Kerala government is looking into the possibility of offering its traditional ayurvedic treatment to Brazilian footballer Neymar for his fractured vertebrae.
Amidst rumours in a section of media that Brazilian Football Federation has sought Kerala help, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told The Indian Express that the idea to give ayurvedic treatment to Neymar was mooted by Kerala Football Association (KFA).
“When they (KFA) approached us with the idea, I have asked the health department to examine the issue. Heath Minister V S Shivakumar has convened a meeting of higher officials,’’ said Chandy.
The chief minister said the health department has downloaded the details regarding the nature of the injury Neymar has sustained. The department has prepared a preliminary report. “I would have another meeting with the minister tomorrow (Wednesday). If it is possible to give ayurvedic treatment to Neymar, we would make an offer to the Brazilian Football Federation in that regard.”
Kerala Health Secretary Dr K Ellangovan said the idea was only a wish of football fans in Kerala. Ellangovan further said though fracture has to heal itself, ayurvedic treatment can boost the recovery.
