Message from the President of the Congress

Dear colleagues,
From previous experiences, ABRAFIN comes consolidating the main scientific event of Brazil in the area of physical therapy Neurofuncional. In this sense, the III BRAZILIAN CONGRESS of PHYSICAL THERAPY NEUROFUNCIONAL-3rd COBRAFIN. The central theme of this important event will be the "physical therapy Neurofuncional in Evidence." There are, especially in the last decade, significant changes of paradigms, methodological and scientific rigour in research, development of new physiotherapeutic intervention strategies and greater theoretical/practical knowledge production benefiting individuals with neurological dysfunction. So, we will have the opportunity to discuss and learn about the relevant topics through courses, lectures, round tables and presentations of works with participation of renowned professionals from Brazil and abroad.

This time, we have the 3rd Edition of the COBRAFIN in Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais, where the mountains are going, caring and majestically, embrace them!

I expect all of you to share the most current in physical therapy Neurofuncional.

Are very welcome!

Fátima Rodrigues de Paula </br >
