The International Myopain Society 

The International Myopain Society [IMS] formed in 1992 and is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, international, interdisciplinary medical organization for research scientists, physicians, other health care professionals, individuals in training toward a health-related career, institutions, foundations, and commercial companies interested in exchanging ideas, conducting research, or learning more about soft tissue pain syndromes like myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia.

The IMS is a membership organization in service to the medical community and supports International  Myopain Congresses and conferences. Society members receive a subscription to the Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain (JMP) which is a high-quality, quarterly scientific publication specific to fibromyalgia and myofascial pain research.

The IMS mission brings together an international community of health care professionals, researchers, educators, and others to improve care and transform delivery of treatment to those suffering from soft tissue pain through the promotion and exchange of globally recognized research, education, and innovation in patient care.

It provides outstanding international meetings and facilitates development of regional symposia on myofascial pain and fibromyalgia. Visit to learn more.
