Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is consulting an Ayurvedic doctor to help him with his knee problems. The doctor charges the supreme cricketer a sum total of ₹ 40, acording to a report in Hindi daily Dainik Bhaskar.
The explosive batsman has been battling knee pain for months and had been exploring different options. Vandan Singh Khervar, an ayurvedic doctor, who lives in the densely forested area of Lapung, which is nearly 70 km from Ranchi, is overseeing the cricketer’s recovery.
The cricketer decided to get his knee treated in a hermitage in Ranchi, after seeing the positive results with his parents’ treatment.
According to the doctor, Mahendra Singh Dhoni told him that he suffers from knee pain due to calcium deficiency.
“I charge him ₹ 20 as consultation fees and prescribe him medicines worth ₹ 20,” Vandan Singh Khervar told a news TV channel .
Dhoni has been coming to the hermitage every four days or so. He has been seeing the practitioner since a month.
“I couldn’t recognize Dhoni when he came to see me,” Vandan Singh Khervar said. It was the people in Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s entourage who told the doctor that the batter had come to see him.
Dhoni’s presence in the region makes people flock to catch a glimpse of him. To avoid creating a mad rush , Mahendra Singh Dhoni prefers to sit inside his car, takes his medicine and then obliges his fans with selfies.
“I have treated Dhoni’s parents as well,” he said, adding that they have been taking his medicines for the last three months.
