Neuromuscular spindles: are located between the striated fibers of skeletal muscle and regulate muscle length. They encourage the muscle fibers to shorten during contraction and return to their original position once the stimulus is over. Therefore, they allow the central nervous system to know at all times both the position of the musculoskeletal system and the state of stretching and contraction of the different muscle groups. Golgi tendon receptors: they are found in the tendon and at the muscle-tendon junction. They are stimulated by passive elongation of muscle fibers or by voluntary muscle contraction. Articular corpuscles of ruffini: they are mechanoreceptors distributed throughout the connective tissue that are stimulated by stretching. They provide information whatsapp number list about the position of the joints, the direction and speed of movement. Vestibular proprioceptors: they are found in the inner ear reporting the position of the head and its movement. They are responsible for balance. What happens if proprioception is altered? Muscle reaction time in situations of joint stress and minimizing the time needed to achieve joint stability are two fundamental factors for injury prevention. When the ability to receive information about joints, muscles, and tendons from proprioceptive receptors is impaired, proprioceptive dysfunction is considered to exist . Some of the signs that may occur in case of proprioceptive dysfunction are the following: holding objects too firmly or weakly. Lack of perception of postural changes, both statically and dynamically. Predisposition for falls fluidity deficit
They provide information about the position of the joints content media
