Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Musculoskeletal disorders are rapidly increasing. This is largely due to both increased participation in sports and recreational activities, as well as population growth and aging.

According to the WHO, musculoskeletal conditions are the highest contributor to the global need for rehabilitation, accounting for approximately two-thirds of all adults in need of rehabilitation, and thus representing a significant burden for public health.

Over the years, advancements in technology and research have revolutionized the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation, developing innovative approaches for the improvement of patient outcomes.

The future of physical medicine and rehabilitation is marked by an exciting range of innovations in rehabilitation services, such as telehealth, virtual reality, robotics, artificial intelligence, gamification, and mobile applications. These new technologies could revolutionize the field of rehabilitation, improving access, engagement, and the personalization of care.

As these technologies continue to evolve and become more accessible, patients can expect a more efficient, engaging, and effective rehabilitation experience. Physical medicine and rehabilitation is poised to incorporate these innovations, shaping a future where rehabilitation reaches new levels of success.

In this Special Issue, we are pleased to invite researchers who are skilled in the field of innovations for the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders to submit high-quality articles or reviews that relate to the issues present in these research areas.
