Current Issue Introduction

October 2016

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This month’s issue of the AJPM&R includes two articles on the topic of performance of physiatrists on board certification exams. Two factors, delay and repetition, are studied as variables. Three studies looked at different aspects of stroke, including differences in outcomes between first-ever and recurrent strokes, effects of hemiplegic shoulder pain, and bone health in paralympic athletes with hemiplegic CP. Finally, an RCT looks at the potential benefits of a relatively new physical modality, whole-body vibration, on balance and flexibility in elderly. I hope you will enjoy reading this issue.
