Welcome to this month's IFOMPT Evidence Release

This month our Special Interest Topic is Tendinopathy, and we have lots of research for you on this - not just in our special section but throughout our regular topic sections as well. Also, in our news section find out what our Greece MO have been up to.

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

Alison Rushton, chair of our Standards Committee has been awarded a Fellowship from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy in recognition of an outstanding contribution to advancing the standards of manual therapy and manual therapy research nationally and internationally. Congratulations and thank you for all the hard work.


News from our Greece MO
A.M.P.G. (Association of Manipulative Physiotherapists of Greece) is one of the two founding members of the Greek M.O. It was founded in 2004 and in 2008 its educational program in Manual Therapy was found to meet IFOMPT’s criteria. Our main goal since the beginning has been to introduce manual therapy to Greek physios.
