Dear AJPM&R Readers,

Limb loss represents in both, young and older persons, a significant impairment that limits activity and restricts participation to varying degrees. The incidence and prevalence of limb loss in the US is 5 to 10 times greater than those of spinal cord injury; yet the care is not standardized and too often can be characterized as fragmented.   In this issue of the AJPM&R we are publishing the new “Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Rehabilitation of Lower Limb Amputation: An Update from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense”.  The VA has always between a leader in limb loss rehabilitation and these guidelines have been used around the world for different types of patients and rehabilitation protocols.

Enjoy!
