Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the present day, engaging in physical activity and sports undoubtedly offers a myriad of benefits to those who participate, both from a physical standpoint (improvement in cardiorespiratory parameters, physical fitness, and the preservation of bone density, among others) and from a psychological perspective (reduced stress and anxiety levels, improved self-confidence and self-esteem, among other benefits).

Nevertheless, on the other hand, when engaging in sports, especially those with high demands and even more so in high-performance sports, the occurrence of various types of injuries is highly probable and, in many cases, even inevitable. In this context, establishing a prompt and appropriate diagnosis of the injury along with a concurrent and coordinated treatment and rehabilitation program are fundamental elements for the recovery of the injured individual and their return to the physical activity or sporting discipline they are involved in. Gaining fresh insights into these vital aspects is of great interest to professionals in sports medicine and related fields.

All these circumstances are addressed from a multifactorial perspective in sports medicine, with particular emphasis on the processes of injury diagnosis and its management across the necessary stages until complete recovery.

Therefore, the primary goal of this Special Issue, entitled “Diagnosis and Management of Sports Medicine”, is to present recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries or conditions incurred during physical activity and sport practice. Original research papers, clinical cases, and literature reviews on exciting and innovative topics are welcome.
