Objectives: To investigate changes in the Standing Flexion Test (SFT)
through sensory motor training with an unstable shoe construction.
Design: A standard test has been used to assess and re-assess iliosacral
Background: Routine re-assessment for quality standards of the
osteopathic treatment has suggested that pelvic function and function of
the iliosacral suspension system was improved in a group of patients with
low back pain (LBP) treated with osteopathy and a combined sensory
motor training compared to a control group treated with osteopathy only by
Methods: A single blinded randomised controlled trial (RCT) has been
designed for a group of normal subjects (normal control group n=21,
normal intervention group n=20) and an other group of diabetic subjects
(diabetic control group n = 22, diabetic intervention group n=24) and the
SFT was tested before and after a 6 weeks period.
Results: After a 6 weeks period of sensory motor training with an unstable
shoe construction, both intervention groups improved in the SFT test by
46% and 50% respectively, while the control groups only improved
Conclusion: Sensory motor function is important in the treatment of pelvic
integrity and the iliosacral suspension system. Combination of osteopathic
treatment and sensory motor training with an unstable shoe construction
seems to improve the long-term results for the Standing Flexion Test
(SFT) for over 30%.
