Balance and Proprioception

The term Proprioception refers to a sense of joint position. Proprioception training is highly common in rehabilitation of injured athletes, but it can just as easily be used to prevent injury. Standing on a Wobble board or Balance board is often used to retrain or increase proprioception abilities, particularly as physical therapy for ankle or knee injuries. Exercise balls can also help with core proprioception training by working on balancing the abdominal and back muscles. Click here to veiw our Balance Board Buyer's Guide.
