WHAT IS PROPRIOCEPTIVE THERAPY?
Also called kinesthesia, proprioception is known as our body's ability to perceive ourselves in relation to movement, location, and completing actions and comprises many of the basic actions we learn to do over time without effort. This can include being able to touch your nose or walk with your eyes closed. However, there are some conditions that can affect proprioception, such as being intoxicated, certain injuries, or the changes that occur in our brains and bodies as we age. The Wellness Institute of Dallas utilizes proprioceptive therapy for patients who struggle with proprioception and tailors their treatment to their individual needs. If you or a loved one require more one-on-one care, reach out to our team in Dallas, TX and schedule a private consultation.

"We travel all the way from west of Fort Worth to go to the Wellness Institute of Dallas. Our whole family has received treatment there for several personal complaints and we always consider them because we keep getting fantastic results. We get regular chiropractic care and we are also getting some neurological therapy, We appreciate Dr. Nutt and all the staff at their facility. They treat us for overall health, and treat us individually and appropriately! I have recommended this practice to friends and coworkers, and I am doing the same for you too. You will probably find, as we do that you will always come away with just the treatment you need and a little good health practical knowledge with every visit."- D.H. / Google / Apr 19, 2020
"I have been seeing Dr. Ednie for prenatal care since I was 6 months pregnant. He has successfully helped me avoid sciatica, which I had with my prior two pregnancies, and kept me mobile and active throughout. The knowledge and atmosphere of the entire clinic is upbeat and positive, and I can't recommend them enough."- S.S. / Google / Nov 29, 2021
"Dr Ednie has helped alleviate my knee pain tremendously. Four training sessions with Dr. Ednie helped strengthen the muscles and tendons around the knee, hips, back and over leg which has made such a difference in the quality of my life. I do not have to avoid stairs anymore!!! He also recommended a supplement to reduce inflammation for a well rounded plan in avoiding surgery. I drive from Plano and highly recommend Dr. Ednie and the entire staff at the Wellness Institute of Dallas."- R.A. / Google / Nov 15, 2021
"I’ve seen chiropractors off and on for years but Dr. Ednie has been the most successful at keeping me running. I’m on my feet all day, workout 6-7 days a week and participate in both running races and obstacle course races. If I didn’t come to the Wellness Center I wouldn’t be able to train at the level I do and would probably have had an injury or two at some point. Dr. Ednie doesn’t just do a generic adjustment and call it a day, but checks with how I’m feeling, what’s happening with my training and asks if there’s anything I think I need worked on."- L.J. / Google / Aug 14, 2021
