Journal of Physiotherapy Research

About Journal of Physiotherapy Research

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.

Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Journal of Physiotherapy Research is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.

Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.

The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.

Fitness Training

Fitness Training is define as exercise undertaken to improve or maintain one's physical fitness and health. Some of the benefits of physical fitness training are weight reduction, improvements to the body's proportions, and improvements to the body's resistance, which reduces the risk of disease. There are four types of fitness that are important to incorporate into physical activity routine: Cardiovascular/aerobic exercise, Anaerobic exercise, Joint flexibility, Muscular endurance and strength.

Anatomical Aspects of Physiotherapy

Anatomical Aspects of Physiotherapy deals with the study of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems in relation to their function and dysfunction in human movement. Anatomy of physiotherapy study aware about musculoskeletal and nervous systems in relation to their function and dysfunction, responses of neuromusculoskeletal structures to injury, disease and rehabilitation in human movement.

Biomechanical Aspects of Physiotherapy

Biomechanical Aspects of Physiotherapy provide clear information about the biomechanics study of human motion. Biomechanics study is very important to determine cause of injury to prevent them re-occurring. Biomechanical analysis includes, running analysis - study of your running style, gait analysis - study of your walking pattern, video analysis or motion capture analysis, sports biomechanics - sport specific analysis, biomechanics of running, sprinting, swimming, throwing etc.

Physiological Aspects of Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology

The psychological effects of physiotherapy depend upon the method which mainly follow by the physiotherapist and the need of the individual who needs medical therapy. In general physiotherapists are specialists in the area of musculoskeletal disorders; prevention, treatment and management, they can also be specialists in an area such as cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological rehabilitation.
