Current Issue Introduction

July 2015

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This month's issue of the AJPM&R includes two studies on age-related rehabilitation challenges. The need to adapt/adjust our rehabilitation interventions to the age of the patients is a relevant issue as the population of the world ages; an example of personalized rehab? Two manuscripts address the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of ultrasound and a Literature Review discusses other forms of treatment for myofascial pain. The reader should also access the online version for three very interesting Visual Vignettes. Happy reading!


Also, we have now launched an online portal for self-assessment CME exams. All exams can be taken online at www.physiatry.org/JournalCME. To take advantage of online CME activities, see the CME article in this issue.
