Abstract

Muscle injuries are the most common injuries in sports (it varies from 10 to 45% depending on sport activity and quality - amateur or professional sport) [1,2]. The formation of fibrotic tissue <scar> will compromise the muscle function [3]. Despite conservative treatment presents adequate functional results in the majority of athletes who have muscle injury (especially in partial tears) the consequences of treatment failure can compromise the return to sport (especially competitive) [1].
