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.
