Background: Human movements are controlled by efferent input from the central nervous system and afferent feedback from the periphery. Joint proprioception is commonly spoken as the key afferent feedback. Sense of muscle contraction or force sense (FS) is a less explored component of feedback. FS has been tested in stroke, sports personal, and the elderly for its impact on force production, acuity inability to sense, and its relationship with joint proprioception. However, testing is limited to research, and training in clinical setup is not reported. Aim: To understand the physiology, testing, clinical implication, and method of training Force Sense. Methodology: PubMed and Scopus database will be screened with keywords “Proprioception”, “Muscle contraction”, “Force matching task”, “Force sense”, “Sense of effort”, “Muscle proprioception” along with filters for studies in English language and period 2000 to 2021. Results: The study results will be presented under the heading physiology of muscle sense, methods used in testing, population tested, and clinical implication reported. Conclusion: The possibility of clinical testing and application will be highlighted.
