Abstract
Objective: To study the immediate effect of McConnell taping on pain and knee flexion range of motion in females with patellofemoral osteoarthritis knee.
Background: There is limited study available that supports that McConnell taping can be used in treatment of patellofemoral osteoarthritis knee in females.
Study Design: Experimental Study.
Methods: The ethical clearance was taken from the college and consent was taken from the 60 subjects diagnosed with patellofemoral osteoarthritis knee. Pre and post outcome measures used were NPRS (Numerical Pain Rating Scale) and knee range of motion. The subjects were assessed immediately for change in pain and knee range of motion after McConnell taping.
Results: Pre and post mean values for NPRS were 6.7 ± 1.53 and 3.91 ± 1.29 respectively. Pre and post mean values for Active ROM knee flexion were 79.83 ± 18.62 and 92.08 ± 17.81 respectively.
Conclusion: In the present study, it was found that that there was an immediate effect of McConnell taping on pain and knee flexion ROM in females with Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis Knee.
