Presentation

The Illustrious Official School of Physiotherapists of the Valencian Region (ICOFCV) organises the International Conference "Neural-Musculo-Skeletal Physiotherapy on the Lumbar Spine", which will be attended by the most nationally and internationally renowned physiotherapists involved in lumbar spine treatment.

The lumbar spine has been chosen as the main theme of this congress as it represents one of the most prevalent neural-musculo-skeletal problems in today's society. Tackling it also poses a major challenge.

Everyone involved in this International Workshop will set out to shed light on the issue. We are keen to update our knowledge and bring the latest advances in the treatment of the lumbar spine to the Region of Valencia, particularly to Alicante, where this edition of the workshop will take place.

Thanks go to the Scientific Committee and the members of ICOFCV's Manual Therapy Commission, who suggested the topic for this Conference, for their invaluable cooperation. I would also like to thank all members of the Organising Committee and ICOFCV's Department of Administration for their commitment and dedication to the project. Their work will certainly contribute to improving the standards of physiotherapy in our community.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to attend and contribute to making this conference into a hub for professionals engaged in fostering good practice in healthcare and physiotherapy.

We look forward to welcoming you to Mutxamel!
