The Effect of Osteopathic Manual Therapy on the Vascular Supply to the Lower Extremity, Function and Symptoms of Subjects With Knee Osteoarthritis
Not Provided

The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of osteopathic manual therapy can influence the vascular supply to the knee, knee range of motion, balance and knee pain, in a group of subjects with knee osteoarthritis. It is also the objective of this study to determine if there is a difference between the osteopathic evaluation and the combination of an osteopathic evaluation and treatment.
