Current Issue Introduction

April 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

In clinical medicine, there is always a need for valid and reliable tools and instruments to assess and predict functional capacity and outcomes. Three studies (pages 189, 217, and 245) related to this important objective are published in this issue.  An interesting follow-up study of patients discharged from inpatient rehabilitation facilities is also included. Finally, two Case Reports, three Visual Vignettes, and two Letters to the Editor are part of this issue to stimulate discussion about unusual clinical observations and/or controversial therapeutic approaches.
