Abstract

Dance involves exemplary sensory-motor control, which is subserved by sophisticated neural processing at the spinal cord and brain level. Such neural processing is altered in the presence of nociception and pain, and the adaptations within the central nervous system that are known to occur with persistent nociception or pain have clear implications for movement and, indeed, risk of further injury. Recent rapid advances in our understanding of the brain's representation of the body and the role of cortical representations, or "neurotags," in bodily protection and regulation have given rise to new strategies that are gaining traction in sports medicine. Those strategies are built on the principles that govern the operation of neurotags and focus on minimizing the impact of pain, injury, and immobilization on movement control and optimal performance. Here we apply empirical evidence from the chronic pain clinical neurosciences to introduce new opportunities for rehabilitation after dance injury.
