Abstract

Aims and objectives: To find out the Quadriceps Muscle’s Response to Eccentric versus Concentric Strengthening Exercises in Knee Osteoarthritis Patients.

Methodology: In this study, 23 subjects with bilateral knee OA, A grade 2 or 3 OA, as judged by Kellgren and Lawrence18 based on weight bearing radiographs, volunteered. Before the study, all volunteers underwent a medical examination (cardiovascular, respiratory), and those without any health problems were included in the study. Three groups of patients were randomly assigned: concentric (CON, n 9), concentric-eccentric (CON-ECC, n 8), and non-treatment (NONTX, n 6). Subjects were treated by concentric, concentric-eccentric exercises and outcome were measured and documented.

Results: A significant decrease in pain scores was observed in both training groups, and functional capacity was also significantly increased.

Conclusion: According to this study, patients with OA knee pain can improve functional capacity and decrease pain by undergoing training programs.

Keywords: OA Knee; Eccentric; Concentric Strengthening Exercises
