    January Craikcast Now Available

    Two themes emerge in this month's PTJ, says Editor in Chief Rebecca Craik, PT, PhD, FAPTA, in her January Craikcast. The first theme, which reflects back on PTJ's December 2011 Special Issue on Advances in Disability Research, calls for physical therapists to go beyond measurements of impairments and consider other variables when evaluating outcomes following interventions. Craik notes that 4 papers in the current issue "certainly have gone beyond the impairment level in looking at outcome measures." The second theme, motor control and motor learning, can be found in articles on intermanual transfer in patients with upper-limb amputation, body-scaling, and mastering motivation in toddlers.
