Impaired proprioceptive perception and the balance function are known to associate with knee osteoarthritis. The previous publications have reported the beneficial effects of proprioceptive exercises on mild or moderate knee osteoarthritis. Scientific data in the literature regarding their effects in advanced stages of knee osteoarthritis are lacking. The(More)
