• Sunil Bagga, 32, was rushing down the stairs of his office to make it in time for a meeting when he twisted his foot. He felt a searing pain, but limped through it. The pain persisted and the foot became red and swollen, but all he did was apply balm . A few days later, the pain became so severe that he was unable to walk. The doctor found Bagga had injured a muscle. The injury had become worse due to neglect. Recovery, he was told, would be a long process.
  • Broken bones, if set and fixed properly, heal so well that they are as strong as before the fracture. The same is sadly not true for the other component of our musculoskeletal system – the muscle. Muscles are responsible for all the movements of our body. Bones cannot move by themselves. It’s the muscles that propel them and enable our body to move and function.
