Proprioception is the position of the body in extra-personal space; neuromuscular facilitation technique of preceding a static stretch with an isometric contraction. Sensory dysfunctions that result in Proprioceptive disorders include altered sense of bodily sensation and bodily position.

Likewise, Proprioception refers to feedback relative to the tension, length, and contraction state of muscle, the position of the body and limbs, and movements of the joints provided by internal receptors located in the skin, joints, muscles, and tendons.
