In order to be a leader, you have to learn from leaders. As a member of the NZMPA, New Zealand physiotherapists have the opportunity to learn from highly skilled professionals. The NZMPA offers a series of internationally acclaimed graduate – and refresher courses throughout New Zealand. The courses combine manual therapy techniques and evidence based practice.

The NZMPA’s links with institutions such as the Auckland University of Technology and the University of Otago strengthen the academic components of the teaching programmes. The strong relationship between the academics and clinicians gives members access to a significant degree of experience and manual therapy knowledge.

Membership of the NZMPA provides peer review, peer support and professional networking opportunities, for example at the NZMPA’s biennial conference. Sign up to our NZMPA Members Page – a closed Facebook group for members, to give members a chance to ask musculoskeletal and manual therapy questions, post case students and discuss ideas.

New Zealand manipulative physiotherapists are in demand worldwide. You are invited you to improve your skills, increase your knowledge and become part of a very special group of physiotherapists!
