The study of the athletic action, knowledge of training methods, biomechanical analysis, knowledge of materials, epidemiological data, and preventive factors are some of the important aspects of the cultural heritage that qualify under sport traumatology.
The population’s tendencies to practice sport have increased exponentially in recent years. This stimulates the need for the knowledge and treatment of multiple traumatic injuries that various sports can cause during exercise. Same as in other sectors, also in Sports Traumatology the benefits of the studies and research applied to high-level athletes decrease as a result of all patients with practical applications of great importance and utility.
The muscle and tendon injuries, joint injuries, diseases and increasingly recurrent and traumatic overload of bone tissues, cartilage, and ligaments, are the areas of most interest to those involved in sports injuries and sports traumatology.
The knee joint is also very stressed in particular for those who do not practice sport activities, who walk normally and those who must be functional for a long time. Skeletal, ligament, meniscus, and degenerative trauma, and deviations of axis represent the forms of pathological involvement.
The advent of arthroscopy with closed and minimally invasive techniques has changed the history of recent knee surgery, as well as the advent of new models and prosthetic devices has given a big boost in joint replacement surgery.
The orthopedic specilists from the orthopedic of the knee and sports traumatology unit provide as a service all this knowledge in order to provide appropriate therapeutic indications and innovative surgical solutions ranging from arthroscopic techniques, the repair of cartilage, the tendons and muscles, the use of biotechnology and prosthetic replacements.
