Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The world’s population is both increasing and aging. A substantial portion of the elderly population suffers from several chronic comorbidities that significantly reduce their quality of life and autonomy, with musculoskeletal conditions being among the most frequent. Effective, sustainable actions are needed to promote life-long health. Several of these musculoskeletal health conditions can be prevented or ameliorated with adequate physical activity and exercise. In this context, physical activity (and its different manifestations: sports participation, physical exercise, etc.) has been recognized as a powerful ally in preventing and/or counteracting the bone and muscle decline associated with specific conditions, such as aging. Research establishing robust scientific evidence should be encouraged to verify specific conditions’ short-, medium- and long-term effects on individuals throughout life. Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those demonstrating a high academic standard coupled with a practical focus on the effects of sports or exercises on bone and muscle health.
