Pathologies not linked to sport activity

Calcifications and exostosis

With this term we mean the concretions reportable at different structural levels.

Usually, with the term calcification we refer to the “free” concretions: namely, to those calcifications that don’t have any relations with the osseous structures. On the contrary, the exostosis is a concretion that, relating directly to the osseous structure, changes its profile.

Calcifications and exostosis are a frequent cause of inflammatory sports pathology, and especially of the post traumatic ones.
