Sub Themes for the Symposia

Injury Prevention is a crucial aspect of an athlete’s career. Injuries are caused by either intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Mapping the pattern of injuries particular to the sport can provide valid information for the coach and trainers to help the athletes train in a certain way, by inculcating new and research-oriented modules for injury prevention. It is vital to include injury preventive models in an athlete’s training for their well-being.

Optimal Performance is determined by an athlete's physical health, mental well-being, training and other external factors. Aspects such as agility, speed, endurance, balance, strength, flexibility, coordination, mindfulness, and decision-making are major determinants of performance. Achieving and maintaining optimal sporting performance is a key factor for determining the longevity of the sporting career and well-being of athletes. 

Sports Rehabilitation is the restoration of sporting abilities to a pre-injury state. Sporting injuries are of various intensities and can be detrimental in many cases. The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to prevent the extent of injury, reduce or reverse the functional loss and impairment, and prevent reoccurrence. Rehabilitation is a highly individualized and sport-specific procedure to restore holistic well-being and the sporting abilities of the athlete.
