Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical medicine and rehabilitation, also known as rehabilitation medicine, aims to evaluate, diagnose, enhance, and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The main goals of physical medicine and rehabilitation are to maximize patient independence in daily activities, improve quality of life, and prevent re-injuries, for example, in sports. Understanding therapy related to diagnosis, evaluation, functional restoration, and rehabilitation is key when providing treatment using customized methods that are suitable for the patient’s abilities.

We welcome the submission of original articles, reviews, case reports, and preclinical and clinical studies to this Special Issue entitled Challenges and Perspectives for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation”. This research aims to summarize the therapeutic techniques and the mechanisms for achieving optimal restoration of functional abilities in patients with physical impairments, disabilities, or after injury or surgery.

Prof. Dr. Hassane Zouhal
