Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: 2nd Edition: Fitness Assessment, Athlete’s Monitoring Cycle and Training Interventions in Team Sports
Practicing sports and exercise is one of the most effective non-pharmacological approaches for improving physical and mental health. Additionally, there is consistent evidence about the beneficial effect of sports and exercise on the clinical population which may meaningfully benefit from regular practice, contributing toward regulating the progression of specific diseases or even reducing drug need. Due to the importance of sports and exercise, it is essential to improve the clinical practice that may include this non-pharmacological strategy as part of a multidisciplinary approach. Interactions with drugs, nutrition, or other strategies also need to be further researched for a great overview of the impact of all of them, acting together to benefit health.
Therefore, this Special Issue’s focus is to open a window of opportunity to publish articles that reveal the effects of using sports and exercises as a single or combined approach for healthcare in clinical and non-clinical populations. Considering that more research should be conducted and published about such important topics, the aim of the Special Issue “Sport and Exercise Medicine” is to publish original, high-quality investigations and narrative and systematic reviews in the field of health care, sports, and exercise. We look forward to receiving contributions related (but not limited) to the following topics: (i) experimental studies and interventions using sports and exercise in healthy or clinical populations; (ii) observational analytic studies identifying the effects of practicing sport and exercise on health and quality of life; (iii) systematic reviews and meta-analyses that may summarize the evidence about the effects of sport and exercise on healthy and clinical populations.
