Sharing his Journey, Sathish Kumar Sivalingam, Indian Weightlifter, 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist said, “After my injury at the Asian Games, the hospital in Jakarta advised two months of complete rest. They were of the opinion that I could probably start training after three to four months. Upon arriving back to India, my Ayurveda treatment started at Haoma Wellness under Dr. Shaji Kannoth and I simultaneously was working on my return to sport rehabilitation with Invictus Performance Lab. Within four days of combined treatment and multiple experts working with me, the pain reduced significantly and I was able to move around freely within 10 days. With another 10 days of treatment left, I aim to come back stronger and start training keeping the 2020 Olympics as my goal.”
“I am extremely privileged to be able to get valuable support from experts belonging to several cross-disciplinary functions. They have not only helped me in enhancing my performance capability but have also helped me with my injury and recovery management. I thank my coach, Vijay Sharma and the Indian Weightlifting Federation, and GoSports Foundation for all their support and belief in me. I would also like to thank Invictus Performance Lab and their team of experts who have been instrumental in enabling my return to competition. I am quite satisfied with my recovery from my injury through the combined expertise of the teams at Haoma Wellness and Invictus Performance Lab. I strongly feel such seamless collaborations between teams from various domains of sports science, the federations, coaches, and all stakeholders are the need of the hour in order to foster the athlete development ecosystem in the country which will help create more achievers and medal winners consistently”, said Sathish expressing his gratitude and calling for more collaborative efforts.
