About this issue
Prevention is becoming an increasing focus of physical therapy practice.  Two articles in this issue, one on the effects of chemotherapy on movement by Gilchrist and Tanner and another on bone mineral changes with stepping practice by Lee and colleagues highlight the importance of being proactive with out patients.  Referrals to physical therapy after chemotherapy can identify potential and current problems from neuropathic effects of cancer treatments.  Treatment of these effects can improve the quality of daily life for children and their families.  Weight bearing through walking has been shown to be an effective strategy for slowing bone loss in elderly people.  Lee and colleagues have demonstrated an improvement in bone mineral content for infants and provide good reasons to encourage upright, weight bearing actives as early as possible.

Valid measurement tools are essential to document the effects of physical therapy.  New samples (Kloze and colleagues), new reference data (Weingarten and colleagues) and extended reference values (Steenman, and colleagues) extend valid measurements for our use in the clinic and research.  Gannotti and colleagues emphasize the importance of using our best measurement tools for documentation of services.
