Murdoch aligning chiropractic conferences in Perth

August 21, 2012

Murdoch University is set to host chiropractic students and professionals for two major global conferences in August and September.

The World Congress of Chiropractic Students (WCCS) takes place from August 23 to 29 at Rendezvous Hotel Perth. Now in its 33rd year, the WCCS is an international forum encouraging discussion of issues that impact on the chiropractic professional globally.

“The WCCS’ active membership consists of over 10,000 students from more than 25 schools around the world. There really is no better place for students and professionals to meet, network, compare experiences and hear from leading international speakers,” said Dr Brian Nook, Dean of Murdoch University’s School of Chiropractic and Sports Science.

This year’s speakers include Murdoch University’s Dr Randy Beck, leading American practitioner Dr Sue Brown and teacher, coach and consultant Dr John Hinwood, whose book You Can… Expect a Miracle! has become an international bestseller.

Murdoch University will follow WCCS by hosting the WFC/ACC/CCIAP Education Conference from September 26 to 29. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Chiropractic Education: Translating Evidence into Practice’.

“The four days are aimed at chiropractic clinicians, academics and researchers, though it offers a lot to health providers across a range of disciplines, including osteopaths, physiotherapists and those in nursing and massage,” Dr Nook said.

Dr Nook said that the conferences were a nice way to celebrate the success of Murdoch’s Chiropractic program, which is celebrating its 10th year in 2012.

“To have students, professionals and leading speakers coming to Perth attests to the world-class calibre of our Chiropractic program,” he said.

Accidents may cause your spine to be misaligned. Sometimes even repetitive actions could could cause this. The chiropractors could help you to fix this back to normal.
