Objective: To compare the Kalternbohn mobilization treatment with that of Conventional Physiotherapy Regimens in patients with osteoarthritis of Knee joint.

Study design: Randomized clinical trial

Method: 30 subjects were included as per inclusion criteria and then were divided into 2 groups. GROUP A received Kalternbohn mobilization with routine Physiotherapy treatment and GROUP B received only routine physiotherapy treatment.The treatment duration was for 15days. Assessment was done on 1st day and re assessment was done on 7th and on 15th day.Data was analyzed using unpaired t test. Outcome Measures included VAS scale, WOMAC scale.

Result: There was statistically significant improvement for range of motion in GROUP A[ t value 4.37,0.000,p value<o.o5s], there was reduction in pain with [t value 2.47,0.02, p value <0.05s] which was significant in GROUP A, there was reduction in stiffness with [t value2.83,0.01,p value <0.05s] and improvement in physical function with [t value 2.29, 0.04, p value <0.05s] which was significant in GROUP A.

Conclusion: From the study it is concluded that Kalternbohn mobilization is more effective in reducing pain, and improving functional ability in patients with osteoarthritis of knee joint.
