No two human bodies are same. Individual Patient provides few distinguishing details about their issues which are acknowledged carefully. Sometimes pain is there only in evening, worst during morning, and pain goes away with rest/with activities. Different reasons are there for production of pain in different positions, similarly different treatment is required to sort specific issues, and hence therapeutic requirements are also different for different individuals.
Every sport has different demands from the body and different physiological systems are more active in different sports. Different areas are prone to injuries in different age groups as well as in different sports. Some muscle and joints are overused and whereas others are underused. Components of physical fitness also need to be addressed separately. Level of physical performance is also different for different age groups and different levels of competition. Sports physiotherapist has clear understanding of all these issues, they are expert to find out the weak links and they know how to convert them into strong ones in safe environment.
Nobody wants to get injured. Athletes are always willing to put any effort for injury prevention, but injuries are part of sports. No human body is perfect; there is always some difference between left and right side of the body in terms of strength and flexibility due to the pattern of dominance and excess utilization of one side. Balancing the weaker side minimizes the risk of injury and drives the athletes towards better physical performance in sports. Visit OsteonPhysio and get yourself assessed to know the exact causes. Even twins don’t have same body structure, so avoid copying others.
Commonly injured areas in different sports:
Primary areas getting affected Lower back (Lumbar Spine), Shoulder (Rotator cuff injury, SLAP tear, Tendonitis), Golfers Elbow, TFCC in Wrist, Knee Meniscus injury, Planter fasciitis in foot.
Lower back pain in golfers can be because of many reasons, but primary culprits are flexibility, stiffness in spine and hip and core muscle weakness.
Rotator cuff muscles are group of 4 muscles which works at shoulder joint to provide active stability throughout the range of motion due to injury these muscles are not able to keep the shoulder stable.
Tendons are the terminal part of the muscle which attaches to the bone when they are inflamed in this condition. This can have various underlying biomechanical causes.
It is an inflammation at the junction of muscle and bone at the inner side of elbow. Common reasons are poor flexibility in forearm. This is seen commonly in beginners and occasional golfers.
This structure provides stability around the wrist, it get damaged due to overstretching of wrist while playing.
Meniscus the shock absorbing cushion in joint, this gets injured due to unaccustomed twisting action at knee in weight bearing position. This can produce pain inside and outside of joint and if overlooked leads to secondary Osteoarthritis
Planter fasciitis is inflammation of Planter Fascia which is I twisted sling like structure in the sole. It can produce pain under the under the sole or along the inner aspect of heel.
Lower back issues, Groin pain, Shoulder (Rotator cuff injury, SLAP, Impingement, Tendinitis), Tennis elbow, Ankle sprain.
Lower back issues in cricket are primarily due to overuse injury and excess load imposed by sporting moves like fast bowling, batting in slightly bent position, wicket keeper getting up after every ball.
Shoulder injuries in cricketers are there due to excessive throwing, peculiar bowling action, overtraining, over exertion.
Collateral ligament injury in knee is due to awkward landing while fielding, twisting over fixed foot when spikes get stuck in turf while bowling or fielding.
Tennis elbow is an inflammation at the outer aspect of the elbow which produces pain around elbow and forearm. Probable reasons are use of heavy bat, over twisting of arm while bowling and biomechanical faults.
Hamstring strain occurs due to explosive nature of the game in fast bowling, fielding, running between the wickets. Muscular insufficiency of gluteal muscles is also one important contributing factor.
Ankle Sprain is tearing of ligaments which provides stability to the ankle it happens due to sudden change direction of movement, poor balance.
Squash and Tennis: ACL, Meniscus Issue, Shoulder (Rotator cuff injury, SLAP, Impingement), Planter Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis.
ACL, Meniscus Issue, Shoulder (Rotator cuff injury, SLAP, Impingement), Planter Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis.
Meniscus the shock absorbing cushion in joint, this gets injured due to unaccustomed twisting action at knee in weight bearing position. This can produce pain inside and outside of joint and if overlooked leads to secondary Osteoarthritis.
Achilles tendonitis is inflammation at heel cord and its attachment. Artificial flooring, muscular imbalance, compromised flexibility are the contributing factors.
Runners knee, Patellar tendinitis, ITB friction syndrome, Planter fasciitis, Shin splint.
: Runners knee, Patellar tendinitis, ITB friction syndrome, Planter fasciitis, Shin splint.
Runner’s knee is irritation in and around the knee cap. Contributing factors are Muscular Imbalance, Compromised flexibility, Negligence of warm and cool down in training, Biomechanical errors.
Patellar tendonitis (Jumper’s knee) is inflammation at the tendon below the knee cap, rapid progression in training, improper shoes, biomechanical errors, faulty running pattern are the contributing factors.
Iliotibial band (ITB) frictional syndrome pain in outer aspect of knee outer aspect of thigh are the peculiar feature, it gets aggravated in winters, excessive foot pronation while running, improper shoes , imbalance between inner and outer thigh muscles are the contributing factors.
commonly develops as a result of over training. Bony pain is there along with raised temperature at lower aspect of leg, too much training, too hard training, too soon progression, insufficient rest/ recovery period, electrolyte imbalance, improper footwear, flat foot, pronated foot like biomechanical anomaly are the common contributing factors.
We provide conservative treatment of various orthopedic conditions in non-invasive (Non medicinal and Non-Surgical) manner through comprehensive Osteopathy and physical rehabilitation approach.
