proprioceptive

[prō′prē·əsep′tiv]
Etymology: L, proprius, one's own, capere, to take
pertaining to the sensations of body movements and awareness of posture, enabling the body to orient itself in space without visual clues.

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.

Given that the sensory receptors believed to mediate ankle proprioception may be located not only in the ligamentous tissues, but also in the tendons, muscles and capsule of the ankle joint and that in addition to nerve conduction problems that may arise, all these structures may be vulnerable to damage as a result of an ankle sprain injury, the likelihood of detecting a proprioceptive deficit in the individual with an ankle inversion injury history could conceivably be quite high.
Thus, the psycho-physical impact of small proprioceptive deficits is important to consider after injury.
Weakness of this study would include insufficient statistical power to detect the differences between the positions of plantarflexion 30[degrees]/inversion 20[degrees] and plantarflexion 30[degrees]/inversion 0[degrees], which may highlight the role inversion on the proprioceptive deficit.
As single-limb balance time did not differ between hypermobile and non-hypermobile dancers, based on these data, hypermobile dancers do not seem to have proprioceptive deficits that can be detected during eyes-closed single-limb static balance.
