Sports injuries may result from a lack of conditioning, insufficient warm-up, inferior training methods or other reasons. Rehabilitation for such injuries helps in restoration of the injured area to a completely functional state and eliminates the original cause for injury. Sports rehabilitation is useful not only to treat sports injury but also in prevention of injury.Early identification and correct treatment protocol prevents the injury from becoming chronic , which may result in prolong recovery ,and high dropout rate from sport.
Sports injury rehabilitation is useful for symptom related and overall conditioning of professional and amateur athletes,and children and
adults who actively participate in sports.
Our treatment regimen begins with a comprehensive physical evaluation and a detailed assessment of the injury based on our medical knowledge and orthopaedic expertise ,followed by protocol based treatment approach. Individualized treatment programs are given for better recovery. In addition, programs with exercises which help to reduce the likelihood of re-injury after regaining specific sport are also incorporated in the comprehensive rehabilitation protocol.
Physical therapy or physiotherapy is an important aspect of sports rehabilitation. It helps alleviate pain of the injured person and regain movement and strength in parts of the body. The treatment involves use of stretches, exercises, correction of bio-mechanics using specialized equipments and conditioning programs.
Electrical modalities form an important part of treatment regime and used as an adjunct to other treatment techniques during acute stage of injury.

To understand more, please read FAQ section.
1. How did you think of Golf injuries and fitness?
As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I was treating different kinds of injuries including Golf injuries. Something that struck me was that most Golfers, used to come with certain set of injuries, which were of chronic nature. When I started playing golf from last few years, I could see these problems from a player’s point of view and started studying Golf bio-mechanics and their implications on health. This gave me a great perspective about the factors causing these injuries and their management.
2. Do players really get injured in Golf?
Yes, they do. It’s a myth that Golf is not an athletic sport as it looks passive to onlookers. Watching
sport as it looks passive to onlookers. Watching Professional Golf Tournaments on T.V. or live may give an impression that the game is not that physical, given the effortless ease with which the players are able to execute their shots. The truth is that to execute a game like that, a rigorous training and fitness schedule is followed. On an average an amateur player swings the club around the body at approx. 90 miles/hour, much more for a professional player, which gives a twisting, bending, forward and backward thrust to the trunk and upper body, putting a tremendous amount of shearing forces on the body. If muscles and tissues are not conditioned to withstand these forces, they may give way resulting in injuries. This is especially true for modern swing technique.
3. What is Golf specific fitness and conditioning?
I have identified the muscles working in different parts of the swing. The fitness specific to Golfing revolves around increasing the flexibility, strength and endurance of these structure muscles, tissues and joints.
4. What are the common Golf injuries?
There are different set of injuries in professionals, amateurs and recreational Golfers due to different mechanisms involved. Most injuries are low back, wrist, elbow and shoulder, and the incidents differ in respective categories.
5. How to prevent common Golf injuries?
Flexibility, endurance and strengthening are the keys to prevent sport related injuries. Moreover, they also give stability and good structure to bring out powerful and satisfying Golfing.
6. How differently do you handle these injuries?
My understanding of Golf biomechanics has helped me in better evaluation of these injuries from sports point of view, hence enabling me in treating them better.
7. What about nutrition?
This probably goes for all levels of Golfing – Good hydration and balanced food at least 2 hours before the game helps maintain sugar level in the blood.
8. Do you also adjust swing if you see it being part of the problem?
No. I never do that when a Golfer comes to me with a specific Golf related health issue. I only treat the present Orthopedic problem and also correlate it with structure, setup and swing. If I identify this part faulty and contributing to the problem, I recommend the Golfer to go to the Golf instructors and convey him/her my concerns. At the end of the day, the Golf instructor is the best person to take care of the golf swing.
9. So you don’t correct the swing and the structure part?
No that’s the job of Golf instructor. I just take care of the health aspect of Golfing. My knowledge of Golfing biomechanics helps me in better understanding of these dynamic injuries for appropriate management.
10. Any message for Golfers?
“Swing Safely” especially beginners and children.
