Physical Exercise in Rehabilitation and Motor Deficiency: Molecular and Physiological Adaptations to Regular Exercise

Call for Papers

American Heart Association and European Region of the World Health Organization Statements summarize the evidence for the benefits of physical activity in the prevention of morbidity and mortality. It is widely thought that regular physical exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and some cancers and contributes to physical and mental wellbeing of younger and older people although recommendations about daily moderate exercise intensity, nature (continuous, intermittent), and mode (strength, endurance, and muscle regimen) of physical exercise are not yet discussed. Thus, effect of training on molecular adaptations and physiological responses remains uncertain. The topic of the present call for papers is to present new advances and research results in the field of molecular and applied physiology and biomechanics in exercise rehabilitation and adapted physical activity.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles to this special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Cardiovascular and neuromuscular responses to exercise
  • Link between primary prevention and exercise rehabilitation
  • Biomechanical approach of motor deficiency
  • Wellbeing in young and old people
