Sports medicine is the medical subspecialty that is generally concerned with one overarching mission: the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illness and injury related to participation in any sports and athlete exercise. To accomplish a mission as comprehensive as this much depends on having a multidisciplinary, complementary approach to health care delivery that uses both operative procedures and nonsurgical techniques. Sports medicine provides a means of enhancing athletic performance while preventing athletic injury. All sports have a risk of injury. In general, the more contact in a sport, the greater the risk of a traumatic injury. Most frequent sports injuries are sprains, strains, and stress fractures caused when an abnormal stress is placed on tendons, joints, bones, and muscle.

Orthopedic Rehabilitation focuses on problems of the musculoskeletal system - muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Orthopedic rehabilitation is a form of therapy that treats a large variety of conditions that affect the skeletal and muscular systems. Orthopedic clinicians diagnose, manage and treat injuries of the musculoskeletal system and rehabilitate patients right after orthopedic operations. Orthopedic Rehabilitation is essential to restore the patient's activity, strength and motion right after injury or surgery. Orthopedic patients typically have deficiencies and weaknesses which could be eliminated or alleviated via specifically targeted workouts. A wide range of orthopedic injuries and disabilities, including amputations, joint replacements, fractures, neck and lower back disorders and other orthopedic complications, are treated with orthopedic rehabilitation.

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues—without needing to make an incision. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered part of pathology instead of medical imaging. In knee surgery also medical imaging plays an important role. The major orthopedic manufacturers of the global market concentrate much on medical imaging devices than other orthopedic implants and orthopedic medical supplies.The devices used in the pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic spine surgery, and veterinary orthopedics are in high demand in the global market.
Besides Ultrasound and medical imaging, this track discusses the following topics as well. Ultrasonography, Musculoskeletal imaging in rheumatology, Ultrasound elastography, 3D Ultrasound imaging for musculoskeletal tissues, Bone Mineral Density Measurements Using DXA, Novel Metal Suppression Techniques, MR Arthrography, Tomosynthesis. Advanced orthopedic spine imaging devices are used by the by knee specialists, pediatric surgeons and the related surgeons of pediatric orthopedics. The global orthopedic device market and orthopedic implants were valued at $29.2 billion in 2012 and are expected to reach $41.2 billion by 2019. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.9 % over the next five years.

Orthopedic medical devices are very successful in restoring mobility, reducing pain, and improving the quality of life for a large number of individuals. More than one million joint implants are currently produced every year, with a growth rate of nearly 9%. Lifetime and safety expectations continually increase, which place ever tighter requirements on the development and manufacturing processes. Both shape and roughness are critical parameters that must be controlled to ensure proper function and lifetime of orthopedic implants. The result is maximized lifetime for a wide variety of implants, from hip balls and cups to knees, elbows, and spinal implants. Joint replacement products include devices for hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and finger arthroplasty procedures. Orthopedic medical devices are a great innovation in the field of orthopedics.

Orthopedic trauma care covers the spectrum of simple isolated fractures to severe life threatening accidents with multiple broken bones. The tumors take the form of cartilage-capped bony projections or outgrowth on the surface of bones. It is characterized as a type of overgrowth that can occur in any bone where cartilage forms bone. Tumors most commonly affect long bones in the leg, pelvis, or scapula. Osteonecrosis is a process where the blood flow to the bone cells greatly decreases; the cells may die, causing the bone to collapse, because the bone and bone marrow of the human body are made of living cells that need a steady blood supply to stay healthy. Osteonecrosis can lead to pain, arthritis and limited use of affected joints. Some people may even need joint replacement surgery. A muscular dystrophy is a group of muscle diseases that weaken the musculoskeletal system and hamper locomotion. Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue. Atrophy and weakness of the limb muscles are extremely common in rheumatoid arthritis, the most likely causes being inhibition and disuse as a result of painful movement.

Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that has symptoms of pain, limited movement, swelling and pain in connective tissues. There are almost 50 million people in the United States who experience some type of arthritis. Arthritis is chronic or rarely changes and can progress slowly, and unfortunately, many of the causes of arthritis are unknown. Arthritis literally means inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia. This track will discuss Arthritis and its different types as well as treatment modalities.Ankylosing spondylitis, Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Septic arthritis, Gout and pseudogout, Physical and occupational therapy, Arthroscopic surgery, Rheumatoid arthritis.
The global market revenue for advanced orthopedics grew from $35.3 billion in 2013 to $36.4 billion in 2014. Additionally, the industry will see a compound annual growth rate of approximately 3% through 2019. By that year, the advanced orthopedics market is expected to reach revenues of $42.2 billion and the number of orthopedic medical supplies and orthopedic implants will be manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers in large scale.

Arthropathy is a collective term for any disease of the joints. A myriad of arthropathic disorders can afflict the joints, including sacroiliitis which causes inflammation in the sacroiliac joint, Charcot's joints which lead to the degeneration of a joint due to nerve damage, and arthrogryposis which results in joint contractures. The enteropathic arthropathies are a group of rheumatologic conditions that share a link to gastrointestinal (GI) pathology. The inflammatory myopathies are a group of diseases that involve chronic muscle inflammation, accompanied by muscle weakness. Another word for chronic inflammation of muscle tissue is myositis. Muscle inflammation may be caused by an allergic reaction, exposure to a toxic substance or medicine, another disease such as cancer or rheumatic conditions, or a virus or other infectious agent, Orthopedic nursing should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practitioner with care in such conditions. The chronic inflammatory myopathies are idiopathic, meaning they have no known cause. They are thought to be autoimmune disorders, in which the body’s white blood cells (that normally fight disease) attack blood vessels, normal muscle fibers, and connective tissue in organs, bones, and joints.
Under this track, various topics will be discussed which will explore various aspects of these diseases such as Diagnosis of myopathies, Spondyloarthropathy, Anti-synthetase syndrome, Reactive arthropathy, Enteropathic arthropathy, Diabetic arthropathy, Crystal arthropathy.
Worldwide incidence of inheritable myopathies is about 14 percent. Of all inheritable myopathies, central core disease accounts for 16 percent of cases; nemaline rod myopathy accounts for 20 percent; centronuclear myopathy accounts for 14 percent, and multicore myopathy accounts for 10 percent.Worldwide incidence of inflammatory myopathies is about 5–10 per 100,000 people.
Connective tissue diseases are actually a group of medical diseases. A connective tissue disease is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a primary target of pathology. The connective tissues are the structural portions of our body that essentially hold the cells of the body together. Connective tissue disease refers to a group of disorders involving the protein-rich tissue that supports organs and other parts of the body, Orthopedic nursing and care should be taken by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practitioners. Examples of connective tissue are fat, bone, and cartilage. These disorders often involve the joints, muscles, and skin, but they can also involve other organs and organ systems including the eyes, heart, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and blood vessels. Bursitis and tendinitis are conditions that are also known as soft tissue rheumatic syndromes. A syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together and indicate a particular problem. This type of syndrome produces pain, swelling, or inflammation in the tissues and structures around a joint, such as the tendons, ligaments, bursae, and muscles. Soft tissue rheumatism is one of the most common and most misunderstood categories of disorders facing the Orthopedic Surgeon and the pediatric surgeon. Among the more common types are sub acromial bursitis, epicondylitis, trochanteric bursitis, anserine bursitis, and fibromyalgia. The keys to the diagnosis of soft-tissue rheumatism are the history and, more importantly, the physical examination. Extensive laboratory testing and radiographs are not as helpful in evaluating patients with these complaints
There are over 200 disorders that impact connective tissue. Injuries can cause connective tissue disorders, such as scars. Others, such as Heritable connective tissue disorders, Autoimmune connective tissue disorders, Scurvy, Diagnosis of connective tissue disorders, Tendinitis and Enthesitis, Epicondylitis, Tenosynovitis and Bursitis, Myofascial Pain, Tennis Elbow. The Connective tissue disorders and surgeries related to pediatric orthopedics can be treated by pediatric surgeons.
