「The future of manual physical therapy in Asia」

Isamu Sunagawa
Chair
Shiga school of Medical Technology

 The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT), one of the lower associations of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT), is currently made up of 22 membership organizations (MOs) and 14 registered interest groups (RIGs). At present, however, IFOMPT has an image of being an association led by European countries and the U.S. because only Japan and Hong Kong have an MO and only Korea and the Philippines have a RIG in Asia.
 We are planning to hold the 1st conference of Asian OMPT Society this year and get together as many manual physical therapists in Asia as possible. We wish all participants to understand the organization of IFOMPT and the educational standards established by IFOMPT. As the same time, we wish to increase the number of Asian MOs, develop lots of excellent manual physical therapists, and construct a network of manual physical therapists in Asia.
 In this conference, IFOMPT’s director will deliver a lecture on various subjects including (1) IFOMPT’s activities in progress worldwide and (2) IFOMPT’s original educational standards and monitoring system. In addition, invited teachers playing a leading role in the field of manual physical therapy in Asia are scheduled to hold symposiums and speak from their respective standpoints under the title “Manual physical therapy in the future in Asia.” Many oral presentations and poster presentation are also scheduled.
 We sincerely hope that the 1st Conference of Asian OMPT Society will contribute to the development of manual physical therapy and construction of a network of manual physical therapists in Asia. We are sure that all Asian countries take this conference as an opportunity to start to work together hand-in-hand to develop manual physical therapy in Asia.
