The purpose of the study is to provide frame work of efficient diagnostic and treatment protocol for the people with malpositioned pelvic which causes imbalance of body. Study subjects were grouped as experimental, comparison and control group. Each group consisted of five men and five women randomly assigned. Experimental group was to be tested with Thompson Terminal Technique, its corrective effect and the effect of maintaining the treatment. There were 43.01%p difference in effectiveness of the applied technique between Thompson Terminal Technique and Muscle Energy Technique. It indicates that Thompson Terminal Technique is more effective in treating pelvic misalignment than Muscle Energy Technique. As a result, the use of chiropractic and resistance exercises is proven to be effective for treating the imbalance of body. Also, to maximize the effect of treatment, it is preferable to apply Muscle Energy Technique after applying the Thompson Terminal Technique.
