    Aim of the Study: The aim of this study is to estimate the association between abdominal obesity and pelvic asymmetry in college-going students. Background of the Study: Pelvic asymmetry is an unequal distance from the iliac crest to the acetabuli bilaterally. When excessive abdominal fat is deposited around the stomach and abdomen, it causes abdominal obesity. It has a negative impact on health. There is a correlation between abdominal obesity and pelvic asymmetry. Methodology: This study is an analytical study of observational type. The study is setting in Faculty of Physiotherapy Department ACS Medical College and Hospital around Chennai. 100 patients of both male and female between the age of 18 and 25 years will be taken. The study duration is 6 weeks. Both male and female between the age of 18 and 25 years body mass index (BMI) >30 students will be included in the study. Individuals with BMI <30 will be excluded in the study. BMI, waist-hip ratio, measuring scale, and goniometer will be the outcome measures. Results: The statistical table and graph reveal that the Pearson Correlation of coefficient “r” value and P-value between abdominal obesity and pelvic asymmetry in college-going students. The value of r is −0.233. The value of R2 , the coefficient of determination is 0.05. The value shows that there are negative association and weak correlation between abdominal obesity and pelvic asymmetry. Conclusion: The study concludes that the negative association and weak correlation were found between the patients with abdominal obesity and pelvic asymmetry. Hence, this study reveals that there was a lesser influence of pelvic asymmetry with abdominal obesity among college-going students.
