IFOMPT accepts AAOMPT as a member organization in 1992.

Along with Carol Jo Tichenor, Joe Farrell and Kornelia Kulig writes the successful application for the United States to become a member of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists (IFOMT) in 1992.  During the Vail, Colorado IFOMT meeting the USA application is unanimously approved by member countries with the AAOMPT and designated as the manual therapy organization representing the USA.

Now that the US had a national organization representing manual therapists and supporting post-professional education, work needs to be done to integrate manipulative therapy into physical therapy programs, both post-graduate and undergraduate, and to define our standards of practice.
