Journal of Physiotherapy Research is an open access peer reviewed journal that provides an international platform for practicing physiotherapists, researchers and scientists engaged in physiotherapeutic research to publish their latest research findings. The aim and scope of the Journal of Physiotherapy incorporates a diverse range of subject areas related to physical therapy and rehabilitation viz.cardiovascular physiotherapy, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, neurological physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy, geriatric physiotherapy and fitness training. Original manuscripts that pertain to hitherto unexplored realms ofanatomical aspects of physiotherapy, biomechanical aspects of physiotherapy, physiological aspects of physiotherapy and exercise physiology are solicited.
The journal also emphasizes on the publication of manuscripts that serve to ameliorate the adept physiotherapy techniques and treatment modalities as well as further research and innovation of improved mechanical physiotherapeutic devices that employ traction, sound waves, electricity and use prostheses, or those s and other assistive devices.
The Journal of Physiotherapy Research invites researchers and scholars across the world to submit their valuable research works in the journal, hopefully for publication. The journal accepts manuscripts in the form of research articles, review articles, case studies, letters to the editor; opinion articles, commentaries and book reviews.All submitted manuscripts are subject to a rigorous double blind peer review process. Acceptance by two independent reviewers followed by final approval of the editor-in-chief is mandatory for publication of all citable manuscripts.
