Our sense of touch is so much more than just what we feel with our fingers and toes. Our bodies rely on both internal and external sensations as one of the fundamental systems involved in balance.
In fact, there’s constant equations going on with all the incoming sensory information compared to what we’re telling our bodies we want to do - without our being conscious of it!
Imagine if you had to calculate every step you take in terms of your body weight, your foot support, the surface you’re on, what you are doing with the top half of your body - no thanks! #Grateful for the automated somatosensory system.
At BCTC, we work with our patients and they gain so much stability from getting this system stronger!
