About Us

Our History

The Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine (SOMM), formerly the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine is an educational charity that was formed over 30 years ago to promote the seminal work of Dr James Cyriax.

Working as the Honorary Consultant Orthopaedic Physician to the Department of Physical Medicine at St Thomas’ Hospital in London for many years, Dr Cyriax was the pioneer in musculoskeletal medicine.

The Society was formed in 1979 to continue his work and since then there’s been an explosion of interest in musculoskeletal therapy. This has led to a significant development in treatment techniques, imaging, clinical reasoning and patient management. The Society has been instrumental in promoting education for clinicians in this field

The SOMM now provides a complete pathway of postgraduate courses for medical practitioners and allied health professionals and advanced nurse practitioners that run primarily throughout the UK. Invitations from further afield are always considered. In recent years we have been invited to run courses in Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Malta, Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong.

Our Syllabus

The core syllabus is continually developed and advanced in the light of new evidence and research by the committed team of tutors and supporting researchers.
