Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes a very special paper reviewing the 100 yr. history of the Journal. Altschuler and co-authors have examined all issues of the AJPM&R since the beginning in 1922 and present a very interesting summary of important accomplishments and events relevant to the history and development of the field of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. Furthermore, this review illustrates how the Journal has contributed to that development.  An article on the topic of observational studies in the special research section is an excellent summary of a study design that is frequently used in rehabilitation research. A Cochrane review discusses the latest evidence on the use of NSAID's in the treatment of trigger finger. Finally, this issue includes (online) the second paper on musculoskeletal dynamic ultrasound with a focus on the elbow joint. The reader can access all videos in the ultrasound collection section of the website (


 I hope you will enjoy reading this issue!​
