I had considered writing a blog on my experience of attending my first physiotherapy conference, IFOMPT 2016. This was an excellent experience, and I’ve written a bit more about the conference here, on Bournemouth University’s Research Blog. (You can get copy of the poster here). What I was considering adding in this blog was a consideration of some of the striking parallels between the themes than ran through this conference and the delegation of orthopaedic/manipulative physical therapists/physiotherapists, and that which permeate the chiropractic profession too. Luckily for me, I was beaten to it, which saved me writing it. For chiropractors interested in recent developments and controversies in the profession, read this blog by Canadian physiotherapist Jesse Awenus. Sound familiar?
