Author(s): Ghatpuli Shameer Basha and Amit Kumar Singh

Abstract:
Background: Osteoarthritis of knee is a degenerative joint disease which is most commonly seen in the people of above 45 years in both genders. It happened due to wear and tear changes in the knee joint and formation of osteophytes in knee joint.
Objective: To find out the Long-term effect of Mulligan movement with mobilization on range of motion and physical function in subjects with knee osteoarthritis.
Methods: 40 patients with osteoarthritis of knee were allocated into two groups (20 participants in each group) the outcome measure used was WOMAC questionnaire and Goniometer for range of motion. Subjects of group A were treated with Mulligan mobilization whereas subjects with group B were treated with Isometrics and stretching. For both the experimental group the techniques were performed thrice a week for the duration of 8 weeks and follow up will be done after 4 weeks.
Results: The results demonstrated that significant effect of Mulligan mobilization with movement for the subjects of group A when compared with those of group B at the end of 8 weeks.
