Our mission

AQPMA is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to train expert physiotherapists in the field of musculoskeletal health. Through current manual therapy paradigms based on the bio-psycho-social model, we help our students to acquire sound clinical reasoning and to integrate validated intervention tools into their clinical practice. We bring the physiotherapy profession to the forefront thereby elevating healthcare standards.
