How can I test my own proprioception?

Use simple tests to gauge your level of proprioception.

Proprioception deficits in the lower extremities are pretty easy to identify. If you lose balance or compensatory shoulder motion when you stand or hop on a single leg, you might be receiving suboptimal proprioceptive feedback. If you have suffered an injury and are concerned about your physical responsiveness, consult a professional who can help you diagnose your problem and begin working with you on a rehabilitative program.
