Abstract
Objective: To study the effect of kinesiotaping on osteoarthritis of knee in geriatric population.
Design: Randomized control trial.
Setting: Department of community Physiotherapy, Pravara Rural Hospital, Loni.
Method: 30 participants with clinically diagnosed OA were divided into 2 groups (Experimental and Control group). Participants in Experimental group received kinesiotaping along with standard conventional physiotherapy. Participants in Control group received only standard conventional physiotherapy. Both the groups were treated for 3 week. NRS scale, TUG, WOMAC scale was used in participants with osteoarthritis.
Result: On comparing between the groups, it was observed that there is statistically significant between the two groups of pain assessed on NRS. In WOMAC participants of both groups was highly significant and very significant it is used to assess pain, stiffness, and physical function. The physical mobility in the participants was screened using TUG. On comparing in both groups it was highly significant and not quite significant.
Conclusion: The study concluded that the experimental group showed more improvement than control group so it can be started that conventional physiotherapy with kinesiotaping has beneficial effects in participants osteoarthritis of knee.
