Abstract

The study conducted proves that pelvic tilt is one of the root causes of onychocryptosis. Recovering the correct position of pelvic bones via manual methods restores the symmetrical position of the nail edge in the lateral nail fold of a toe, thus preventing any damage to the soft tissues of the lateral nail fold which is what causes onychocryptosis in the first place. By correcting pelvic bone imbalance via manual methods, we can therefore eliminate onychocryptosis without even touching the affected toe.
