Abstract

Title Role of Mettler’s Release as an adjunct in the management of post-immobilization knee stiffness- A pilot study. Objective To determine the role of Mettler’s Release Technique (MRT) as an adjunct on knee flexion range of motion in post immobilization knee stiffness Methodology Nine subjects who had knee stiffness following immobilization greater than three weeks were included and randomized into control and experimental groups. Five treatment sessions of MRT along with conventional therapy was given to the experimental group and only conventional therapy was given to the control group. Knee flexion range of motion was measured in sitting using standard goniometer pre and post treatment sessions. Results Improvements in knee flexion range of motion were noticed in both the groups, however the improvement was greater in experimental group (22.5±9.85 to 64.5±1.77) compared to control group (37±2.07 to 64.66±6.5). Observation Mettler’s Release Technique (MRT) was an effective adjunct in improving knee flexion range of motion in post immobilization knee stiffness
