OMTA is a subgroup of Primephysio UK Training UK (est. 2006)

OMTA's aim is to maintain a high level of professional standards in orthopedic manual physical therapy practice. This is reflected in our mission, to Provide Excellence in Musculoskeletal Education. Since 2013 2000 physiotherapists have attended the official academy program (Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Certificate) in 8 countries UK, Malta, Dubai, Kuwait, KSA, Palestine, Jordan, Qatar, Pakistan, and Egypt. Our aim is to deliver our philosophy of OMT practice to double this number by 2022. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy practice is strongly linked to communities' quality of life, our aim is to help physiotherapists and health professionals interested in MSK problems to promote physical activity among our people to prevent as well as treat musculoskeletal symptoms. In a world of building walls Brexit, social media, and social isolation, our aim is to gather physiotherapists from around the world to practice their role as movement ambassadors. We provide a simple approach to Orthopaedic Manual therapy education based on the fact that every successful management must include an in-depth analysis that produces psychological, social, and physical problems, and use what we call the golden triangle of management where hands-on techniques, exercise prescription and education strategies are logically used to provide long treatment impact. 

Knowledge sharing is a passion, therefore all our tutors are happily traveling all over the world to present at conferences, and provide short workshops, and full training programs wherever we get invited, If you are interested to bring our activities to your country please get in touch.
