About the Conference

The conference takes place in Bliss Conference Center, Tallinn, Mustamäe tee 17.
It is organised by the Estonian Manual Medicine and Chiropractic Association (EMMCA) to bring together doctors and therapists treating musculoskeletal disorders working in conventional and complementary medicine. The conference is organised in order to supply attending practitioners with a wide spectrum of information about solving the common problem of headaches and neck pain. One of the aims is to supply conventional medicine representatives with a data base of trustworthy specialists and build trust in a situation in Estonia where there may be ignorance or misunderstandings about the practice of manual medicine. In addition to the presentations a small EXPO area will be set up in the conference room.
The conference is mainly in Estonian with consecutive and whispered interpreting in case of need.
