Clinical Features: An 85-year-old male patient presented with a chief complaint of difficulty walking and poor posture. He had difficulty in standing up from a chair with no arms, and was also unsteady on his feet.  The patient was receiving medical care from various physicians for pre-existing comorbidities.

Interventions and Outcomes: The interventions that were performed on the patient included: Sacro-Occipital, Toggle, Activator and Diversified techniques.  These techniques were used to analyze the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions.  

Conclusion: Over the course of chiropractic care the patient had the ability to get up from a chair with ease, and he had noticeable improvements in posture, gait, balance and coordination. He was able to decrease his prescription medication usage.
