Patellofemoral cartilage injury of the knee in a professional footballer: Prevention

In this article we address the different aspects relative to the prevention of patellofemoral cartilage injury in one knee of a professional footballer

We outline the behaviour of cartilage in the face of physical activity for its importance in the prescription of exercise in both prevention and rehabilitation. As for the description of the injury, the conditioning factors will be outlined, both intrinsic and extrinsic, and then in continuation preventive measures are proposed to mitigate the determinant factors of the injury. Because prevention work will be applied after the onset of the injury, we will talk about a level of "Tertiary Prevention".
