The research in these articles addresses the following aspects of proprioception training in these patients: the effects of proprioception training and exercise imagery on balance abilities of stroke patients, the effects of proprioception training on the upper limbs in stroke patients, the effects of an ankle proprioceptive control program on stroke patients, the effects of neck proprioception training for balance function in stroke patients, and the effects of a proprioceptive exercise program in water and on land on the balance of stroke patients. Lee, Kim, Ahn, and You (2015) did a study on the effects of proprioception training with exercise imagery on the balance ability of stroke patients. The purpose of this study was to examine and make comparisons of the effects of a general proprioception training program and a proprioception training program combined with another motor learning concept- imagery.
