Injuries are a common occurrence in professional sports and most teams have a staff of athletic trainers to minimize such injuries and provide immediate aid on the field. However, intervention by a team of sports injury specialists becomes necessary for any injury related to sports to not only provide definitive treatment but also for physical & psychological rehabilitation, so that the sportsman can return to playing in the shortest possible time.
The new department will have sports medicine specialists, orthopaedicians, physiotherapists and psychologists in addition to other supportive specialties so as to provide comprehensive treatment in case of any kind of sports related injury. The department will also have specialized programs to boost the performance of athletes such as sports fitness training and conditioning, performance upgradation, back to track program and sports injury prevention programs.
Sunny Gaur, Managing Director, Jaypee Hospital said, “In keeping with the vision of our founder chairman, Shri Jaiprakash Gaur, we are bound to provide comprehensive medical care at competitive rates to the masses. It is with pride that I can confidently say that since our inception, we have been able to fulfill our commitment. Furthermore, we are moving ahead and today have established a state-of-the-art department of sports medicine and rehabilitation. We have a team of specialists who will be dedicated towards providing specialized treatment of sports injuries in the department.”
Dr. Manoj Luthra, CEO, Jaypee Hospital said, “Sports medicine requires a team effort, gone are the days when one individual alone used to treat injuries. A full team for sports medicine includes speciality physicians & surgeons, athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches and others. It is our endeavor to provide this kind of team concept to sportsmen at this centre.”
Inaugurating the Department Kapil Dev, Former Indian Cricket Team Skipper stated, “The facility will be very useful for upcoming sporting talent who can build their performance to international level through endurance programs at this centre. Sports injury is very common primarily because of high intensity physical activities. What separates the athletes today from our time is the access to world class sports medicine centers like Jaypee Hospital. Such facilities not only help in a speedy rehabilitation but will also prolong the playing career of an athlete.”
