As we acknowledged in our message within the booklet of abstracts for this congress, now we have deliberate the programme over a protracted interval with one transparent aim: to offer musculoskeletal medication as a vital part of orthodox clinical perform, instead of as anything substitute or complementary. To this finish we now have established the plenary programme so far as attainable on authorised epidemiological, anatomical, physiological and pathological phenomena. Scientifically well-validated fabric needs to without doubt be the bottom upon which any achievable musculoskeletal medication perform could be outfitted. whereas we now have selected the plenary programme to mirror musculoskeletal medication as part of orthodoxy, we become aware of and need to stress that there's a wealth of unique paintings that has been conducted inside of FIMM. consequently our first innovation for the congress was once to ask contributors of the medical advisory committee to pick for a 'directed' programme the 3 themes they felt have been of maximum present significance. the result of this democratic approach used to be the alternative of the sacroiliac joint, a comparability of handbook treatments and biomechanics. This illustrates the large course of current pondering inside FIMM.

READING Evaluation of the patient in pain requires an appreciation of pain mechanisms. Pain comes about via stimulation of a noxious nature, whereby the sensation is transmitted from nerve cell to nerve cell via a complex electrochemical process, then to the spinal cord and ultimately to the brain.
