Neeraj Chopra recovering without complications: AFI president

first_imgStar javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra is recovering from his elbow surgery without complications but he will not be rushed into any competition, including the World Championships later this year, Athletics Federation of India President Adille Sumariwala said Thursday.The 21-year-old Neeraj, who won a gold in the Commonwealth Games as well as Asian Games last year, was successfully operated by celebrated orthopaedic surgeon Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai on May 2.The arthroscopic surgery on his throwing right hand was done to remove bone fragments from his elbow joint. His recovery is likely to take at least three months, putting his participation at the prestigious Doha World Championships (September-October) in doubt.”There were some bone fragments (in Neeraj’s elbow) which were removed. He has started his physiotherapy with Heath Matthews. He must have done four sessions by now. I will discuss Neeraj’s progress with Matthews and doctor Pardiwala tomorrow,” Sumariwala said.”He (Neeraj) is doing everything except throwing. He is undergoing rehabilitation. The daily report is good, so far so good, there are no complications. We are hopeful (of his complete recovery),” he added.Matthews is a renowned physiotherapist and head of sports medicine at Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai. He has treated the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi.Asked if the AFI is hopeful of Neeraj competing in the World Championships, Sumariwalla said, “We are taking step by step, there is no point jumping the gun. We are not pushing him (to do things).advertisement”We are not even talking to him about the World Championships. If we do that he would want to throw hard. We will go step by step. We told him you do so much of rehabilitation and we will see what to next.Also Read | PM Narendra Modi wishes for Neeraj Chopra’s speedy recovery post elbow surgerylast_img read more
