Objective: To compare the effectiveness of maitland compression technique with medial glide and conventional therapy in patients with patellofemoral osteoarthritis.

Study Design: Experimental study design.

Subjects: 30 patients between the age group 45 yrs to 65 yrs having dominant patellofemoral osteoarthritis were selected as per the inclusion and exclusion criterion.

Procedure: Using random sampling method the 30 subjects were divided into 2 equal groups with 15 patients each. Both the groups were given conventional physical therapy as a baseline treatment. Along with conventional therapy the experimental group received Maitland Compression technique with medial glide . 3 series of 15 compressions per session for 5 days per week., whereas the control group received only the conventional physical therapy. The study was performed for 3 weeks.Evaluation was done before starting the treatment and then after 3 weeks. Outcomes scores were evaluated using KOOS Scale and VAS scale .

Result: Subjects receiving Maitland Compression Technique with Medial Glide showed significant reductions in pain and other symptoms with an improvement in quality of life.(t of KOOS =10.52 ,t of VAS = 8.064 ).

Conclusion: The results supported the efficacy of Maitland Compression Technique with Medial Glide for rehabilitating the patients with Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis .These changes are clinically significant.
