    BioMed Journal Focuses on Physical Therapy

    A recent issue of BioMed Research International is entirely devoted to role of physical therapy in the treatment of chronic wounds, cancer-related lymphedema, and urinary incontinence, with an accompanying editorial stating that "well-documented, promising, and inexpensive methods for physical therapy are necessary" in order to respond to these "common and costly" problems.

    The issue is available for free and covers topics including new promising methods in wound healing, physical therapy of urinary incontinence, electromyography and biofeedback in rehabilitation of pelvic floor muscles, and kinesiology taping in lymphedema.

    In the issue's editorial, Luther C. Kloth, PT, MS, CSW, FAPTA, joins other editors in writing that the diseases covered in the issue are among "the major health disorders" affecting frail young and older people, and that establishing effective treatment methods is "a pressing issue."
