Results: The effective rate of the traditional Tuina group was 85.71%, as well the seven steps tuina group 96.92%. The clinical effect of seven steps Tuina is better than traditional Tuina group(P0.05). The pain scores, range of knee motion and Lequesne index in 2 groups after treatment were signfiicantly improved(P0.01), especially in seven steps Tuina group(P0.01).
