LUC­KNOW: A sem­i­nar on sports medicine was con­ducted at the Sashas­tra Seema Bal head­quar­ters on Thursday where Prof Ashish Ku­mar, head sports medicine at KGMU, was the speaker. “Sports in­juries do not only hap­pen to sportsper­sons. Even rid­ing a bike can give in­juries such as ten­nis el­bow – a known in­jury among ten­nis play­ers. Ac­cel­er­at­ing a bike has sim­i­lar im­pact on a mus­cle such as tak­ing a back­hand shot,” said Prof Ku­mar. The KGMU has re­cently con­sti­tuted a sep­a­rate depart­ment of sports medicine and its OPD will start from Friday. “The ded­i­cated OPD will cater to the spe­cific needs of sports in­jury pa­tients,” said Ku­mar, adding: “Ev­ery week, I get such cases where non-play­ers are di­ag­nosed with sports in­jury.”
