Darshankumar Padher | Himanshi Sharma


Abstract: Background: Mobilization with Movement and Kinesio Taping treatment techniques were found to be effective on improving pain, range of motion and disability for osteoarthritis of knee. Hence the purpose is to compare the effects of Mobilization with movement and Kinesio taping on improvement of pain, range of motion and disability in individuals with osteoarthritis of knee. Aims: Aim of the study was Immediate effects of mobilization with movement versus Kinesio taping on pain, range of motion and disability among individuals with osteoarthritis of knee. Methods: The study was done after obtaining approval from institutional ethical committee. Subjects who were fulfilling inclusion criteria were selected from the population.58 subjects were included and were divided into 2 groups experimental group and control group. Total duration of the study was for 6 days. Subjects in the experimental group were treated with Mobilization with movement and Subjects in control group were treated with Kinesio taping. Outcome measures used were Visual analogue scale, goniometry and Time up and go test. Data was analysed at pre and post treatment (Immediate effect) using non-parametric tests at 5% level of significance. Results: Analysis using Wilcoxon signed rank test within group analysis and at pre test and post test showed significant improvement in both the outcome measures in experimental and control group. Between group analysis using Mann Whitney U test showed no significant improvement in pre test and post test (Immediate effect). Conclusion: Mobilization with movement and Kinesio taping both the techniques were equally effective in improving pain, range of motion and disability among individuals with osteoarthritis of knee.
