Dear AJPM&R readers,   ​


Randomized controlled trials (RCT's) continue to generate high-level evidence to support clinical interventions. This issue of the AJPM&R includes five RCT's on various topics and patient populations including patients with Parkinson's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain, low back pain, and older adults. The variety of health conditions is a reflection of the breadth and scope of rehabilitation medicine. Also, at least two of the RCT's can relate to the PREP article on the use of injectable corticosteroids in osteoarthritis. We should continue to search for the evidence that will guide our practice.
