As the performance of sportsmen and participation of broad population in the active lifestyle are increasing, the call for more effective training methods and improvement of the quality of physical care appears to be more appealing. Thus, proper understanding of physical movement along with its adequate intensity became a critical part of any elevated physical activity. In case of professional sportsmen, the responsibility for their physical condition applies to physiotherapists and trainers, who nowadays tend to be inspiration for the general public. Therefore, it is essential, the physiotherapists and trainers not only persistently update their knowledge and practices, but also renounce techniques that were proved to be inefficient or even harmful to human body. Consequences of these harmful methods are commonly visible particularly in case of young sportsmen, who due to improper training methods or immoderate intensity suffer with chronic pain or severe injuries later in age and are compelled to suspend or in more critical case quit their career earlier than expected.
In many cases, the pain can be alleviated or even completely eliminated through diverse methods of physical rehabilitation. However, physical rehabilitation should not be only focused on the elimination of pain and after-effects of injury, but also on detection of primary cause of the pain, so the prevention of injury’s origin later in time might be more effective. Although there are know many effective treatment methods at the present time, it is essential making constant progress in development of these techniques, so they can bring better and faster effects.
This Special Issue of Healthcare will collect wide range of research papers on the theme of physical rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and prevention in sports injuries for improving pre-injury policy and offering more effective post-injury treatment to help individuals to retrieve their physical health.
