Abstract

[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of pelvic adjustment using the Gonstead technique on the stability of elderly men. [Subjects] In this study, 20 elderly men were divided into a pelvic adjustment group (PAG, n = 10) and a control group (CG, n = 10). [Methods] Using a Balance Performance Monitor (SMS Health care, England), the sway area, sway path length, and sway maximum (max) velocity of the center of the body were measured to assess the stability of the subjects. [Results] Changes in the variables of stability were analyzed, and based on the results, the PAG showed signiicant improvement in all items (the sway area, sway path length and sway max velocity of the center of the body) after the intervention of the pelvic adjustment compared to before while the CG did not show any signiicant improvement. [Conclusion] Pelvic adjustment using the Gonstead technique can be used to improve the stability of elderly men.
