Case Study: Chiropractic Improves Vertical Jump Height
A recent study analyzed the effect of a pelvic adjustment on female university students with functional leg length inequality. The students were divided into two groups. One group received chiropractic adjustments using a technique called Gonstead pelvis analysis. The other group received physical therapy and stretching exercises.
Both groups noticed an improvement in leg length inequality, however, only the group that received the Gonstead adjustments had an increase in their vertical height jump.
