In stabilizing the joints, proprioceptive mechanisms
seem to have a role between static stabilizers and dynamic muscular restraints, and they may function as a means for interplay.
Flexibility: Components, proprioceptive mechanisms
Neurosensorial system, through vestibular, visual and proprioceptive mechanisms
contribute to a correct posture.
The role of training is to shift this control to the faster and more dynamic proprioceptive mechanisms
, which because of their locus in the spinal cord, respond much quicker to sudden disturbances in the postural system, e.g., during fall-avoidance episodes.
(11) It is important to include cervical spondylosis and the wearing of a neck collar as possible reasons for balance disturbance as they inhibit the proprioceptive mechanisms
. (12) Where there are proprioception impairments an effective podiatric intervention is appropriate footwear which encases the foot and has a low heel and thin sole.
The objective of the present study was to improve the dynamic balance performance of a sample of dancers by increasing the challenge to their proprioceptive mechanisms
of balance control in their daily dance practice.
(31,34) The amount of actual mechanical support has been questionable and current literature places a greater emphasis on proprioceptive mechanisms
via sensory afferent cues through traction of the tape on the skin to reduce pain intensity and increase muscular and joint support.
Significance of proprioceptive mechanisms
in the regulation of stance.
(11) Similar to the knee menisci, the labrum may also be involved in nociceptive and proprioceptive mechanisms
due to its abundant neural supply.
