Abstracts: Introduction: Internet is one of the fastest growing media for Human Resources and Development (HRD). Computer has become an essential part of our Activities of Daily Livings (ADLs) at one hand and other hand, prolonged computer usage has increases the risk of occupational hazards. Prolonged Static work at computer system is a causative factor for poor postural ergonomic, structural derangements and dysfunction commonly at neck, shoulder and low back structures to develop functional limitation and progressively functional disabilities. The basic health education (HE) by means of ergonomic advises and exercise therapy may have efficacy to promote, prevent and cure for such FDs. However, internet itself can be a mode of HE system to be provided at workplace to cut the time & cost together. Purpose of Study: To find the efficacy of IBM for FDs of the computer users. Materials: Internet supported computer, web-site (www.ptmovements.com), web pages, basic health assessment form, Self Reported FD Questioners, Neck Disability Index (NDI) & Back Pain Functional Scale (BPFS), Study Design: Experimental Clinical Trial Methodology: 1256 computer users (M=867) participated online and assess for inclusive & exclusive criterions. Internet based self reported FDs questioners used to assess FDs in prior and post to two weeks of tailor made treatment program. Data Analysis: significance of FDs and impact of IBM on FDs was analyzed with SPSS -17, LOS set at 0.05 or CI 95 % Result: mild to moderate prevalence of FDs was higher neck & shoulder as compared to low back structures. The IBM has shown efficiency to reduce the level of FDs at NDI, and BPFS. Discussion: The internet based health education (IBHE) is well possible to deliver and to reduce the FDs. The advantage of time & cost effective approach in IBM has facilitated keen interest among computer users. Conclusion: The IBHE is well efficient and prospective to develop scopes of “workplace wellness” to promote, prevents, and cures for occupational diseases & disorders.

Role of Physiotherapy in Haemophilia – an Evidence Based Practice By: Indian Journal of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.

Journal

ABSTRACT
Haemophilia is hereditary bleeding disorder due to absence or de ciency of clo�ing factors in the blood. Haemophilia is characterized by intra-articular bleeding, often requiring immobilization, which may result in muscle atrophy and impaired proprioception. Patients with haemophilia are at risk of haemarthrosis, soft-tissue haematomas, bruising, retroperitoneal bleeding, intra-cerebral haemorrhage, and post-surgical bleeding.
Knee, ankle and elbow joints are more commonly a ected by haemophilic bleeding. People with haemophilia who have had many bleeds tend to develop a distinctive posture that may include: exion deformities of the elbows, knees, and hips; an exaggerated arch in the back plantar- exed ankles; pelvic asymmetry due to leg length di erences; and varying amounts of muscle wasting. Physiotherapy is integral in the management of people with haemophilia. A key goal is to help maintain mobility, muscle strength, and balance. An individualized physiotherapy can raise the quality of life of a patient with haemophilia through increase of the physical function, pain reduction and prevention of bleeding.
The 80% of haemophilia patients have no access to pharmacological therapy and part of remaining 20% only receive treatment after a bleeding episode. In both cases, patients develop physical consequences before reaching adulthood require physiotherapy treatment to improve quality of life.

TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE MULTI COMPONENT EXERCISE PROGRAMME ON DIZZINESS CAUSED BY BPPV PATIENTS

Shahanawaz SD, Rathod Priyanshu Research Papers

Background of the study: In BPPV the patient was having dizziness and it also loss the balance it may be because of primary sensory information is the visual system vestibular input work together with visual and somato sensory system to maintain postural control (Merla and Spaulding, 1997). In BPPV studies it was also observed that dizziness and balance was effected but the previous studies are focusing the specific exercise maneuverers like brandt daro exercises, cawthrone exercises ,ocular and vestibular components .

Objective of the study: To develop the multi component exercise programmes and validate
Methodology: Content validity was judged by the panel of raters on the relevance of the T test items to the representativeness of interventional exercises for BPPV. The 21-items with 21 questions pertaining to the major problem in BPPV was used to assess. The study was ethically approved by the Dr. D.Y. Patil Vidyapeeth, Pune .And before all consent was taken .The questionnaire (exercises) was a 21-item based on retrospective studies of the vestibular rehabilitation and previous clinical experiences of the clinicians. Results: Validity is applied to a test with judgment concerning how well a test does measure what ìt purports to measure. More specifically, it is a judgment based on evidence about the appropriateness of inferences drawn from test scores. Validation is the process of gathering and evaluating valìdity evidence.

