Identify evidence-based methodology for incorporating the PYT medical yoga model into current rehabilitation programs. Evaluate existing yoga programs for content, safety, and validity. List predisposing risk factors for & epidemiology of osteoarthritis based on the latest review of evidence. Identify the critical role that cellular inflammation & inflammatory biomarkers play in osteoarthritis development in order to understand how it can be prevented and mediated through holistic methods in medical therapeutic yoga.

Identify precursors of FGID and critical risk factors that influence cellular and genetic transcription and overall health in order to understand the historical and contemporary context and of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) intervention and how it can be used in improve orthopedic function. Describe how the two major categorical areas of CAM intervention for affecting GI and orthopedic health can effectively operationalize the holistic conceptual model for evaluation and management of all orthopaedic dysfunctions and diagnoses. Describe the “gut-brain” connection in order to understand the role that functional gastrointestinal disorders play in PYT conceptual model intervention in orthopedic rehabilitation.
