Osteoarthritis is a disorder of the diarthrodial joint, a slow degenerative disease clinically characterized by pain,
loss of range of motion. On a radiograph seen as reduced joint space, formation of osteophytes, sclerosis of bone
and deformity. Manual therapy has been proved to be an effective treatment method in knee osteoarthritis (OA), but
there is a need to investigate effectiveness of MIMG manual therapy technique. There is limited evidence on effect of
MIMG protocol in knee OA. To find the effectiveness of MIMG protocol on pain and range of motion in knee
osteoarthritis. 30 subjects with the diagnosis of knee OA stage II and III on Kellegren Lawrence classification were
recruited from Shree K.K.Sheth physiotherapy Centre, Rajkot, Gujarat. An interventional study was conducted on 30
subjects. The outcome measures were Pain and Range of Motion (ROM). The intra group comparison was
statistically significant with p= <0.001. MIMG protocol is effective in treating OA knee. Hence it can be suggested
as one of the treatment regime.
