Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
We are pleased to announce this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IF: 3.390) focusing on “Physical Therapy in Geriatrics”. This is a timely issue considering the current environmental and contextual effects on the health of older adults. The ongoing pandemic, climate change, and chronic disease burden on older adults are pressing public health issues. Physical therapy has an important role in preventing physical decline and treating the effects of reduced physical activity associated with social distancing requirements due to COVID-19 and pre-existing low levels of physical activity among older adults. Physical therapists have had to innovate to support therapy and exercises online and address the issues associated with COVID-19 during and post-infection.
We aim to disseminate the ideas, challenges, efforts and effects of physical therapy interventions and treatments delivered to older adults and the innovations implemented during these challenging times.
Dr. Edgar Ramos Vieira
