About Journal

Introduction

Physiotherapy or 'Physical Therapy' is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability.

The Journal of Novel Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation publishes open access, peer-reviewed manuscripts focusing innovative technologies in Physiotherapy leading to the development of both assessment and rehabilitation tools and enhancing interactions among physiotherapy professional experts world-wide.

Reasons for Publishing

Like all professions, Physiotherapy is constantly changing in response to changing needs. Physiotherapy is observing new roles in situations where our society is now facing with the challenge of growth of back pain. Moreover, since 1980, the prevalence of obesity worldwide has more than doubled. The rapid increase in the number of obese people in the UK is a major challenge, as over half of the UK adult population could be obese by 2050.

Therefore Heighten Science took this responsibility to publish the Journal of Novel Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation to help those who are in pain and make invaluable changes to a person's quality of life. The Journal of Novel Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation publishes manuscripts that assist physiotherapists to respond to changing challenges through injury prevention and providing patients with more information and advice to manage their condition.
