The World Congress of Sports Physical Therapy is presented biennially by the International Federation of Sports Physical Therapy (IFSPT) in conjunction with its member organizations. It is designed for sports physical therapists and other disciplines who train and rehabilitate active individuals of all ages, genders, abilities and level of participation. The Congress was developed to provide high quality education using current research, the most expert presenters and the newest methods to restore all active persons to play.
Past congresses have welcomed 500-800 sports physical therapists from all seven continents.
This unique and groundbreaking event also hosts the IFSPT General Meeting, drawing individuals from all IFSPT member organizations to the congress.
