Proprioceptive exercises are exercises to help you improve your proprioception. Proprioception is easily reduced following an injury and may cause other problems including poor balance and increase your risk of falling or re-injuring the area. Proprioception can be impaired in a number of ways including:
- Neurological conditions
- Post surgery
- Vestibular impairments
Other specialist equipment and taping may be used in conjunction with the proprioceptive exercises to help maximise your recovery.
Your physiotherapist will work with you to ensure the proprioceptive exercises are aimed to meet you short and long term goals and help you return to your normal activities and sports.
