Manual Therapy Conference: An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Science and Practice

Manual Therapy Conference: An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Science and Practice will take place April 16 and 17 2016 with post conference workshops April 18. We are expecting participants with a diverse audience of healthcare professionals mainly from the manual disciplines.

Presentations will address the science and practice of manual therapy using safe and effective manipulative and or movement therapies. Emphasis will be on evidence-based techniques. Sound science will underpin theoretical constructs. Participants are expecting to increase their understanding of various therapies by learning of the most recent developments in the field.

This is the latest successful international conferences RMTBC hosts. In April of 2012 RMTBC hosted the sold out 3rd International Fascial Research Congress here in Vancouver. In March 0f 2014 RMTBC held another successful conference, "Pain Management" with its partner PainBC.
