Musculoskeletal injuries can affect any part of the human body, including bones, joints, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other soft tissues.
Musculoskeletal injuries are rapidly increasing due to both increased participation in sports and recreational activities, as well as population growth and aging. Musculoskeletal injuries can be traumatic or non-traumatic, and require a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. At present, advances in conservative and surgical treatments provide patients the best care to reduce pain and restore functionality.
The rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries plays a key role in a proper model of care. The goal of a correct rehabilitation is to restore abilities, functions and autonomy after a musculoskeletal injury. The timing of rehabilitation represents a core concept in the management of musculoskeletal injuries.
According to the WHO, musculoskeletal conditions are the highest contributor to the global need for rehabilitation, and account for approximately two-thirds of all adults in need of rehabilitation, representing an important burden for public health.
In this Special Issue, we are pleased to invite researchers in the field of musculoskeletal injuries and their rehabilitation to submit high-quality articles or reviews related to the issues in these research areas.
