The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Alexandria, Va, has recently released a two-part podcast titled Rehabilitation for Military Service Members Returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, which highlights the significant effect of war injuries on both research and clinical practice for rehabilitation professionals.
Part 1 is about the Center for the Intrepid, a world-class, state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility for wounded warriors at Brooke Army Medical Center, research conducted there, and developments with prosthetic advances.
Part 2 discusses how injured soldiers are transported from the field of combat to the United States, what happens when they return, and how they are being treated for wounds and loss of limbs.
