The Proprioceptive Sensory System
The proprioceptive system is one of the lesser known senses. This sensory system has huge influence on our body awareness, identifying and grading both force and pressure. The proprioceptive system receptors are located in our muscles, joints, ligaments and even within our skin and bones. Movement triggers feedback from the receptors to our brain and provide information about where our arms, legs, hands and feet are in relation to our body. This sense helps us to coordinate our movements so we can walk, run, hop, skip, negotiate obstacles or kick an object with precision.
