There are so many invasive and non invasive modalities to decrease pain intensity and has adverse effect.

For the clients in experimental group with osteoarthritis acupressure was given with the help of thumb and index finger on knee joint of the body to alleviate pain for 20 minutes and electrotherapy was applied in the knee joint for the control group for 20 minutes.
