What is a motor control dysfunction
inability to utilize efficient mechanical and neuromuscular components to effectively assume a balanced posture and perform efficient functional activities with necessary balance reactions
How do you train patients in motor learning?
Through resistance and repetition.
Focus on pt's kinesthetic and proprioceptive awareness.
Enhancing central neuronal recruitment patterns.
