About Us



The Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) is a group of over 1200 physiotherapists, who are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

In addition to their undergraduate training they have all undertaken extensive postgraduate study and reached a recognised standard of excellence in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Their knowledge and practical skills ensures that all MACP Physiotherapists are able to provide an excellent standard of care in examination, treatment and management for people with musculoskeletal problems.

In the UK the MACP is recognised as the specialist manipulative therapy group by the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT). To obtain membership of the MACP clinicians have to complete a recognised postgraduate course of study, many of which are at a Master of Science level. The association has over 1200 full members (members who have passed a stringent examination process) and associate members (members undertaking post-graduate education leading to membership).
