|Official Title:||Effects of Manual Therapy Versus Therapeutic Exercise on Knee Osteoarthritis: A Randomized Control Trial|
|Study Start Date :||October 2009|
|Primary Completion Date :||May 2010|
|Study Completion Date :||August 2010|
Experimental: Manual Therapy
Subjects will receive oscillatory (grade 1 & 2) manual knee mobilization for 15 minutes at various knee range of motion positions.
Procedure: Manual Therapy
Grade 1 and 2 oscillatory manual mobilization of the tibiofemoral joint at various ranges of motion.
Experimental: Therapeutic Exercise
Subjects will perform 15 minutes of combined resistance exercise and aerobic exercise.
Behavioral: Therapeutic Exercise
Subjects will perform 5 minutes of lower extremity cycle ergometer with minimal resistance followed by 10 minutes of resistance exercise to the quadriceps at 3 tibiofemoral positions (0 degrees, 30 degrees and 60 degrees of knee flexion).
Placebo Comparator: Control
Subjects will watch a 15 minute instructional video on a health topic.
Behavioral: Video Observation
Subjects will watch a 15 minute video on a health topic unrelated to knee osteoarthritis.
- Suprapatellar effusion measured via diagnostic ultrasound [ Time Frame: Outcome measure will be measured 1 minute prior to intervention and 1 minute after intervention. ]
- Pain Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: Outcome measure will be measured 3 minutes prior to intervention and 3 minutes after intervention. ]
- Goniometric knee arc range of motion [ Time Frame: Outcome measure will be measured 5 minutes prior to intervention and 5 minutes after intervention. ]
- Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Index of osteoarthritis of the knee [ Time Frame: Outcome measure will be measured 12 minutes prior to intervention and 7 minutes after intervention. ]
