The muscular system provides support and movement due to the muscles that compose it (cardiac, striated and smooth), through muscular contraction, which is divided into slow (repetitive) and fast (for high intensity and resistance), also by Isometric and isotonic tension (eccentric and concentric). Muscle injuries (tears) are related to the practice of physical and sports activity, which can occur at any time due to bruising (trauma) or bloating (hyperextension), and when they occur they generate edema, ecchymosis - hematoma, functional impotence and deformation in its architecture. Timely management as well as classification and optimal imaging approach allow an improvement in therapeutics - recovery and return to physical activity - competition of the patient.
