PROPRIOCEPTION STIMULATION

Process of delivering information about the internal state of the body to the central nervous system. This infromation comes from many neural reporting stations such as receptors in the skin, muscles, other tissues and joints.

It is the ability to maintain stability and orientation during static and dynamic activities. Mechanoreceptors are neuro sensory cells that are responibile for monitoring joint position and movement
