Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic musculoskeletal condition which affects over 27 million Americans. The hip and knee joints are most affected by OA. Many risk factors are modifiable in the development of OA. While muscle energy techniques (MET) are commonly used to treat lumbopelvic dysfunction, limited evidence exists for its use as part of a comprehensive plan of care in patients with OA. The purpose of this case report was to describe the management of a patient with mild/moderate OA utilizing a comprehensive plan of care including MET.
