21st FIMM International Scientific Conference

October 27th - 30th, 2022

Manual Medicine in Children - The State of the Art

24th ÄMKA Conference
57th FIMM General Assembly

Dear practitioners of Manual Medicine

Manual Medicine has been firmly established as an essential method for treating movement disorders and musculoskeletal pain in adolescents and adults.

Manual Medicine is also a wonderful tool to assess and treat a large variety of pediatric disorders. This area has been well developed in a few schools of Manual Medicine, but is not yet widely well known.

Articular and muscular somatic dysfunction can be a cause of infantile scoliosis, some instances of wry neck and also a cause of excessive crying in infants. If they are not treated, these pathologies can become a factor towards the development of so-called clumsy children. Many typical orthopedic pathologies can be compounded by somatic dysfunction and helped by manual treatment. Examples are congenital hip dislocation, Perthes disease or idiopathic adolescent scoliosis. Neurologically impaired children can also often benefit from manual treatment, as the movement disorders resulting from cerebral palsy can be amplified by additional somatic dysfunction.

We want to introduce you to the wide possibilities of Manual Medicine in children and invite you to attend the joint International scientific conference by FIMM and ÄMKA in Hannover, Germany Oct. 28-30, 2022. The three day event will focus on the practical aspects of the method and will include lectures and many hands-on workshops by international experts. It will be held in close cooperation with one of Germany´s largest pediatric orthopedic departments at Hannover Medical School, where Manual Medicine is a well-established field. ÄMKA is the German society for Manual Medicine that is specifically dedicated to treating children.
