Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes the results of four clinical trials.  One of them, the Editor's Pick of the month, compares autologous blood-derived products vs. corticosteroids in the treatment of plantar fasciopathy.  The need to compare new treatments with existing therapies as opposed to placebos has been emphasized by several authors.  There is a need for this type of investigation in several areas of interest in rehabilitation.  Because of the significant interest among physiatrists, this is particularly true in musculoskeletal medicine.  The need for an evidence-based approach is also highlighted in this month's invited review.
