Abstract:

The ancient medical system called Ayurveda is one of the main systems of Alternative medicines of Indian origin. This is found very practical even in the modern era of medicines due to its unique unbeatable philosophy. We cannot observe any branch of modern system of medicines containing the explanations of sports medicines two centuries ago and obviously the same lack in the literatures of Ayurveda. But the field of medicine is becoming more and more interdisciplinary in nature in this modern era of medicine by incorporating the knowledge from different fields. The field of sports medicines as a separate department was developed recently in the modern medicines. Thus practitioners of Ayurveda also started using the term sports medicines and selected many classical time proven formulations that were found suitable for prescribing for sports injuries of the modern world. They also incorporated many formulations and methods using in different traditional schools related to martial arts and developed many modern medicaments based on them. This paper aims to explain this emerging field by citing certain such traditional formulations and modern medicaments.


Keywords: Alternative Medicines, Ayurveda, Sports Medicines.
