Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure to present this special issue of the Journal of Men’s Health that discusses “Interventions for the treatment or prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in men.”

Musculoskeletal disorders are associated with a variety of daily life and sports activities. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders occur secondary to lifting heavy objects or performing repetitive tasks. Musculoskeletal disorders affect the muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones, and joints and may lead to significant pain, weakness, and dysfunction, which tend to negatively affect patients’ quality of life. These conditions are known to interfere with tasks at work and contribute to impaired performance, specifically in sportspersons.

A variety of interventions are available in clinical practice for the management of musculoskeletal disorders. It is important to investigate the role of various interventions, including orthoses as aids to prevent musculoskeletal disorders in sportspersons and workers, including general men. Therefore, through this special issue, I wish to highlight the latest research regarding the various interventions (including alternative and complementary interventions) for the treatment or prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in men.

The Journal of Men’s Health special edition: “Intervention for the treatment or prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in men” will welcome your work as an original article, case report, commentary or review paper. This special issue allows an opportunity to address the following types of topics:

(1) Interventions for work-related musculoskeletal disorders in men
