Prevention – Mission Possible 2018 is an evidence based sports physiotherapy congress. This fourth international sports physiotherapy congress in Finland is organized by the Finnish Sports Physiotherapists Association, FSPA, will be held in the capital of Finland Helsinki the 8th – 9th June 2018.

Today in sports physiotherapy, the importance of sports injury prevention programs and preventive strategies are recognized as determinant and therapeutic strategies. Therefore, it is obvious that injury prevention and illness in sport is the focus of sports medicine and –rehabilitation, thus the theme of our congress is prevention.

Without no doubt this congress will represent an ideal platform for a thorough and constructive exchange of views and practices in the growing awareness among sports physiotherapists, not only nationally in Finland but also internationally at sports injury preventive programs and rehabilitation.

The 2018 congress priority is to highlight the athletes shoulder problems, a very common body part to be injured in the perspective of the latest research and consensus statements. At the 2018 congress again a strong pragmatic causation will be delivered by several hands-on demonstrations linked to oral presentations by the speakers.

We are happy to inform that Prevention – Mission Possible 2018  will be held in a traditional conference venue in Helsinki – Marina Congress Center.

Register yourself and enjoy a professionally organized conference and catch up with the latest research in a relaxing environment.

On behalf of the organising- and scientific committees I warmly welcome you to Helsinki 2018!
