Research in musculoskeletal rehabilitation has grown tremendously in the past few decades. Most of this research is based on a biomechanical approach demonstrating peripheral differences between patients and controls in kinetic, kinematic and electromyographic data. The scientific community describes motor behavior as the final common output of the human sensorimotor system which provides valuable insights into motor changes after musculoskeletal injuries and damages. (JochenBaumeister, What the Brain can Tell us in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation).
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
