Letter from the Academy President
Greetings! And welcome to the inaugural issue of the “Journal of Clinical Electrophysiology & Wound Management.” We are very proud to be highlighting physical therapy practice in the areas of electrodiagnostics, wound management, biophysical agents and neuromusculoskeletal ultraso-nography. The Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology & Wound Management has discussed the possibility of a Journal for years, but as you can imagine, bringing something like this to fruition is no small feat. I want to sincerely thank our Editor in Chief – Mohini Rawat, as well as our Associate Editors, for their hard work and tireless efforts in making this Journal a reality. I would also like to thank the Academy’s Immediate Past-President – Karen Gibbs – for her support of this project dur-ing her tenure. For all of you that submitted articles for the Journal – you’re awesome! Moving best practice forward requires clinicians, researchers and educators willing to share their expertise. I en-courage everyone reading this Journal to consider contributing to future issues. We all have knowledge to share, and who knows how many patients or clinicians might benefit from your expe-rience? I am excited to be offering a Journal of this quality as a member benefit for our Academy and I hope that it helps you in your practice. While our specialty areas are often regarded as “niche,” our skillsets make a huge impact on our patients. I think one of the best ways to honor that is to continue to build the evidence that supports what we do every day.
