To the Editor: In their observational study, Kimmel and colleagues1 examined the impact of inpatient rehabilitation (IPR) for isolated lower limb injuries on functional outcomes in working‐aged people using inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) propensity score analysis. It concerns us that the study lacks real clinical perspectives in disability management.
