Proprioceptive

Pertaining to proprioception, or the awareness of posture, movement, and changes in equilibrium and the knowledge of position, weight, and resistance of objects as they relate to the body.

proprioceptive (prō´preōsep´tiv),

adj describes the body's ability to sense the movement and position of muscles without visual guides. It is essential for any activity requiring hand-eye coordination.

proprioceptive

pertaining to or emanating from proprioceptor.

proprioceptive deficit
a defect of proprioception in which the animal acts as though it does not know where its feet are (in contrast to a cerebellar defect when the feet do not end up where the animal appears to intend that they should go).
proprioceptive positioning
positioning of the limbs or head and neck in response to proprioceptive inputs. The basis of postural reflexes.
proprioceptive reflex
a reflex that is initiated by stimuli arising from some function of the reflex mechanism itself.

TMS or "Therapeutic Motion Simulation(TM)" is a process by which the neurologic system is stimulated through proprioceptive impulses created by sensomotoric TMS platforms causing instant relaxation to patients suffering from conditions such as; spasm, autism, breathing problems, stroke or back and head trauma's as well as stimulating at the same time the blood circulation and muscles of (partially) paralyzed people.
In addition, the early physiotherapy group received manual lymph drainage (a gentle massage technique to improve lymph circulation), massage of the scar, stretching exercises for the shoulder muscles, and active and active-assisted shoulder exercises, including proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation patterns without resistance.
Proprioceptive deficit may lead to delayed neuromuscular protective reflexes and coordination such that muscle contraction occurs too late to protect the joint from excessive joint movement (2).
These include exercise to strengthen and lengthen the hamstring muscles, spinal manual therapy, massage, proprioceptive balance training and plyometrics - although current evidence for the use of these techniques can neither be supported or refuted.
