Keywords:Osteoarthritis, Knee, Thera band, Resistance, Strengthening exercises.
Background: The synovial joint capsule, subchondral bone, and joint cartilage are all impacted by the gradual
degenerative condition known as OA. This research work is designed to check the efficacy of modified progressive
resistance training for OA knee patients.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of modified progressive resistance training and conventional treatment on
knee strength in early onset knee OA.
Materials and Methods: 370 subjects were screened for study from GNK physiotherapy clinic according to
inclusion and exclusion criteria from november 2022 to june 2023. Patient’s authorization was acquired after
the procedure was completely clarified to them. They were divided into two categories: Group A (n=185) and
Group B (n=185). The pre and post-test values measured by WOMAC questionnaire and MMT. Group A received
conventional treatment that is strengthening and stretching exercises and Group B received modified progressive
resistance training using Thera band along with conventional treatment. Both training programs were given for 4
weeks, weekly 5 days
Results: A statistically important distinction <0.0001 between groups A and B was found via statistical analysis of
information that was quantitative.
Conclusion: Modified progressive resistance training using Thera band of group A were proven to be more
successful than group A Traditional therapy.
