Test joint position sense by moving one of the patient's fingers or toes upward and downward and asking the patient to report which way it moves. Hold the digit lightly by the sides while doing this so that tactile inputs don't provide significant clues to the direction of movement. The digit should be moved very slightly because normal individuals can detect movements that are barely perceptible by eye.