To Find out the Relationship Between Dizziness and Balance in Benign Paroxysomal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): A Co Relational Study

Shahanawaz S. , Priyanshu V. Rathod Research Papers

Background of the study: The vestibular system is both a sensory system and a motor system. As a sensory system, the vestibular system provides the central nervous system (CNS) with information about the position and motion of the head and the direction of gravity. The CNS uses this information, together with information from other sensory systems. The otolith organs can signal tilts with respect to gravity and slow, drifting movements, but only when these movements are linear, rather than rotational. Objective of the study: The study aimed at investigating the correlation between dizziness and balance in the BPPV subjects by using outcome measure Dizziness Handicap Inventory and Berg Balance Scale Methodology: Total 56 subjects were enrolled Age group is 18-65, Both Males and Females. Able to experiencing symptoms for longer period of 3 months, Able to transfer from sitting to standing and move independently. Able to tolerate the exercise ,and we carried out to descriptive analytical ,co relational study .From this study we have taken the data of the subjects who have treated for 9 weeks by using the exercise protocol with outcome measure of dizziness handicap inventory and berg balance scale. Results: Validity was tested by assessing the degree to which DHI total score and DHI sub scale components i.e physical, functional, emotional correlated with the Berg balance scale, by Spearman correlation coefficient. Conclusion: The study was concluded that the better the improvement in dizziness, the better is the balance of dizziness caused by BPPV, it also observed that there is more strong co relation functional component.

To Know The Effectiveness Of Experimental Protocol Vs Brandt Daroff Exercises On Dizziness In Benign Paroxysomal Positional Vertigo

Shahanawaz SD* ,Priyanshu.V.Rathod** Research Papers

Abstract:
Background and Aim: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)1 is considered the most common peripheral vestibular disorder, affecting 64 of every 100,000 Americans. Women are more often affected and symptoms typically appear in the fourth and fifth decades of life. In 1980, Epley proposed that free-floating densities (canaliths) located in the semicircular canals deflect the cupula creating the sensation of vertigo. This is well documented in his Canalithiasis Theory4,5. Although these canaliths are most commonly located in the posterior semicircular canal, the lateral and superior canal may also be involved Patients with BPPV complain of vertigo with change in head position, rolling over, or getting out of bed, and the vertigo is often side specific. Aim of the study is to know persons with vestibular disorders experience symptoms of dizziness and balance dysfunction, resulting in falls, as well as impairments of daily life. Various interventions provided by physical therapists have been shown to decrease dizziness and improve postural control. In the present review, we will focus on the role of physical therapy in the management of BPPV symptoms of dizziness. Methodology: In the procedure Firstly ,patients will divided into two groups Group A and Group B and all the patient were assessed the pretreatment score and post treatment i.e (0 Weeks and 3 week and 6 weeks) by using the DHI ,The Patients will be randomly allocated Group A Patients was receive exercise protocol, Group B Was given the Brandt daroff exercise .this exercises were given on daily basis .After completion of 6 weeks of the treatment ,Both Group A and Group B were compared Statistical software: statistical software namely SPSS 15.0. Results and Conclusion: The study concluded that designed exercise protocol is effective to reducing dizziness in BPPV patients by measuring the DHI Scale. [Shahanawaz SD NJIRM 2015; 6(6):24-26]

TO KNOW THE EXERCISE PROGRAMS USED ON DIZZINESS IN BENIGN PAROXYSOMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO PATIENTS