It includes a series of test and the analysis is based on visual examination, how different joints in the body are, moving and which muscles are flexible/ tight, which muscles , joints are producing / limiting/compensating the movement. How strong the core muscles are there, how is the smoothness in the movement, how well coordinated movements. Symmetry and balance between right and left side of the body.
Due the pattern of physical activity certain muscles in the body are working more and overloaded whereas other muscles in the body are underworking or inhibited. Continuation of the same leads to tightness in some muscle and mind forgets how to use the muscles which creates unnecessary load on musculoskeletal system. With use of Myofascial release (MFR) therapy and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Ergonomic modification we can reverse these changes and provides you the optimum structure for optimum function.
All of us are aware of the fact to get a good mileage we need servicing of our cars and bikes and we use our body as machine but never thought of servicing it. We just do dusting and polishing which is not good enough for a car also. This is like your car mechanic knows, what to do to prevent any harm to the vehicle or how to optimize vehicle’s performance. We work with the principles of biomechanics which is a completely evidence based science to optimize your performance.
It is customized solution to foot which is based the pressure distribution around the foot. Foot scan is done first to evaluate the pressure distribution around the foot based on the scanning, insoles are designed which are inserted in shoes which makes the distribution of pressure uniform across the sole and removes the unnecessary stress coming on focal points in the feet.
Other than this it is very important and useful intervention in correcting the biomechanics of legs, knee, and thigh and hip.
Osteopathy is a patient centric system in health care sector which specializes in diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders. Osteopath adjusts the bony framework so that blood circulation is proper to nourish and construct body parts. Osteopathy embraces four tenets that, when considered as a whole, define its approach. These four tenets are as follows: (1) the body is a unit; (2) the body has self-healing, self-regulating mechanisms; (3) structure and function are interrelated; and (4) rational osteopathic treatment which is based on applying these first three tenets to the individual patient.
It is a gentle hands on approach with an integration of evaluation and treatment. It balances musculoskeletal, digestive, respiratory, urogenital, lymphatic vascular, and dysfunction. Certain tension pattern develop due to scar, posture, illness, adhesion, internal injuries in surgery/pregnancy. Tension pattern leads to series of compensation in the body. This chronic irritations leads to structural and functional problems e.g. alteration of rib movements, imbalance of forces on spine, altered posture, reduced breathing capacity. This therapy restores the normal pattern and optimizes the function.
It is an alternative therapy which relieves pain and tension by gentle manipulation of skull to harmonize with a natural rhythm in central nervous system. It improves awareness and movement in the body and is a very useful clinical approach in chronic pain syndrome, headaches.
This hands-on approach includes a wide variety of techniques for mobilization and manipulation to asses and treat different musculoskeletal conditions.
Drs. Janet G. Travell (1901–1997) and David G. Simons (1922–2010) introduced the concept of trigger point’s myofascial release therapy. This approach eases up the tension in overloaded tensed muscles and relives the excruciating trigger points. This improves the overall flexibility of the individual, prevents overuse injuries in athletes. This is a keystone for posture correction.
Physiotherapy is well known practice worldwide. However in India amongst the local population there is a perception that it is electrical machine based treatment with some exercises, which is not a complete picture. Primarily it is a combination of exercise therapy, manual therapy and electrotherapy but there are some adjuncts as well like Taping Dry needling etc.
Kinesiotaping method was developed by Dr. Kenzo kase from Japan in 1970s.It has various applications in sports injuries to provide stability and support to the injured structure. In non-athletic population it helps to improve lymphatic and blood circulation in different affected body part.
Dry Needling is an approach where acupuncture needle is inserted into the painful trigger point or tender point in the muscles which creates a twitch response in muscle and eases it up.

Answer: Sometimes surgery is unavoidable, but for every good Orthopaedic expert conservative treatment is the first choice. Different age groups have different orthopedic issues, Medicines/injections/Surgery/Physiotherapy are the treatment options for them. Safest treatment option without any side effect is Physiotherapy. As per international standards Physiotherapy is advised before and after surgery for almost every orthopedic surgery. Pre-operative therapy improves the prognosis of Surgery and reduces the stay in hospital after surgery. Post-operative Physiotherapy helps in restoration of function in a safe and efficient manner and reduces the complication of surgeries.
Answer: Physiotherapy is a globally recognized field in health care sector.
Following are some international recommendations about physiotherapy based on latest researches. Which proves it to be the best choice of treatment.
Manual Therapy is the first choice of treatment for Neck Pain (Bone and Joint Decade 2000–2010 Task Force on neck pain and Its Associated Disorders.
Physiotherapy is the first treatment of choice for Shoulder pain as per British Medical Journal 2013.
Physiotherapy is the first treatment of choice in Spinal Stenosis (Where the canal space is compromised for nerves and blood vessels in spine).American Physical Therapy Association (2015).
Structured exercise and Spinal manipulations are preferred choices of treatment for Disc prolapse (North American Spine Society, 2012)
In 2014 Osteoarthritis Research Society International published guidelines for the treatment of Osteoarthritis which includes following Physiotherapeutic Intervention in osteoarthritis biomechanical correction, exercises (land-based and water-based) strength training, Electrotherapy (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, Ultrasound and Neuromuscular electrical stimulation).
In Tennis elbow supervised Exercise therapy is the first treatment choice (The Scientific World JournaL, 2012).
Answer: After any surgery Physiotherapy is a must now. We provide these services with utmost care and individual attention.
