FasciaL Manipulation - March

This technique presents a complete biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders. The mainstay of this manual technique lies in the identification of a specific, localised area of the fascia in connection with a specific limited movement.........


Principles of neurorehabilitation

The field of neurorehabilitation has had important and rapid advances over the last past decades, leading to novel discoveries in rehabilitation techniques and great improvements in patient care. The objective of this course is to provide physicians and researchers with the opportunity to review basic and advanced concepts of diagnostic and therapeutic tools for neurorehabilitation, and learn about the novel updates in this evolving field.



Musculoskeletal Ultrasound


Non invasive test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions via the use of sonography (high-frequency sound waves that produce images in real time) and show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, blood flowing, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body.


Shockwave Therapy


Use of a high-intensity sound wave to interact with the tissues of the body. Cascading beneficial effects such as neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up, with the objective of acting over the injured area returning it to normal functionality and pain relieve.


Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation


Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain. TMS uses electromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents using a rapidly changing magnetic field; this can cause activity in specific or general parts of the brain with minimal discomfort, allowing the functioning and interconnections of the brain to be studied. A variant of TMS, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), has been tested as a treatment tool for various neurological disorders including strokes.





The purpose of this course is to review basic neuroscience concepts and clinical evidence on the application of robotics in rehabilitation, as well as discuss novel approaches to augment outcomes further. The course employs a highly interactive learning environment to offer participants the opportunity to asks the experts after assisting a set of educational videos..


Botulin Toxin Applications


Botulinum toxin (abbreviated either as BTX or BoNT) is produced by Clostridium botulinum, a gram-positive anaerobic bacterium. Used amongst other circumstances in the treatment neurogenic detrusor overactivity, and upper limb spasticity.


Principles and Practice of Clinical Research


Basics of clinical research (such as: how to formulate a research question, how to select the study population, randomization and blinding methods) to statistical methods (data distribution and classification, statistical tests, sample size calculation, survival analysis, missing data and meta-analysis); data collection.


Scientific Publishing


How to present and build scientific research to become successful publications.

Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes and functional problems.
