Brief Summary:

we tested the effect of adding the mobilization with movement to the traditional physical therapy program on pain, ROM and functional disability in patients with knee OA.

study hypothesis: there will be no significant difference between traditional physical therapy program and the mobilization with movement plus the traditional physical therapy program on pain, ROM and functional disability in patients with knee OA
