Dear AJPM&R readers,   


Randomized controlled clinical trials are considered to generate some of the strongest scientific evidence to support rehabilitative interventions. This issue of the AJPM&R includes three such studies addressing important physiological and clinical problems such as recovery after stroke, the treatment of myofascial pain, and changes in muscle force after eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage.  A fourth study, a meta-analysis, explores the natural history of scoliosis.  Given the increased incidence of traumatic brain injury, the article by Jourdan et al., should be of interest for those studying causes of disability on the rise.​
