As early as the 1950s joint ligaments were demonstrated to contain sensory endings that are sensitive to small changes in ligament tension and to passive joint movements. Since then the morphological characteristics and the functional properties of these sensory endings have received considerable interest. This chapter is to reviews the information available on the sensory properties of ligaments and their role in motor control and proprioception. Some clinical implications of these findings are also discussed.
