Welcome word

Attendees, guests, and colleagues—welcome!

We are delighted to invite you to the 26th ISMST World Congress, which will take place June 6-9th 2024 in Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam.

The international ISMST congress is a podium for connection and getting up to date on shockwave therapy. Our intention with this conference is to help those who are new to this medical field gain knowledge and experience this treatment modality, as well as educate those who have extensive knowledge about the winding road to success. Our hope is that by the end of our conference, you gained knowledge on when and how shockwave therapy is used around the world. During this event, we encourage you to make contacts and new connections that will reinforce your feeling of inclusion. If we can be of any assistance in this endeavor, then please feel free to reach out.

Welcome to Amsterdam

The founding

When this society was founded, there were no international cooperations of physicians and researchers dealing with extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT).


The main purpose of the ISMST is the exchange of the experiences and the knowledge. ESWT has become a frequently used treatment in various indications, many devices have been developed, the treatment protocols became confusing and the outcome of many studies


In conclusion, the ISMST is a platform for knowledge exchange and communication for ESWT, the vehicles are annual ISMST Congresses, ISMST Basic Research Meetings and ISMST Certification Courses, and on the other hand the permanent support with news at our homepage.
