Published on

Revitalizing Ayurveda through integrated scientific research and development initiatives is very much important in terms of improving the health care standard quality of life and also in view of enormous potentials and benefits this system could offer to the field of sports medicine.
The traditional system of medicine that includes marma therapy and kalari chikitsa is very much correlated with sports medicine. Marma chikitsa –the treatment of vital spots-in Kerala as Nadee- marma chikitsa and in southern Tamil nadu as adimurai. In Kerala from the time immemorial, every sports related injuries were managed with Marma and Kalari chikitsa; integral part of Ayurveda. The West better recognizes the ancient Indian medicine system now. It is less known that great strides were made in the field of surgery too. These holistic approaches have not been scientifically evaluated yet, but now it has become the need of the 21st century.

  32. 33.

This offers unlimited scope for improvement. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> Timely mobilization and exercises of the joint contributes substantially to the protection of the injured site from further complications. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> Late stage complications respond more favorably to Ayurvedic regimen. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> The high cost of treatment is the major impediment in the path of popularization of Ayurvedic treatment regimen. So cost effective alternatives should be evolved from the yet unexplored resources of Ayurvedic wisdom </li></ul></ul>
