Rajvee Manvar, Kinjal Bagthariya
Abstract: OA is degenerative joint disorder of articular cartilage leading to a decreased joint space width and range of motion. OA represent a major cause of impairment and disability among the elderly community. Objective of this study to find of comparative effect of mechanical knee traction versus IFT on pain and functional disability in patients with knee arthritis.30 patients with knee arthritis were allocated into 2 groups. Group A was given mechanical knee traction and conventional therapy. Group B was given IFT and conventional therapy. Visual analogue scale (VAS) was used to assess knee pain and western Ontario and McMaster universities osteoarthritis index used to measure physical function (WOMAC). Treatment was given for 7 days. Data was analysed by using SPSS software version 20. Within group there was significant improvement seen by Wilcoxon signed rank test and Between groups no significant difference using mannwhitney U test and VAS (Z=-0.832, p=-.403) and WOMAC (Z=-.727, p=-.467). result of this study says that mechanical knee traction and IFT both are equally effective in reducing pain and improving physical function in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
