Promoting International Excellence and Unity in Clinical and Academic standards for Manual/Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists
The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) represents groups of Manipulative Physical Therapists around the world who have completed stringent post-registration/post-graduation specialisation programs in the field of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. We set voluntary Educational and Clinical Standards in this area of physical therapy and actively encourage improved patient management by our STANDARDS DOCUMENT by actively endorsing evidence based practice.
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of one of the founders and champions of IFOMPT and OMT worldwide, Freddy Kaltenborn. I am pleased to share the tributewritten by one of our other founders, Dr. Stanley Paris.
Ken Olson, IFOMPT President
