‘This is the best therapy’: What you need to know about chiropractic

Sanjay Amrutka is the head of Sanjay’s Physiotherapy Group, which provides physiotherapy and massage to the world’s elite athletes.

His practice, founded in 2014, is the first of its kind in India.

The team uses a combination of chiropractors and massage therapists to train and provide the best physiotherapy for the elite athletes that compete in international competitions.

The athletes are chosen by a team of physiotherapists, massage therapists and nutritionists, who meet in the gymnasium.

The physios and massage workers spend three months working with athletes, stretching, strengthening and performing anaerobic exercises to increase the body’s endurance and strength.

In some cases, the athletes can even receive a full massage on their own, with the physios’ help.

Sanjay uses massage therapy to train the athletes to improve their endurance and performance, and to avoid injuries.

In the first season, Sanjay has trained more than 100 athletes and is working on the next season.

“We are trying to reach out to athletes to train them,” Sanjay says.

“There is a lot of pressure on the athletes.

If they fail in their training, they can become injured and lose their place in the team.”


Sanja says the team aims to train athletes on the strength and endurance of the athlete.

“Our training is about physical performance.

It is not about speed.

We are not trying to get athletes to be faster than they are.

Our main focus is to train their endurance, strength and flexibility.”


Sanjay says he does not have any restrictions when it comes to the training of the athletes and the physiotherapeutic techniques used.

“All we ask is that they train in the same way that they do during competition.

They are not restricted.

We just ask them to stay within the guidelines.”


As the athletes reach the end of their training and are ready to start competition, they are encouraged to wear special wristbands, which allow them to keep their arms free during the training.


Each athlete is assigned a coach who will lead the training and the performance of the team.

“The coach’s job is to work with the athletes in order to help them achieve their goals,” says Sanjay.

“It is a way of making sure that the athletes are doing the best that they can.”


When an athlete is ready to begin competition, the coach will help them complete a 10-minute warm-up, which is a short physical challenge that involves stretching and strengthening exercises.

“If they are ready, they take part in the warm-ups.

They take part to the next 10-15 minutes.

They can also take part during the competition,” says Amruta.


After the warmup, the athlete performs one of the following exercises: stretching and lifting one leg and two hands.

“After this, the body is ready for the next exercise,” says the physiotherapy professional.


When the athletes have completed the 10- to 15-minute stretching and strength training session, the team begins their performance sessions.

The physiotherapy specialist will work on the athlete’s body, helping them to improve the speed and agility of their movements and to focus on their muscles.

“They perform their training in the right way,” says Mr. Amruto.

“I give them time to rest and then the next day I get back to work.

They get a good workout in the morning.”
