Iranian Osteopathic Association (IrOA)
Physiotherapist/osteopath, Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, DPT, DO is the first president of the newly formed Iranian Osteopathic Association (IrOA).
IrOA is affiliated with the International Osteopathic Association (IOA) and follows its mandate and policies.
Dr Shokouhi is a doctor of physical therapy (DPT) and doctor of osteopathy (DO) graduate of the National University of Medical Sciences in Spain.
Out of the 400 physiotherapists alumni of NUMSS (Spain) in Iran, 50 of them have also obtained DO degrees to become osteopaths.
We congratulate the profession of osteopathy in Iran for establishing this new association. It is about time and we are sure IrOA will be fundamental in growth of osteopathy in Iran.
