The Italian Society of Movement Medicine (ISMM) was established in early 2008 by a group of young researchers linked by a common interest in the field of human movement.
The ISMM intends to deal from a scientific point of view with every aspect concerning the human movement. Its scope of interest extends from physiology and pathophysiology to biomechanics, rehabilitation, and pharmacology. The movement disorders to be studied comprise a vast field in Medicine: neurological disorders, orthopedic disorders, rheumatology, geriatric medicine, occupational and sport medicine, etc. This range of multidisciplinary skills and professional backgrounds will enable ISMM to assess the topic of human movement under many aspects and points of view, whilst planning innovative interventions and proposals.
The ISMM should be considered a national "network" for the exchange of experiences, data, scientific evidence and considerations on the theme of human movement. To achieve this, the establishment of regional sections, largely autonomous but acknowledging the statutory objectives of the society, is being actively promoted.
ISMM proposes among other things to:
- Organize training, CME, and specialization courses;
- Organize conferences, conventions, and national and international debates;
- Promote, organize and implement events of specific cultural interests;
- Encourage and promote these and other social initiatives that are deemed appropriate to achieve ISMM’s objectives with cultural and artistic campaigns as well as journal and monographic publications.
