The Physiotherapy Pain Association (PPA) was formed to bring together and provide information for Physiotherapists with the common interest of managing patients with both acute and long term pain. The PPA was established in 1994 for Chartered Physiotherapists and was recognised as a Clinical Interest Group of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) in 1996.
The PPA will hold an interest for those physiotherapists working in an out patient department using traditional physiotherapy interventions and interested in developing evidence based best practice, through to those working in a multidisciplinary pain clinic to those using the integrated approach in pain management programmes.
You will find like minded colleagues within the Association who are enthusiastic to discuss and progress ideas and challenges in developing physiotherapy practice within local, national and international scientific communities.
One of the key objectives of the Association is to promote the role of physiotherapy in the relief and management of pain to other Professionals as well as to Physiotherapists.
