BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis knee (OA) has been the most common complaint among men and women. The primary goal for Osteoarthritis (OA) therapy are pain relief and maintenance of joint integrity. OBJECTIVES: To determine the influence of closed kinematic chain exercise versus open kinematic chain exercise on Q-angle in subjects with knee osteoarthritis. METHODOLOGY: 20 subjects were selected from Saveetha College of Physiotherapy by inclusion and exclusion criteria. All these subjects understood the purpose of the study and inform constant was obtained prior to participation. Initially these 20 subjects have been given self assessment osteoarthritis knee. Each subjects have been taken Q-angle measurement by using goniometryand inch-tape. Followed by initial assessment subject with straight leg raises exercise and mini-squat exercise for 20 times twice daily. Post test was done after four week. RESULT From the statistical analysis it shows that the group-A is significantly higher than the group-B, in comparison to both group-A and group-B. CONCLUSION: From the result, the open kinematic chain exercise versus closed kinematic chain exercise on Q-angle in osteoarthritis knee, group-A straight leg raises exercise is more effective than group-B mini-squat exercise.
