Track 1: Diet and Physical Health

There are growing concerns about the burden of disease as a result of unhealthy diets and physical inactivity. A significant proportion of our population takes too little exercise and many people’s diets are unbalanced with, for example, too much fat, sugar and alcohol. This in turn contributes to high and rising levels of obesity and an increase in avoidable illness and health inequality. Poor diet and physical inactivity cause 310,000 to 580,000 deaths per year and are major contributors to disabilities that result from diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, and stroke. Obesity is a risk factor for several chronic diseases, the economic and social consequences of this obesity epidemic could be overwhelming. While many factors have contributed to the obesity epidemic, prevention efforts should focus on helping people reduce their calorie intake and increase their physical activity.Physical health can be improved by doing various types of yoga.Kriya yoga, is an outward physical manifestation of awakened kundalini, such as a spontaneous body movement related to Kundalini energy flow. Sahaja yoga is a unique method of meditation based on an experience called Self Realization that can occur within each human being, through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. Kripalu yoga is a gentle hatha yoga practice with a compassionate approach and emphasis on meditation, physical healing and spiritual transformation that overflows into daily life.Geriatric physical therapy exercises help elderly patients achieve or maintain high levels of physical health as they age by focusing on ailments like arthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, and joint soreness and other chronic diseases.

Track 2: Disability and Management

Rett syndrome is a rare genetic postnatal neurological disorder of the grey matter of the brain that almost exclusively affects females but has also been found in male patients. The clinical features include small hands and feet and a deceleration of the rate of head growth. Repetitive stereotyped hand movements, such as wringing and/or repeatedly putting hands into the mouth, are also noted. People with Rett syndrome are prone to gastrointestinal disorders and up to 80% have seizures. They typically have no verbal skills, and about 50% of affected individuals do not walk. Scoliosis, growth failure, and constipation are very common and can be problematic.

The signs of this disorder are most easily confused with those of Angelman syndrome, Cerebral palsy and Autism. Rett syndrome occurs in approximately 1:10,000 live female births in all geographies, and across all races and ethnicities.

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that originate in the neck region and branch off to form most of the other nerves that control movement and sensation in the upper limbs, including the shoulder, arm, forearm, and hand. Brachial plexus injury (BPI) is an umbrella term for a variety of conditions that may impair function of the brachial plexus nerve network. The majority of pediatric and adult brachial plexus injuries are caused by trauma.These can be effectively handled by pediatric rehabilitation.

Neurological disabilities are caused by damage to the nervous system (including the brain and spinal cord) that results in the loss of some bodily or mental functions. Heart attacks, infections, genetic disorders and lack of oxygen to the brain may also result in a neurological disability.Neurological physical therapy is a very effective way to deal with neurological disabilities.

There are many hundreds of categories of neuromuscular disease. Traumatic Brain Injury (ABI) and Epilepsy are two of the most common neurological disabilities. Neurological disabilities may affect a person’s capacity to move and manipulate things. A way a person acts, the way in which they process information or how they tolerate and express feelings may also be significantly changed.The effects of many neurological conditions can vary greatly from person to person as well as from time to time for the same person.

Track 3: Occupational therapy and physical rehabilitation

Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as physiatry or rehabilitation medicine, is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities.

Occupational Physiotherapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.The main goal of occupational therapy is primary healthcare.

Chronic Diseases are a major public health problem in the United States.Occupational Therapy can be the best method to deal with any such diseases.Occupational Physiotherapy focused on client-centered care and providing optimal independence and satisfaction with performance, is an essential part of any comprehensive pain management program.

Track 4:Rehabilitation techniques

Neurological physical therapy is a doctor-supervised program designed for people with diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient. Electrodiagnostics is a type of testing that allows us to get a better view of how well the connections from the eye to the brain are working. In cases of amblyopia and strabismus, head injury, brain injury and in conditions where a person is non-verbal or has trouble responding to health care providers, as in the case of infants, electrodiagnostic testing can give insights into the degree a signal is getting from the eyes to the brain. Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically supervised program that helps improve the health and well-being of people who have heart problems.Cardiopulmononary rehabilitation can also be help Rehab programs include exercise training, education on heart healthy living, and counseling to reduce stress and help you return to an active life.Pediatric rehabilitation is about more than building strength and improving function. It’s about inspiring children to gain the skills and confidence to reach their full potential.  And it’s also about supporting families throughout the rehabilitation process.Orthopaedic rehabilitation is a powerful tool for both restoring a patient's physical abilities and reducing pain in all kinds of musculoskeletal disorders. By using an individualized approach for the various conditions that have led to dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system, it leads the patient through the various stages of recovery. Primary health care is most important aspect of every rehabilitation program.

