HYDERABAD: Elbit Medical Diagnostics launched a Sports Medicine speciality clinic - Sports Nutrition and Fitness Nutrition Clinic, at its new facility on Road number 12, Banjara Hills. Kannan Perumal, COO, Elbit Medical Diagnostics; Prof Maj Dr S Bakhtiar Choudhary, renowned city based Senior Sports Medicine Specialist and Dr B Sujeeth Kumar, General Surgeon, briefing media said, this first of its kind clinic will offer comprehensive Sports Medicine care in the city, at a Press Conference on Friday.
Senior Sports medicine, Fitness and Nutrition consultants with enormous experience and expertise will extend the latest care in sports medicine to Junior and senior players from all sports disciplines, Martial artists, adventure enthusiasts, Modern & Classical Dancers. The Clinic will counsel and guide sports persons to a successful sporting career, help achieve their full potential, protect them against & minimise sporting injuries, aid to remain at the peak of the performance and prolong their career.
Speaking on the occasion Dr Bakhtiar said that the counseling varies for each individual sports person depending upon his body and special needs and therefore has to be tailor made. Therefore a made for all prescription can’t fit everyone. As the country is inching towards making a mark at Olympics, there is a general dearth of sports medicine specialists and specialised Sports clinics like this. For a sports person to blossom to his full potential, it’s just not a good trainer who makes the difference, equally important is the role of sports medicine specialist to groom him into top athlete.
In our city there are 30,000 kids involved in various sports, of which 90% are vitamin ‘D’ and Vitamin B 12 deficient, which impacts their career in the long run, this is just one aspect but serves to highlight the woeful lack of sports medicine guidance amongst our budding sport persons.
