The Centre for Sports Medicine housed in Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre is dedicated to help every athlete, professional or recreational, to achieve their fullest potential and remain injury-free, through the use of sports medicine and exercise science.

Through a combination of physical testing, physical training, nutrition and mental training, we can help every individual optimise their sports performance. Our team through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, helps injured athletes to return to play in the shortest possible time, using the latest diagnostic technology combined with the human touch. Besides sports performance, our goal is to enhance the health of individuals through safe participation in sports and physical activity.
