Special Issue "The Knee: Structure, Function and Rehabilitation"
A special issue of Journal of Functional Morphology and Kinesiology (ISSN 2411-5142).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2017)
Use of the knee joint is integral to many sporting activities and more general activities of daily living, such as walking or climbing stairs. However, knee injuries can be some of the most frequently occurring of all joints, leading to pain, disability, and reduced quality of life. These injuries can be the result of acute high abnormal loading (e.g., anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, patellar dislocation), or as the result of chronic overuse (osteoarthritis). In order to help restore the structure and function of the knee, and to reduce pain, many interventions can be used which range from exercise rehabilitation through to surgical interventions. For this Special Issue, “The Knee: Structure, Function and Rehabilitation”, authors are invited to submit original research papers and current review articles that relate to the normal and pathological structure and function of the knee, as well as the rehabilitation of the injured knee towards normal structure and function.
