Abstract

Numerous studies on people with gonarthrosis refer only to electrotherapy, shock-wave therapy, radon baths, and classical physical exercise; very few studies recall only the role of facilitating techniques in restoring functional knee parameters. This study was conducted on a total of 12 subjects diagnosed with gonarthrosis divided into 2 groups, group A followed a classical recovery program and group B a program consisting of facilitation techniques for a period of 6 months with a frequency of 3 sessions per week. The results obtained confirm the hypothesis that the parameters tested: pain, joint mobility, muscle strength and stability were noticeably improved in group B those who used  FNP techniques compared to group A and the duration of the session was only 35 minutes at group B, compared to 55 minutes group A.
