Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.

This study looks at the effects of exercise programs on physical factors and safety in adult patients with cancer and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) or bone marrow transplantation (BMT). A systematic search was performed in the PubMed and Web of Science databases (from inception to 26 August 2021). A review was carried out following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic review and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) checklist. The methodological quality of the included studies was assessed with the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) scale, based, in turn, on the Delphi list. A total of 25 randomized controlled trials studies were included, comprising 1434 patients. The most significant result of this systematic review is that exercise program interventions are safe and produce positive changes in cardiorespiratory fitness, muscle strength, and the functional mobility-state in adult patients with cancer and HSCT or BMT. Only 3 patients from the 711 participants in the exercise interventions (i.e., 0.42%) reported adverse events related to exercise interventions. Moreover, exercise training programs may have a cardiological and muscular protective effect, as well as a healthy effect on the prevention and control of transplant complications, improving health outcomes.
