Researchers in manual therapies will join together in May of 2022, for the inaugural International Consortium on Manual Therapies (ICMT) Conference. The ICMT is an organization of assembled international leaders dedicated to advancing the quality of patient and client care provided by practitioners of manual therapy through scientific collaboration. The ICMT working groups draw from the basic sciences, chiropractic, massage therapy, osteopathic, physical therapy and structural integration professions bringing modern clinician viewpoints together with scientific research foundations. The ICMT Conference 2022, hosted by the A.T. Still Research Institute, a division of A.T. Still University, is a conference held globally via an interactive web platform. The Conference program will actively engage attendees to help shape the future of collaboration and research in manual therapies.
