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.”
