Chiropractic Stream Program – Scientific Symposium
SpineWeek began in Porto, Portugal in 2004 and has occurred once every four years since then, taking place in Geneva, Amsterdam and Singapore. As more and more participants were journeying from Asia and Oceania region, the SpineWeek committee is excited to bring the conference to Australia.
“This represents a great opportunity for Australian chiropractic” says ACA Professional Services Manager Glynis Grace. “The SpineWeek conference provides ACA and Chiropractic Australia the chance to work collaboratively on a major international event”, she said.
Chiropractic Australia’s President, Rod Bonello also commented saying, “Given the growing evidence supporting non-pharmacological and non-surgical approaches to the management of neck and back pain, it is an opportune time for the chiropractic profession to become involved in this prestigious conference by highlighting the role chiropractors can play in the conservative management of spinal pain.’
Dr Michael Swain, one of the convenors of the chiropractic stream, recently wrote an article on this event and you can read it here: SpineWeek 2020
