Disabled. (Note the "d" at the end.)
The only controversy I recall hearing about these terms has been from people without physical problems. (I have trouble with both legs, and I could not care less with adjective you use to describe me.) The difference between these terms, if there is one, is lost on me.
You'll also find "politically correct" terms such as "special" (as in "special education"), "challenged" and "impaired" (such as in "vision impaired" instead of blind).
I've even heard "handicapable" instead of "handicapped". Common? No, but I've heard it.
