Conventional physiotherapy and exercise/training interventions have been widely explored in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. Furthermore, evidence-based clinical practice suggests that the combination of both interventions can lead to the best results. However, the therapeutic approach must respond to the demands of our changing society, especially in this global scenario. The influence of social media, new technological devices, and the access to information of patients require an in-depth exploration of the feasibility of the novel approach in the management of musculoskeletal disorders.
The main objective of this Special Issue is to provide scientific evidence on new intervention programs whose rapidly spreading popularity, due to social media promotion, is not always supported by scientific literature. The use of some devices or interventions by celebrities draws the attention of millions of people trying to imitate them. Nevertheless, some of these devices or interventions could be dangerous and are not a suitable fit for everyone. In this Special Issue, the accepted manuscripts will contribute to elucidate which of the most popular novel approaches are safe and effective.
