For the fifth time the Swedish Naprapathic Association arranged the congress FoMM, Forum on Manual Medicine. This time the theme was “Cervical spine with focus on shoulders and arms” and it was held at Aronsborg conference hotel in Bålsta.

The congress days was started with workshops the night before when the physiotherapist Sarah Mottram held a lecture about ¨Controlling the orientation of the Scapula¨ and Dr. Jay Shah held his workshop; ¨ Myofascial trigger points, sensitization and neuromusculoskeletal pain: Intergrating pain mechanisms with objective physical afindings and treatment strategies¨.

The days of the congress consisted out of five presentations where Mottram focused on regaining function in neck and shoulder while Shah presented the latest discoveries within myofascial pain. These two was accompanied by Dr. Thomas Lundberg who lectures about what we manual therapists can do for patients with neck and shoulder pain.
