Physical exercise is the main tool available to rehabilitation and sports medicine, consisting in the prescription of muscle contractions and body movements to improve functioning and to help subjects in responding to the needs of daily life. Several exercise interventions have been proven to improve the general health, wellbeing, and quality of life in subjects at risk of or suffering from medical conditions, injuries, and disabilities. In this scenario, ongoing research is investigating the role of exercise in subcellular, molecular, and chemical processes, with a high interest in physiology by recent literature. A subject-tailored physical exercise aimed at recovering/improving mobility, muscle strength, and performance is crucial both in patients with musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., affecting joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons) and in sports athletes.
Therefore, in the present Special Issue, we aim at presenting evidence on the key role that physical exercise might play for the wellbeing of the general population, for the rehabilitation of chronic medical conditions, and for achieving a peak performance in elite sports professionals.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
