Rio, E., Kidgell, D., Moseley, G. L., Gaida, J., Docking, S., Purdam, C., & Cook, J. (2016). Tendon neuroplastic training: changing the way we think about tendon rehabilitation: a narrative review. British Journal of Sports Medicine, 50(4), 209–215.

This narrative review provides an overview of recent research on rehabilitation of tendinopathy. Topics discussed include: 1) motor control in tendinopathy, 2) resistance training and tendinopathy, and 3) current tendon rehabilitation. Findings of the literature review indicate that rehabilitation programs for tendinopathy should incorporate both strength training and increased motor control (see original article for details).