As awareness and acceptance of soft tissue rheumatism among physicians and the general population increases, the diagnosed and drug-treated population will grow by 1.7 million from 2010 to 2020.Orthopedic manufacturers are also aware of the present statistics and manufacturing orthopedic implants and orthopedic medical supplies according to the present day demand.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include Tender, warm, swollen joints, Morning stiffness that may last for hours, Firm bumps of tissue under the skin on your arms (rheumatoid nodules). Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues. In addition to causing joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis sometimes can affect other organs of the body — such as the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels, at this point in time orthopedic nursing should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practitioner with utmost care.
This track discusses the Rheumatoid Arthritis, its physiology and possible treatments such as Histopathology – Synovium, Cartilage, Bone and Synovial Cavity, Inflammatory Mediators in RA, Steroids, and NSAIDs, Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, Immunosuppressants & TNF-alpha inhibitors, Tendon repair & Joint fusion, Total joint replacement, Pediatric Rheumatology and Pediatric orthopedics. This process of surgeries will be done by the Orthopedic specialists, knee specialists, pediatric surgeons and orthopedic surgeons.
The global rheumatology therapeutics market was estimated to be worth $17.1 billion in 2011, having grown at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.4% from 2005, and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% to $23.8 billion by 2018. The orthopedic implants, Rheumatology equipment, and orthopedic medical supplies are in great demand and have a large scale export in the global market and are being manufactured at a very large scale by the orthopedic manufacturers.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips, and spine. Osteoarthritis often gradually worsens, and no cure exists. But staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints and this condition in pediatric orthopedics and orthopedic spine can be treated by pediatric surgeons. It occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints breaks down leading to pain, stiffness and swelling pain. Osteoarthritis (OA) is caused by aging joints, injury, and obesity. OA symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and involves medication and exercise. Deficiency in knee joints can be treated by the knee specialists by performing knee surgery.
This track discuss about different bone disorders and most specifically about Osteoarthritis, other topics include: Bone density measurement, Hip osteoarthritis and osteoporotic fracture, Osteochondrodysplasia, Osteoarthritis, Pathophysiology of Osteoarthritis, Bone Fracture, Marrow adiposity, Knee osteoarthritis, Myeloma bone disease, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold support, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold support. Orthopedic spine surgeries are leading surgeries in global orthopedics.
There were more than 1.6 million total trauma fixation procedures performed in the United States last year. The majority of the trauma-related bone fixation procedures were in the shoulder, upper arm, forearm, wrist, hand, fingers, hip, femur, tibia/fibula, ankle, foot and toes and knee, which can be fixed by the knee surgery by knee specialists. The knee surgery is very well carried out by the advanced orthopedic implants manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers.
Every bone, tissues, and tendon in the body is a part of the skeleton system and a potential contributor to orthopedics. Disorders are ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain and fibromyalgia. These are only a few of the known orthopedic disorders. There are as many treatments for orthopedic disorders as there are problems and injuries in the muscles, ligaments, and joints. One of the most significant orthopedic health problems today, low back pain, can be caused by overuse and strenuous activities, improper use and exposure to continual vibrations. Traumas or injuries to the back can cause chronic low back pain and degeneration of the vertebrae is a definite cause of low back pain. Orthopedics and its related disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again. Pediatric Orthopedics also deals with the surgery related diseases.
Under this track, we are going to discuss various disorders which affect the overall skeleton system which includes: Osteochondroma, Muscle Injuries, and Disorders, Low Back Pain, Pain Relief Therapies, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Joint Infection, Spinal Disorders & Therapies, orthopedic spine, Dupuytren’s Contracture.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis with the aging of the US population, the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed arthritis is expected to increase in the coming decades. By the year 2030, an estimated 67 million (25% of the projected total adult population) adults aged 18 years and older will have arthritis.
Rheumatology represents a sub-division of the field internal medicine and pediatrics, which is devoted to diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases including some clinical problems in joints, connective tissue disorders soft tissues and autoimmune diseases) like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Soft Tissue Rheumatism, fibromyalgia etc. Rheumatology is multidisciplinary in nature and it relies on close relationships with other medical specialities. In recent time speciality of rheumatology has gain advances in terms of the development of biological drugs with novel targets, advancement in the basic science of musculoskeletal diseases and improving imaging techniques. Physicians who specialize in rheumatology are called rheumatologists.
