RÉSUMÉ

Proprioception is thought to be an essential component of proper joint function during movement. Because the shoulder is inherently mobile, it may rely on adequate proprioception for joint stability and mobility. This article discusses what is meant by joint proprioception, the receptors involved, and studies illustrating the relative importance of this feedback to normal glenohumeral joint mechanics.
