Musculoskeletal disorders are very common, and their consequences make an important contribution to disability. The current lifestyle promotes a lack of movement associated to a wide range of related physical and psycho-social disorders. On the other hand, there are multiple pathologies that can affect muscles, bones, and joints in a primary or secondary way, either permanently or temporarily. The resulting economic burden is considerable, with a continuous rise as the population ages. Physical rehabilitation is a holistic approach with physical and psycho-social applications in people with acute and chronic conditions, such as musculoskeletal and neurological disorders, amputations, pelvic organ disorders, cardiorespiratory issues, cancer, disability pain and dysfunction, among others. The aim of this Special Issue is to explore all the aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal disorders and physical rehabilitation processes through a multidisciplinary point of view. The Editor’s interest lies in providing a platform for the publication of high-quality papers documenting new developments and recent advantages in all fields, including repetitive motion injuries, trauma disorders, occupational disorders, overuse syndromes, neurological issues, cardiorespiratory diseases and soft tissue disorders.
Submissions on other topics are welcome and can be discussed with the Guest Editors.
