Welcome to this month's IFOMPT Evidence Release

With the Olympics now in full flow, we decided to take a closer look at Olympic sport, physiotherapy and preparations for Rio in our Special Interest Topic this month - lots of interest for anyone inspired by Rio 2016!

We also have plenty of systematic reviews and RCTs in our usual topic areas, including a Cochrane Review Update on Mechanical Neck disorders and a Consensus Statement on return to sport.

We hope that you find this issue useful and that you enjoy IFOMPT Evidence Release this month.

IFOMPT General Meeting 2016
The IFOMPT General meeting took place in Glasgow on Wednesday, 6 July 2016 and it was great having voting delegates and other observers from all 22 our Member Organisations as well as representatives from several Registered Interest Groups present.  In addition, we were honoured to have several Past Presidents including Prof Stanley Paris, Angeta Lando and Michael Ritchie who were our tellers on the day in attendance.
