Mumbai Association of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation was started in 2009 by the efforts of Dr. B D Athani, Dr. T Sreedhar and Dr. Anil Kumar Gaur for promoting the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
It was registered as a charitable trust in year 2010 under the Societies Registration Act 1860. Since its inception, the association has organized many camps, patient welfare activities, conferences, workshops and lectures under its banner.
