Muscle injury is the most frequent injury in soccer and one of the athlete’s worst “enemies”. After the Player gets injured, one of his first questions is “when will I be able to play again” ? Well, this does not have an easy answer and all of us try to get the athlete fit as soon as possible. In order to achieve this, we use the most varied techniques and one that have gained popularity in recent years has been the injectable therapy of regenerative substances.
But why, how, when, where and witch substances should be applied and currently used? Will they have strong scientific evidence? Remember that non-evidence does not necessarily imply its absence and that our first principle when treating an athlete should be “to do no harm” (primum non nocere!).
Considering this issue, we try to show with this Flowchart how we deal with injection therapy in Muscle injuries based on our experience in recent years, reminding that, the most important aspect for the recovery is Exercise!
