The rehabilitation of orthopedic and neurological patients is a specialized area of healthcare that focuses on helping individuals recover and regain their functional abilities after experiencing injuries, surgeries, or conditions related to the musculoskeletal system or nervous system. The primary goal of rehabilitation is to improve a patient's quality of life, enhance their independence, and maximize their physical as well as cognitive function.
We are sincerely inviting you to submit original research articles and reviews dealing with the rehabilitation process for patients who have undergone orthopedic surgeries, such as joint replacements, fractures, or ligament repairs, or those who have musculoskeletal injuries or conditions, such as osteoarthritis or back pain. Papers concerning patients' neurological conditions or injuries, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's disease, are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Physical therapy.
- Occupational therapy.
- Rehabilitation exercises.
- Pain management.
- Speech and language therapy.
- Cognitive rehabilitation.
- Assistive technology.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
