Physical therapists work to address post traumatic stress disorder among veterans
Advance for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine

Some military personnel have suffered major injuries that involve loss of limbs and burns. While others have a less visible but an all too real injury known as post traumatic stress disorder. Physical therapists have an important role to play in treating this devastating disorder.

By Brooke Andrus
Ever since the federal government got the ball rolling on healthcare reform legislation — aka the Affordable Care Act — it has been a hot topic of conversation among providers and consumers alike. For the last few years, discussions about the effects of the new healthcare law were purely speculative. But now that the ACA go-live date has come and gone, a clearer picture of its impact — particularly in the realm of outpatient physical therapy — is starting to emerge. Here's a breakdown of how the new healthcare law is affecting therapists.

Modern prosthetics improving amputees' daily lives
By Denise A. Valenti
It is estimated that 185,000 limbs are amputated each year in the United States. Of these, 87 percent are dysvascular amputations, often because of the abnormal blood circulation related to diabetes. Whether the amputation is related to disease or injury, and whether the victim is civilian or military, the goal of treatment and rehabilitation is for the patient to function as close to normal as possible. And recent advances in the development of prosthetic limbs are making this goal a reality.

Researchers: Improvements needed for low back pain telehealth assessments
PT Products
A group of Australian researchers has determined that when it comes to assessment of low back pain, more work is needed on telerehabilitation before a remote approach becomes a fully reliable substitute for in-person interaction. The research team compared face-to-face and remote LBP assessments, finding that while "important components" of the assessments can be valid when obtained through TR, "some areas of the assessment require further testing and development." The study was published in the February 2014 edition of Telemedicine and e-Health.

Missouri study sheds light on stroke rehab
Advance for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine
Researchers at the University of Missouri are studying the ways in which a patient compensates when losing a dominant hand and suggest improved rehabilitation techniques for those suffering from amputation or stroke. In the study, amputees forced to use nondominant hands performed simple drawing tests and were checked for speed and accuracy. Frey and Benjamin Philip, a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of psychological sciences at MU, found that individuals who were forced to compensate with their nondominant left hands actually performed precision tasks as well as the control group did with their dominant right hands.
