Abstract

Nowadays, we have a very active population. In particular, we have seen an increase in recent times in the activity levels of children and the elderly; not only are numbers of participants in sport increasing in these age groups, but they are also engaging in sports at a higher intensity than previously seen in other generations. This phenomenon is responsible for the appearance of specific lesions that were unusual in these age groups heretofore.
