We welcome 2022! Again, we look forward to new adventures and a healthier future. This is our first issue of Pediatric Physical Therapy to publish exclusively online. We believe that this is an important step for our journal to reduce waste and increase ease of access for our readers world-wide.

As the new year begins we have changes to our editorial team. Reggie Harbourne is leaving the position as Associate Editor, but will continue on our editorial board. I want to thank Reggie for her excellent work and many years of service to PPT. It is and always has been a privilege to work with Reggie. I am happy to introduce our new Associate Editor, Michelle Lobo. Michelle is an Associate Professor in the Physical Therapy Department at the University of Delaware. She has been a reviewer and author for PPT for many years. I welcome her to the board and look forward to working together.

This issue again includes evidence on a variety of topics including evidence from animal studies. Baghdadi and colleagues provide evidence from animal studies regarding the use of ultrasound and possible effects. In their commentary, Warden and Johnson remind readers that measuring the effectiveness of ultrasound in promoting improvement remains a critical issue.

We continue to increase submissions to the journal from our international colleagues. Increasing manuscript submissions and international readership is a goal for the journal in 2022. Our transition to online only will support the truly international commitment of Pediatric Physical Therapy.
