Sports Injuries Sports Injuries

Our concept of treating these patients is

  • Treating the injury
  • Taking the patients back to peak performance
  • Identifying patients prone to injury

Pre-injury screening

Every sports person coming to our clinic with injury acts as a guide for us to enter that group of sports persons. We generally contact the coaches & parents and arrange for screening camps in sports academies/coaching centres. We have set protocols for screening players before a major tournament. We select injury prone players and put them in a rehab program so that they never come to us as patients.

Post-injury treatment

  • Conservative : 90 percent of sports injuries are manageable by rehab which includes muscle strengthening, tissue stretching, taping, modification of techniques etc. We also monitor the reintroduction of the player to competitive level (in collaboration with the coach). We aim at maintaining the muscle strength in particular and endurance in general during the rehabilitation period so that there is smooth return to the peak level.
