  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Resistive Index (RI)   [ Time Frame: Participants attended one visit; The outcome measure (RI) was before and after an osteopathic session on the same day; The data collection of the 30 subjects took place between Jan to March 2010; each subject had outcomes measured on one day ]

2.  Secondary:   The Knee Flexion Active Range of Motion, Balance and Pain (VAS)   [ Time Frame: Jan 2010 to March 2010 ]
