Faster Higher Stronger

Sportspersons want to break records, not their bones. They neither want to sprain their muscles, nor suffer from some other injury and say good bye to their chosen field. But sometimes fate has it that they sustain injuries. Treatments in modern medicine are often helpless. But do not lose hope, yet.

Back to the pole, thanks to Daisman

Dija Chandran, national record holder in pole vault, is the beneficiary of the nuanced approach of Daisman Clinic towards sports injuries. Daughter of Chandran, Vazhikkadavu, Nilambur Via, Malappuram district, Kerala, Dija was suffering from static lower back pain for one year. She started getting slight back pain during practice. Later, it aggravated while sitting and standing. She consulted many doctors at superspeciality hospitals in Kerala and Coimbatore. Many orthopedic surgeons did not have an answer to her problem. They asked her to stop sports activities and take rest. She was told about the option of surgery in case of the problem getting worse. Finally, one of the orthopaedic surgeons told her about their limitation in treating her kind of condition, and referred her to us. We combined Ayurveda treatment procedures and Yoga to treat her. The condition of the patient was quite promising after two months. She was able to sit and bend the spine without pain, and started doing sports-specific exercises. After five months, she remarkably improved and was totally pain free while doing almost all activities. She went on to win the gold medal in pole vault by creating a personal record of 3.30 metres.
