Clinical and etiopathological aspects of muscle and joint sports injuries Abtract This descriptive study was conducted on a group of 92 patients during January 2012 - December 2012, treated at the Sports Rehabilitation Department of NOVA VITA Medical Center, Tîrgu Mures. We investigated the incidence of muscle and joint injuries by age group, gender, region of the injured muscle and joint, type of sport.

Playing tennis at an amateur level can harm body parts like the shoulder and the elbow and can cause tendon and muscle injuries. The most affected region is the knee. Knee injuries are present in almost all sports. Nearly 40% of the injuries are ligament injuries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter
