It is our pleasure to present this Special Issue on “Sports Physiotherapy: Treatment for Acute Musculoskeletal Injury and Chronic Diseases”. Musculoskeletal acute injuries are a usual health problem worldwide. Generally, they occur during physical activity practice or physical daily activities, and they can affect both sexes and all age ranges (i.e., children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly). Early physiotherapy rehabilitation treatments (e.g., Cryotherapy, bandage, lymphatic drainage), could be crucial for an optimal recovery process. On the other side, chronic diseases (e.g., Cancer, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, metabolic diseases), needs a holistic approach to improve or maintain the level of health and quality of life of the patient. The physiotherapy interventions (e.g., Manual therapy, exercise programs, range of movement recovery), are an important part of this global treatment focused on the patient as a person. We hope that this Special Issue on “Sports Physiotherapy: Treatment for Acute Musculoskeletal Injury and Chronic Diseases” will be received by physiotherapy researchers as a good chance for publishing their results. We encourage you to send work focused on physiotherapy techniques to improve patients with acute musculoskeletal injuries or chronic diseases.
