Somatic sensation has an important role in the control of movement. The information from a receptor produces perception in the cerebral cortex. Movement is adjusted using this sensory information. In addition, movement is sometimes adjusted by reflex through the spinal cord or brain stem, and it is not perceived. In order to perform a suitable sensory stimulus, physiological consideration of the observed phenomenon is required. In this paper, a previous study of sensory motor function is reviewed, and physiotherapy is discussed.
