  Title Improvement in postural sway measured by the Kinect One in three asymptomatic athletes undergoing a multi-modal program of chiropractic care: A case series
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2021 ;2(1):1-15
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

The purpose of this study is to describe the improvements in postural sway measured by the Kinect One in three asymptomatic amateur athletes undergoing a multi-modal program of chiropractic care. An ice skater, a folkloric dancer, and a marathon runner presented themselves to a chiropractic office seeking care at different dates. 

They each received 12 visits of a multimodal program of chiropractic care and were evaluated pre and post with the Xbox Kinect One depth sensor with a postural sway protocol utilizing the software Medidor-One. Different improvements were observed in postural sway in all subjects, specifically: Patient A improved in all conditions and measurements except in sagittal sway and root mean squared of sway during the eyes closed on the mat condition; Patient B improved in all conditions and measurements; and Patient C improved in coronal sway during the eyes open floor condition, root mean squared of sway during the eyes open on the floor condition, coronal sway during the eyes open on mat condition, and all measurements during the eyes closed on mat condition. Other subjective improvements were also observed. The results from this case series show that a multi-modal program of chiropractic care can improve certain postural sway parameters in asymptomatic amateur athletes, denoting a potential sensorymotor improvement in the athletes. More research with a more robust design is necessary at this time to establish a
cause-and-effect relationship between chiropractic care and postural sway improvement.
