Conference/Event Information



We are pleased to invite you to our latest RMTBC conference as we continue to proactively present continuing education that ensures you are constantly up to date on the cutting edge of research, practice, science and techniques.

In recent years, the RMTBC has hosted several extremely successful conferences with attendees and speakers alike lauding the importance and relativity of these meetings. This track record of delivering and going well beyond expectations includes the sold out 3rd International Fascial Research Congress hosted in 2012 and a Pain Management Conference in 2014. The 2016 Manual Therapy Conference continues this commitment of presenting the very latest and best research and information possible.

Internationally known speakers and practitioners will address the science and practice of manual therapy using safe and effective manipulative and/or movement therapies. Emphasis will be on evidence-based techniques with sound science underpinning theoretical constructs. Two days of keynote speakers, panel discussions and break-out sessions will be followed by one day of intensive workshops.

We expect 400 participants from a very diverse audience of health-care professionals who work mainly in the manual disciplines. The conference will appeal to those who are vitally interested in increasing their knowledge of various therapies by learning of the most recent developments in the field.
