Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stability
This is the first comprehensive reference to address the basic science of proprioception and neuromuscular control. Drawn from the research of internationally respected authorities and spanning several disciplines, this is the one book you need in order to learn the status of scientifically supported knowledge regarding proprioception and its role in motor control and joint stability.
This is your best resource for
-gaining insight into the neuromuscular system as it relates to joint stability and proprioception, and
-developing rehabilitation programs aimed at correcting neuromuscular control and proprioception problems.
Based on the proceedings of a conference conducted by the Foundation for Sports Medicine Education and Research/American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, this reference explores directions for future research and clinical protocols.
Divided into four sections, the reference first examines the contribution of the sensorimotor system to joint stability in Section I. Section IIexamines the effects of ligament injury on proprioception and neuromuscular control. Section IIIidentifies special issues related to proprioception and neuromuscular control, while Section IVpresents the role of rehabilitation in reestablishing proprioception and neuromuscular control.
Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stabilityoffers a unified and inclusive body of knowledge regarding proprioception and serves as a valued guide for directing future research and clinical applications.
