Demonstrate safe techniques to enhance proprioception for self and others, explaining each technique.
Demonstration should include activities that safely challenge the individual to perform balance-oriented tasks in response to various stimuli. It should incorporate stable/unstable and soft/firm surfaces, differing levels of sensory input and balance and coordination drills under a variety of conditions. Equipment and techniques used should reflect age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations.
- What are key elements of safe and appropriate proprioception techniques?
- What is the role of proprioception in injury/reinjury prevention?
- What effects do stable/unstable and soft/firm surfaces have on proprioception? How does level of sensory input affect proprioception?
- What types of equipment are used to enhance proprioception?
- How is proprioception measured?
- How can proprioception be enhanced in situations with little or no traditional equipment?
- How do age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations factor in the development of proprioception?
