Physical assessment – pre-participation evaluation

Every individual athlete undergoes a thorough medical examination in which valuable Family history details and medical records of the particular athlete are documented in a systematic way which brings to light any hidden medical disorder which can potentially threaten the athletes’ performance and future. The physician examines the particular athlete in an elaborate fashion which includes all the vital systems such as cardiac, respiratory, musculoskeletal and nervous system. Gender determination is a part of pre-participation evaluation.

Sports performance enhancement

Conditioning of the athlete to the demands of the particular game and preparing him or her with a gruelling schedule of practice, both physical and mental, utilising the services of biomechanical experts and physiotherapists in providing subtle changes in the techniques of play, can to a large extent, lead to the improvement in the standards of the individual players.

Sports psychology

Assessing the optimal zone of functionality of each individual athlete, providing them emotional support in times of repeated failures, priming them to accept both victories and defeats gracefully, providing individual attention to female athletes who may present with complains of gender discrimination, sexual misbehaviour by fellow athletes and coaches, treating problems of drug abuse by athletes, promoting discipline and sportsmanship within the team membersare essential in the bigger stage.

Sports nutrition

Every sport has its own demands and risks. Every athlete needs a specialised diet plan which suits his/ her individual needs according to the sport. A carbohydrate rich meal is essential a few days prior to endurance sports such as Marathon, Cycling, Pentathlon, Decathlon etc. A protein rich meal is essential to enhance injury repair by the body post-exercise and post-play.