Shahanawaz SD1*, Rathod Priyanshu V2 Research Papers

Background of the study: Humans relay on information from muscle and joint receptors and the vestibular apparatus to balance and body position .BPPV is one of the most common causes vertigo .Dizziness arises when orientation in the space is disturbed knowing where the body is in relation to the environment and being able to move efficiently dizzy requires the integration of as set of delicate sensing devices (i.e. proprioception, visual, vestibular) that feed information about the environment and a motor system
Objective of the study: To review the exercise programme used in the treatment of dizziness on BPPV patients
Methodology: A literature search was conducted on December 2014 in electronic databases MEDLINE, SCIELO, EMBASE Cochrane library, Potentially relevant studies were identified by the following search strategy “proprioception, vestibular, visual exercises, vestibular rehabilitation, cawthrone exercises, brandt daroff exercises, dizziness handicap inventory, balance outcome measure.
Results: Total 113 studies were retrieved from the initial search strategy .After title and abstract screening
28 studies identified as potentially eligible .However after full text screening 15 studies were excluded from this study due to following reasons, usage of surgical interventions, usage of drugs and usage of other outcome measures
Conclusion: The study concludes the effect of the vestibular rehabilitation exercises using various protocols, and outcome measures, the protocols used was the cost effective.
Hence the study suggest that the exercise protocols will be compare with the multi component exercise programs

Central Sensitization in Chronic Low Back Pain: A Narrative Review

Dr.Priyanshu v. Rathod Research Papers

Abstract:
Objective: The aim of this narrative review is to examine the available literature related to central sensitization (CS) and altered central pain processing in chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients.

Methods: Literature was searched using many electronic databases. Additionally, reference list of most prominent articles were searched to increase the search accuracy, as much as possible. Studies which are evaluating the concept of CS in conservatively treated CLBP patients were included.

Results: Results of studies evaluating the responsiveness to various types of stimuli in CLBP patients are contradictory. Some studies in CLBP patients have showed increased pain responses after sensory stimulation of body parts outside the painful region, when some other studies report no differences between patients and healthy controls. Studies evaluating the integrity of the endogenous pain inhibitory systems describe unchanged activity of this descending inhibitory system. Conversely, studies examining brain structure and function in connection with experimentally induced pain provide initial proof for changed central pain processing in CLBP patients. Also inappropriate beliefs about pain, depression and/or pain catastrophizing, may lead to the development of CS.

Conclusions: Most of the literatures suggest that the CNS becomes centrally sensitized in a subgroup of patients with CLBP. However, the significance of this involvement is just starting to become clearer. This could be an active topic of future research. More studies are necessary for providing definite evidence for the clinical importance of CS.
Key Words: Central sensitization, central pain processing, chronic low back pain, hyperalgesia, cortical reorganization, widespread pain, temporal summation.

PHYSIOTHERAPY INTERVENTION IN VESTIBULAR MIGRAINE: AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY

International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharma Research

In this study exercise protocol is effective for headache and migraine related disability in VM patients. Exercise protocol is not effective to reducing vestibular symptoms in VM patients.

Background: The prevalence of migraine, according to the criteria of the International Headache Society (IHS), is at least three times higher in those with vertigo. Patients with various forms of disequilibrium and some manifestations of migraine may have a condition known as vestibular migraine (VM), also known as migraine-associated vertigo or migrainous vertigo, migraine related Vestibulopathy, have all been applied to roughly the same patient population. Migraine is a very common, chronic neurological disorder, affecting about 6 % of men and 15 % to 18 % of women with the highest prevalence between the ages of 25 and 55. The public health burden of migraine is high because migraine attacks are associated with temporary disability and substantial impairment in activities. Headache experts have proposed that regular, moderate aerobic exercise improves cardiovascular fitness and helps to reduce the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks in with or without aura. Whitney suggested that vestibular exercise is beneficial for migraine, but it reduce the vestibular symptoms in migraine.

Method: Randomized Controlled Sample of 30 subjects with vestibular migraine was taken for the study. The subjects were divided into two groups. Outcome measured HIT, DHI were taken pre and post treatment. Group A is experimental group. And Group B is control Group. Group A received design protocol for thirty days, five days a week till six weeks, each day one session. Group B received shoulder and Neck ROM exercise with ten repetitions.

Results and Discussion: Independent Sample T-Test shows significant difference in HIT scale. P value is 0. 046. It shows no significant difference in DHI scale. P value is 0. 235.
