Aims: This study aims to compare the effectiveness of Hold-Relax technique and Maitland's Mobilization in improving range of motion (ROM) in posttraumatic stiffness of knee joint. Materials and Methods: This was a randomized interventional comparative study with 30 subjects with posttraumatic stiffness of knee joint with restricted range of knee flexion were randomly allotted into two groups: Group A was given Hold-Relax technique and Group B was given Maitland's Mobilization consisted of Grade 3 posterior glide along with paraffin wax bath and isometric exercises of quadriceps and hamstring as a common baseline treatment for 5 days per week for 4 weeks. The baseline outcome measure was active knee flexion ROM measured by universal Goniometer before and after 4 weeks interventions. Results: Statistical analysis of data was done using paired t-test and unpaired t-test. Paired t-test showed that statistically significant increase in active knee flexion ROM in both the groups. On comparing by unpaired t-test it was found that both the techniques are equally effective in improving ROM. Conclusion: Both the Hold-Relax technique and Maitland's Mobilization are equally effective, in improving the knee flexion ROM.
