Included among the components of current rehabilitation programs are combinations of exercise that aim to improve muscle strength and motor control. In many contexts, the patients must acquire, or re-acquire, motor skills so they can organize the motor responses necessary to limit the possibility of musculoskeletal damage. This article examines the principles of motor learning that can support clinical practice to improve patients’ neuromuscular function.
