Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regular exercise and physical conditioning are effective behavioral strategies to prevent musculoskeletal degeneration and chronic diseases and promote the overall health of individuals. Public health institutes in almost every country around the world have established and provided their own physical activity guidelines for disease prevention and health promotion, but these guidelines are somewhat generic. In this Special Issue, we aim to explore safe and effective exercise interventions to improve the function of human systems, including the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems, to ameliorate related diseases, and to rehabilitate functional impairments. Experimental studies, reviews, and meta-analysis studies that examine the effectiveness of various exercise interventions in the prevention and management of disease, rehabilitation and improvement of human function; research studies on the development of strategies to promote physical activity using mobile platforms and virtual reality technology; innovative measurement technologies and biomarker exploration studies related to sports medicine and rehabilitation are all welcome in this Special Issue. When preparing to submit a structured review, please follow the PRISMA guidelines.

This report presents the case of an ice hockey player diagnosed with a tear in the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus at 19 years of age. In addition, we suggest a rehabilitation exercise program that enabled an early return to play for an ice hockey athlete in a university sports league. The patient underwent arthroscopic meniscal repair and was discharged one day after surgery. A three-stage rehabilitation program was developed, as follows: Phase I, the protective phase (reduce inflammation symptoms and restore range of motion to enable weight-bearing); Phase II, the restorative phase (improve the strength of the quadriceps muscle and recover cardiovascular endurance); Phase III, the return to full functional activity (familiarize the patient with sport-specific skills and recover a symmetric functional level on both sides). After completing the 10-week rehabilitation program, the patient returned to play and took part in games 71 and 84 days after surgery. The patient had no meniscus reinjury in the 10 years after surgery while playing in university and professional ice hockey leagues. The functional performance-focused rehabilitation program presented in this case report resulted in an early return to sport and good long-term outcomes. Full article
