MESSAGE FROM

THE CHAIRMAN

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to MAHSA University at Saujana Putra Campus for the First International Conference on Manual Therapy on 5 & 6 May 2018. This conference aims to update the knowledge and skills of physiotherapists on manual therapy and emphasize the importance of evidence-based practice in the management of musculoskeletal pain and disability. The conference includes two pre-conference workshops on manual therapy techniques and a post-conference workshop on pain. There will be several plenary sessions and symposiums presented by experienced speakers. Through this conference, we believe that manual therapy will be practiced more effectively to resolve patients’ musculoskeletal pain and movement dysfunctions.

We are proud to host this conference and it is our desire to make your stay in Kuala Lumpur as pleasant as possible. You can take this opportunity to visit some tourist attractions around Kuala Lumpur or other parts of Malaysia. We hope that the conference will serve as the best platform for experts and practitioners on manual therapy from all over the world to exchange views, experiences, best practices and latest findings.

Welcome to the International Conference on Manual Therapy.
