Abstract

SPORTS MEDICINE & AYURVEDA

*Dr. P. L. Alaekhya

ABSTRACT

Physical activity and exercise is one of the main wellsprings of health and well-being. Exercise can stimulate one’s immune system and provide vitality, strength, and stimulate the natural healing mechanisms in the body. A study has revealed that 30% of Indian population are engaged in various sports. About 60% of sportsmen sustain various injuries on the field. More than 30% of the above are rendered permanently unfit to pursue their career due to Injury aggravation, improper medication and unscientific rehabilitation and rest are not fit for existing treatment modalities in true sense. In recent years Western society has recognized the increasing dangers of physical inactivity. The foresight report issued by the UK's Government Office for Science, on 17th of October 2007, highlighted the unsustainable health and economic costs of a nation that continues to be largely sedentary. It has forecasted the incremental costs of this inactivity to society, businesses and also the cost of paying for this impact, which could be unsustainable as no existing group of medical specialists is equipped with the skills and training to deal with this challenge. To reflect this paradigm the speciality has rebranded from Sports Medicine to Sport & Exercise Medicine. Ayurvedic regimen though effective is yet to have proportionate representation in the field of sports medicine. Cost effective alternate modalities should be explored, evolved and worked out from yet unexplored resources of Ayurvedic wisdom for making it more acceptable and popular all over the globe.

Keywords: Sports Medicine, Sports – Exercise Medicine, Ayurveda.
