This text addresses the basic science of proprioception and neuromuscular control. Drawn from the research of international authorities and spanning several disciplines, this book should benefit students studying the status of scientifically-supported knowledge regarding proprioception and its role in motor control and joint stability. The text is a resource for: reviewing the structure and functions of the sensorimotor system, gaining insight into the neuromuscular system as it relates to joint stability and proprioception, and developing rehabilitation programmes aimed at correcting neuromuscular control and proprioception problems.About the Author:
