  Proprioceptive system is made up of the receptors and the nerves in the joints, muscles and the ligaments around the joints. These receptors send signals to the brain. The brain then on the basis of the tension or stretch noted by the receptors gives the signal to a particular muscle to contract or relax. This is a subconscious system and sometimes take place within a fraction of a second. But after any injury may it be traumatic or overuse, the receptors get damaged or become subdued and function less. This leads the joint to feel odd, or not right.

  Proprioceptive exercises, also known as closed chain or weight bearing exercises are of utmost importance during any rehabilitation program. Many therapists include these exercises to some level in lower limb rehabilitation but do not include them in the upper limb or back rehabilitation.
