Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The personal and economic costs of musculoskeletal dysfunctions are increasing and physical therapy has the scientific competence to diagnose, prevent and intervene in order to prevent deterioration of functional capacity. Musculoskeletal dysfunctions need to be investigated using solid theoretical and methodological bases to scientifically support clinical approaches in the search for the prevention and full rehabilitation of people.

Through research in the areas of musculoskeletal physical therapy and neurofunctional physical therapy, which have research interests in movement disorders, it will be possible to build knowledge for evidence-based rehabilitation solidly.

The search for a lower negative impact caused by chronic diseases that impair the individual's functional capacity can only be achieved through scientific development, especially in the areas of prevention and effective treatment, and needs to be started as early as possible.

Dr. Marcelo Tavella Navega
Guest Editor
