  Marissa leads up our Sports Performance Program and adds this certification to her existing qualifications as a Physical Therapy Doctorate, Athletic Trainer, and Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

What is The Mulligan Concept?

The Mulligan Concept is an advanced set of specific manual therapy skills geared towards joint treatment when pain and range of motion are involved. It is especially helpful for the spine with immediate and usually long-standing reductions in pain, and improved function/ROM.  The basic concept is that, by applying an appropriate force to an affected joint while a patient moves in the direction of pain, it will eventually reduce pain and improve motion. Learn more about the Mulligan Certification here.

By acquiring this certification, Marissa becomes one of four CMPs in the state of NH and is now regularly utilizing Mulligan mobilization with movement concepts into her treatments with clients. Please join us in congratulating her on this great achievement!

In late 2017, Kris Bowen came to us with knee pain so severe she was unable to walk up and down stairs. Recently, she was able to partake in the experience of a lifetime, hiking all over rocky coast of Scotland!

“I just wanted to share this picture of me in Scotland celebrating my 50th birthday! When we started working together a year ago, this was my goal. For over two weeks we walked rocky beaches in the Inner Hebrides islands. We hiked on steep and muddy paths through the Highlands. We got to experience so much beauty on the trip of a lifetime. My knee felt great! I took my time on some of the trickier terrain (I like to think of it as contemplative walking) and the hiking poles were an excellent asset to have along. But overall, I just felt strong and ready to take on all the fantastic adventures we waded into. Thank you so very much for your help getting my knee back in shape so I could have this wonderful experience!” -Kris Bowen
