Abstract :

The biomechanics alterations make a dysfunction at the neuro-control system joint. The purpose of this study was to analyze the radiographic biomechanical changes in students from UNEVE treated by chiropractic manipulation. We used n=32 students, 71.9% was female and 28.1% was male. We obtained radiographic measures before and after the chiropractic manipulation. The plan of chiropractic treatment was by 2 times per week by 4 weeks. Our results showed changes statistically significant at the biomechanical parameters evaluated. The Ferguson angle in female (39.2?±41.3-41.3?±6.28 pâ?¥0.02) in right iliac flexion mal position in male (214.8?±16.3-220.4?±16.1 pâ?¥0.04), in the posterior analysis of the manipulation at the evaluation between male and female, we observed significant changes in the right iliac flexion mal position (220.5?±14.26-207.9?±10.43 pâ?¥0.001) and left (220.4?±16.1- 207.9?±11.45 pâ?¥0.01), right rotation iliac (49.8?±6.88-43.9?±5.27 pâ?¥0.01), therefore, the study showed a correlation between right iliac and left iliac (coefficient r .93, pâ?¥0.0001) and right rotation iliac flexion mal position, in connection with right rotation iliac and left rotation iliac (coefficient r .75, pâ?¥0.001), the statistical analysis show us significant changes posterior of chiropractic manipulation. The chiropractic manipulation modified the biomechanics of the spine, performed by eight sessions; therefore, we propose that this kind of treatment will impact positive way at the biomechanics dysfunctions with an increased number of sessions.
