Based on the impetus that the Spanish University has been providing to the Physiotherapy Faculty since 1989, the Universities of Seville and Alcalá considered the creation of two scientific journals, of a university nature, which would constitute suitable and effective supports to report on the advances that were taking place in the scientific knowledge of Physiotherapy. and to disseminate, among the scientific and professional community of physiotherapists, the results of quality research, which was being generated in the various areas of the disciplinary field of Physiotherapy.

Thus, the Research Group "Área de Fisioterapia" (code PAIDI CTS-305) of the University of Seville founded in 1995 the journal Cuestiones de Fisioterapia, with Prof. Dr. Jesús Rebollo Roldán as its founding Director, and that the Department of Physiotherapy of the University of Alcalá founded in 2000 the journal Fisioterapia Actual, with Prof. Dr. Tomás Gallego Izquierdo as its founding Director. Years later, in 2004, in order to increase editorial and scientific quality, both journals merged under the name of Cuestiones de Fisioterapia.

In May 2008, Cuestiones de Fisioterapia was the only journal in its field that successfully passed the process of the first Voluntary Quality Assessment of Spanish Scientific Journals, carried out by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology, thus joining the Spanish Repository of Science and Technology. In May 2011, the Foundation awarded it the Excellent Magazine certificate.

In 2012, in order to further increase the editorial and scientific quality and promote the professionalization and internationalization of the journal, Cuestiones de Fisioterapia was transferred to the Andalusian Society of Physiotherapy "SOFÍA", maintaining the same organization.

Currently Cuestiones de Fisioterapia is the scientific journal in its field with the greatest implementation in Spain; it has more than 25,000 subscribers and is recognized as a scientific dissemination organ by 10 Professional Associations of Physiotherapists in Spain
