Sammanfattning (abstract):
Sports provide physical, psychological, and social well-being to individuals. However, there may be a potentially damaging effect on articular cartilage with mid- and long-term exposure to sports. This chapter is aimed to critically review the existing literature regarding the association between sports participation and ankle osteoarthritis. This review demonstrates that in general, there is not enough evidence to conclude that sports increase the risk of ankle osteoarthritis. The existing literature related to this topic is scarce, and most of the studies have not controlled the risk analysis for the presence of other potentially associated risk factors for ankle osteoarthritis. Further research is needed on this topic with prospective comparative studies controlling for, at least, age, sex, body mass index, occupational workload, and previous ankle injuries. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012, 2015, All Rights Reserved.
