There is little question that ankle disc training can improve ankle muscle motor performance in a unipedal balance task, most likely through improved strength and coordination [62] and possibly endurance. How much of the observed improvement in motor performance is due to improved ankle proprioception remains unknown. We have reviewed a number of theoretical ways in which training might improve proprioception for moderately challenging weight-bearing situations such as balancing on one leg… Expand
CAN PROPRIOCEPTION BE IMPROVED BY EXERCISE
TLDR
It is concluded that propiorception of foot and ankle complex can be improved by longterm exercise that has high demand for postural stability, such as ice hockey. Expand
OBJECTIVE EVALUATION OF FUNCTIONAL ANKLE INSTABILITY AND BALANCE EXERCISE TREATMENT
TLDR
The objective of this research was to determine the effect of balance training intervention on the ankle joint laxity, peroneal muscle weakness, and ankle proprioception in patients with CAI using quantitative biomechanical and neuromuscular measurements. Expand
The effectiveness of proprioceptive training for improving motor function: a systematic review
TLDR
There is converging evidence that proprioceptive training can yield meaningful improvements in somatosensory and sensorimotor function, and initial evidence suggesting that propriaceptive training induces cortical reorganization, reinforcing the notion that proprieceptive training is a viable method for improving sensorim motor function. Expand
Ankle proprioception is not targeted by exercises on an unstable surface
TLDR
Results show that on foam, the effect of triceps surae vibration on mean CoP velocity was significantly smaller than on a solid surface, while for paraspinal musculature vibration the effect was bigger on foam than on solid surface. Expand
STRENGHTHENING EXERCISE DAN PROPRIOCEPTIVE EXERCISE PADA FUNCTIONAL ANKLE INSTABILITY
TLDR
The provision of Proprioceptive and Strengthening exercises to the functional ankle instability can significantly improve the functional stability of the ankle. Expand
Sustained muscle activity minimally influences dynamic position sense of the ankle.
TLDR
Results indicate that a sustained activity of the dorsiflexion muscles of the ankle minimally affects dynamic position sense and the ability to process dynamic positionsense information. Expand
Proprioceptive and Sensorimotor Performance in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
No significant differences became evident, however, either between pre- and post-tests or between experimental and control group, which might conclude that spontaneous improvements in postural control are not directly connected with proprioceptive changes. Expand
A Study to Evaluate the effect of Fatigue on Knee Joint Proprioception and Balance in Healthy Individuals
TLDR
A study revealed that moderate exercises can reduce proprioception which affects the neuromuscular control of joint making individual more suspectible to injury. Expand
Recent Ankle Injury, Sport Participation Level, and Tests of Proprioception.
TLDR
The correlation between JPR scores and current level of sport participation suggests the sensitivity of the JPR test to current ankle use, and previous ankle sprains affected proprioceptive scores on the WB AMEDA and N-WB AMedA tests, indicating the sensitivityof theAMEDA movement discrimination test to the effects of ankle injury. Expand
Changes in joint position sense after conservatively treated chronic lateral ankle instability
TLDR
Overall the proprioceptive sensory function of the studied group has improved, but this improvement was not significant in all directions, and the results support the theory of simultaneous function of different mechanoreceptor-systems. Expand

Effect of coordination training on proprioception of the functionally unstable ankle.
TLDR
Results suggest that balance and coordination training can improve some measures of postural sway, and it is still unclear if joint position sense can be improved in the functionally unstable ankle. Expand
Evaluation of kinesthetic deficits indicative of balance control in gymnasts with unilateral chronic ankle sprains.
TLDR
The results cannot be extrapolated to balance abilities during complex gymnastic routines, but do suggest that physical therapy assessment includes passive detection of joint position as well as single-legged stance tests, and that perhaps rehabilitation programs incorporate sports-specific balance activities for such injuries. Expand
The effect of recurrent ankle inversion sprain and taping on proprioception at the ankle.
TLDR
The ability to detect passive plantarflexion and dorsiflexion movements is not impaired in subjects with recurrent ankle inversion sprain, and the protective effect of taping was shown not to arise from enhanced proprioception in the dors iflexion-plantarflexions plane. Expand
Balance and Proprioceptive Training for Rehabilitation of the Lower Extremity
TLDR
The current scientific rationale for use of balance and proprioceptive training in the rehabilitation of sports-related lower extremity injuries is reviewed and guidelines for training to improve balance androprioception will be discussed. Expand
Ankle Disk Training Influences Reaction Times of Selected Muscles in a Simulated Ankle Sprain
TLDR
The effects of one form of proprioceptive training on muscle reaction times are examined and its results may explain why such training can help protect against ankle sprains. Expand
The effects of proprioceptive ankle disk training on healthy subjects.
TLDR
10 weeks of proprioceptive ankle disk training significantly decreased postural sway in both the medial-lateral and anterior-posterior directions. Expand
Effects of a 6-week strength and proprioception training program on measures of dynamic balance: a single-case design.
TLDR
The results revealed that the strength and proprioception training program produced improvements in the ability to balance as assessed dynamically on an SPBB, especially the single-leg conditions. Expand
Effect of ankle disk training on postural control in patients with functional instability of the ankle joint.
TLDR
Increased postural sway in men with functional instability is found and the restored postural correction pattern do not tally with Freemans proprioceptive theory for postural control, but stresses the importance of central motor programs. Expand
Sensory changes associated with severe ankle sprain.
TLDR
This study highlights that local sensory deficits are associated with severe ankle sprain and shows that differences between sides was not apparent in the non-injured group. Expand
Stabilometry in functional instability of the ankle and its value in predicting injury.
TLDR
The findings indicate that an ankle joint injury did not result in a persistent functional instability; however, such instability did increase the risk of ankle joints injury. Expand