Track 5: Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury is an injury to the spinal cord resulting in a change, either temporary or permanent, in the cord's normal motor, sensory, or autonomic function. Common causes of damage are trauma or disease.Although a spinal cord injury is usually the result of an accident and can happen to anyone, certain  risk factors may predispose you to a higher risk of sustaining a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injury medicine can help in dealing effectively with spinal cord injury. Seating devices are an aid/equipment for people with disabilities to allow them to perform their task which cannot be otherwise done by them. Sprains and strains are common injuries that share similar signs and symptoms, but involve different parts of your body. A sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments-the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in your joints. A strain is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. Strains often occur in the lower back and in the hamstring muscle in the back of your thigh. Pain management is very essential for both.Initial treatment for both sprains and strains includes rest, ice, compression and elevation. Mild sprains and strains can be successfully treated at home. Severe sprains and strains sometimes require surgery to repair torn ligaments, muscles or tendons.Many rehabilitation services can be helpful during this time.There are many other ways to deal with spinal cord injury like clinical physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Track 6: Exercise and Trauma

Balanced diet and exercise is a key to maintain good health. The benefits of exercise may have more reason to be sung after research reveals that it can help patients with anxiety disorders to reduce their symptoms. Exercise during pregnancy can be useful in preventing the risk of gestational diabetes and pregnancy-related high blood pressure, as well as lessen the symptoms of postpartum depression. In addition, it might reduce the risk that your baby is born significantly larger than average (fetal macrosomia).Prenatal yoga can be very beneficial during pregnancy to keep the body in  proper shape.Balanced physical therapy can be useful to deal with trauma related conditions.There are many risk factors associated during vigrous exercies.Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities.Physical medicine and rehabilitation can be helpful during this time.

Track 7: Sports Injury and Rehabilitation    

Sports injuries can happen anywhere in the body, especially if your forte involves testing the laws of physics or gravity. The most common sports injuries tend to be fairly minor: bruises, sprains, strains, and more. Still, there are more serious injuries for athletes depending on the region and type of activity. Sports Injury Rehabilitation helps athletes effectively treat pain and return to normal function. We emphasize the importance of early injury recognition and treatment. In conjunction with receiving a course of treatment, specific strengthening and flexibility exercises will be implemented. Progressive exercises are included in rehabilitation services to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state. Sports physiotherapy  treats a range of conditions including acute sports injuries, strains, sprains, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs, tendonitis, hand injuries, shoulder dislocation, foot or ankle dysfunction and surgery rehab.

The anterior cruciate ligament is an important, internal, stabilizer of the knee joint, restraining hyperextension. An anterior cruciate ligament injury is the over-stretching or tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. A tear may be partial or complete. A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.Neuromuscular medicine is an effective alternative in this case. Hospice and palliative medicine is a formal subspecialty of medicine in the United States that focuses on pain management, relief of suffering and end-of-life.

