Here's a brief summary of an excellent paper by Boudreau et al from Manual Therapy.
The purpose of this paper was to summarize several important aspects of motor-skill training for enhancing musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
Cortical Neuroplasticity: a dynamic feature of life that encompasses functional or morphological change in properties of neurons (connection strength, represenational patterns, neuron reorganization.
It is hypothesized that motor-skill training can influence the direction of change in cortical neuroplasticity.
Potential effects of motor-skill training:
Methods of Optimizing Rehabilitation:
The above information was derived from a multitude of studies and demonstrates that motor-skill training may positively influence cortical neuroplasticity in musculoskeletal rehabilitation
