Proprioceptive control is considered important for spinal stability and prevention of injury. However there is evidence that proprioceptive structures, that are reflexive and viscoelastic, are challenged by commonly adopted 'slouched' postures. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of such postures on proprioceptive control. The reliability of(More)
