Brief Summary:
INTRODUCTION: The Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of joint disease, its features include joint space narrowing, osteophytes formation of the joint margins, motor deficit, reduced strength, and persistent pain. As a treatment option physiotherapy has several resources for the patient approach. However, the effect of treatment is not only the application of therapeutic techniques and resources but also to existing contextual factors such as the therapeutic alliance. OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of an intervention with the focus on positive therapeutic alliance in subjects OA knee on pain and disability. METHODS: This is a randomized study of two arms with a blind evaluator. 40 subjects were randomized into 2 groups: group 1 "Kinesio Taping® KT" group 2 " Kinesio Taping® with therapeutic alliance KT+AT". Both groups received the application of Kinesio Taping® method as the concepts of the original method. The group "KT+AT" session was conducted in order to increase the relationship between the therapist and the patient.
