Exercise is an important factor in maintaining health and wellness. Exercise has been demonstrated to help prevent chronic disease, treat symptoms associated with chronic disease, and in some cases help treat chronic disease itself (i.e., the use of “exercise as medicine”). However, disease-specific effects of exercise/the impact of exercise interventions is still an area that requires further research. A better understanding of what exercise prescriptions are best in various chronic diseases, and the effects of exercise on both physiological and psychosocial outcomes, is needed.
For this Special Issue “Exercise and Chronic Disease” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, we invite submissions that examine the effects of exercise or physical activity on health in chronic disease, in both pediatric and adult cohorts. This includes, but is not limited to, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal and bone disease, obesity, rheumatological diseases, cancer, and other common or rare chronic diseases. Studies that examine how exercise can help prevent or treat chronic diseases and their outcomes (via exercise interventions, and cross-sectional or prospective evaluations) are welcome. Rigorous reviews of literature may also be considered. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed by experts in the field and are due in December 2021.
