Proprioceptive Training

  • Proprioceptive training is included as part of the rehabilitation program to retrain the brain and to increase dynamic stability to prevent chronic and recurrent symptoms.
  • Proprioceptive training increases the body's awareness of where it is in space as well as enhancing stretch and position sensation.
  • Many of the proprioceptive sensors are damaged during a ligamentous injury.
  • It is important to increase body position awareness and increase speed of contraction to prevent chronic and recurrent injury.