Track 8: Biosciences in Rehabilitation   

The Biosciences in Rehabilitation are basic sciences which aim to explain body injury, adaptation and repair from the molecular to the cellular, organ system and organism level and to identify targets for biomedical interventions to improve body functions and structures. There is a need to organize rehabilitation and related research into distinct scientific fields in order to overcome the current limitations of rehabilitation research. Based on the general distinction in basic, applied and professional sciences applicable to research in general, and the rehabilitation relevant distinction between the comprehensive perspective based on WHO's integrative model of human functioning (ICF) and the partial perspective focusing on the biomedical aspects of functioning, it is possible to identify 5 distinct scientific fields of human functioning and rehabilitation research. These are the emerging human functioning sciences and integrative rehabilitation sciences from the comprehensive perspective, the established biosciences and biomedical rehabilitation sciences and engineering from the partial perspective, and the professional rehabilitation sciences at the cutting edge of research and practice. The human functioning sciences aim to understand human functioning and to identify targets for comprehensive interventions, with the goal of contributing to the minimization of the experience of disability in the population. The biosciences in rehabilitation aim to explain body injury and repair and to identify targets for biomedical interventions.Biosciences in rehabilitation involves various rehabilitation services like cancer rehabilitation,mental rehabilitation,orthopaedic rehabilitation,surgical rehabilitation and many more. Cancer rehabilitation  is a comprehensive interdisciplinary program developed to provide outpatient rehabilitation to all cancer patients and survivors in need, whether you are newly diagnosed or long finished with treatment. Mental rehabilitation is designed for people (aged 16 years and over) with a moderate to severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder. Orthopaedic rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy used to treat problems with the musculoskeletal system whereas Surgical rehabilitation after a person has undergone some surgery

Track 9: Pain and injury management

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. It occurs when an external mechanical force causes brain dysfunction. Mild traumatic brain injury may cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain that can result in long-term complications or death.

Complex regional pain syndrome is an uncommon form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. Complex regional pain syndrome typically develops after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.The cause of complex regional pain syndrome isn't clearly understood. Treatment for complex regional pain syndrome is most effective when started early. In such cases, improvement and even remission are possible.

The groin is an area of your hip between your stomach and thigh, where your abdomen ends and your legs begin. The groin area contains five muscles that work together to move your leg. Groin pain is any pain in this area, typically as the result of an injury from physical activity or sports. A pulled or strained muscle in the groin area is the most common injury among athletes.The Achilles tendon is one of the longer tendons in your body, stretching from the bones of your heel to your calf muscles. Many Achilles tendon injury are caused by tendinitis, in which the tendon becomes swollen and painful. In a severe Achilles tendon injury, too much force on the tendon can cause it to tear partially or rupture completely.Sports physiotherapy efficiently deals with such injuries.Many institutions provide such rehabilitation services.

Track 10: Cancer and Rehabilitation

Cancer as a disease process reminds us often unexpectedly of our mortality. It frequently compromises our patient's vitality. It is also a burden emotionally and physically on family, friends, significant others, community, and other social resources. Cancer rehabilitation helps a person with cancer regain and improve the abilities that may have changed after cancer treatment. The goal of rehabilitation is to help a person remain as independent and productive as possible. Rehabilitation can improve the quality of life for people with cancer by improving physical strength to help offset limitations caused by cancer and cancer treatment, increasing a person’s ability to care for himself or herself and reducing support needed from caregivers and also reducing the need to stay at a hospital. Many cancer centers and hospitals offer rehabilitation services to their patients or your health care team can help you find local rehabilitation services. Patients and family members should remain active and informed partners in the rehabilitation process and seek the services they need.Cancer Rehabilitation Program uniquely incorporates rehabilitation with primary healthcare and specialty care to meet the needs of cancer patients.Rehabilitation Nursing also play a vital in cancer rehabilitation.

Track 11 : Prosthetics & Orthotics

Orthotics and prosthetics management is the evaluation, fabrication and custom fitting of artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. Prosthetists and orthotists deal with the assessment, diagnosis and management of the whole of the body. Prosthetists provide artificial limbs (prostheses) to people who have all or part of a natural limb missing. Orthotists provide supportive braces and splints (orthoses) to people with various conditions of the limbs or spine. Prosthetists and orthotists work with people of all ages and with different requirements.

Orthotics is a specialty within the medical field concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses. An orthosis (plural: orthoses) is an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system.An orthotist is responsible for primary healthcare providing the prescription, manufacture and management of orthoses. Prosthesis (plural: prostheses) is an artificial device that replaces a missing body part, which may be lost through trauma, disease, or congenital conditions. Prosthetic amputee rehabilitation is primarily coordinated by a prosthetist and an inter-disciplinary team of health care professionals including psychiatrists, surgeons and with  physical therapist communications.
