The Society of
Musculoskeletal Medicine


Years of Experience


The Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine provides a comprehensive programme of postgraduate courses, from stand alone courses to a full Masters Degree validated by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. Our courses are aimed at physiotherapists, GPs, consultants, podiatrists, osteopaths and other healthcare registered professionals – UK & overseas.

The Society is a leading provider of musculoskeletal therapy and training. Set up in 1979 to carry on the pioneering work of Dr James Cyriax, The Society is focused on advancing study in the field and opening the door for new practitioners and therapists.

The Society’s Foundation syllabus is divided into three units that include the principles of assessment, clinical diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions affecting the ten areas of the body: Cervical Spine, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist/Hand, Lumbar Spine, Hip, Knee, Ankle/Foot, Thoracic Spine, and the Sacroiliac Joint. The Advanced Modules build on the foundation principles to enhance skills in Injection Therapy and Advancing Clinical Practice.

In recent years, we’ve run courses across Ireland, Italy, Spain, Norway, Arabia and Hong Kong and we’re always looking to expand the future of musculoskeletal medicine.
