Special Issue "Physical Activity and Exercise in the Management of Chronic Disease"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Current estimations support a potential decline in life expectancy and quality due to increased chronic diseases such as sarcopenia, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and cognitive dysfunction. Furthermore, chronic diseases present a considerable burden on society by increasing health and social care costs. Our current understanding of daily physical activity and regular exercise helps manage symptoms and improve overall chronic conditions safely and affordably. However, we do not have sufficient scientific evidence of most chronic disease pathophysiology, and we currently cannot provide medical exercise prescriptions appropriate for each patient in most chronic diseases.
The present Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focuses on how physical activity and exercise can provide a non-invasive role for chronic disease prevention and treatment and delivering a safe and effective exercise prescription for physicians, exercise specialists, and physiotherapists. Papers dealing with the efficacy of alternative exercise available in various medical and physiology fields will also be collected. Research papers, reviews, and case reports are welcome. Other accepted manuscript formats include methodological papers, position papers, brief reports, and commentaries.
